Taylor Mac gets some action at The Fez
If you have never seen Taylor Mac before, youre missing out. This writer/performers newest creation is morbidly entitled, Cardiac Arrest or Venus on a Half Clam. And no, I cant explain the title.
Taylor is a lithe, sexy performer who loves to perform covered in eerily clown-like makeup mayhem. Categorized as Performance Art Cabaret, if this drag show is anything like Taylors The Face of Liberalism, its nothing like Kiki and Herb (alright, so I havent seen that show, but from what I hear )
Topics Taylor promises to cover in this Armageddon-style love fest are: gay marriage, backroom sex orgies, and his failing relationship with Vice Prez. Dick Cheney (what would Bush say?). Im guessing there will be original songs to familiar music, and witty banter thrown around.
The bottom line? This performer should be on your radar. Hes got a lot going on. Currently Taylor is developing a new work commissioned by Dixon Place, was recently seen at The Fez in Karen Finleys Make Love, and has had a handful of plays produced in NYC.
