Playwright-performance-artist-and-drag-queen Taylor Mac is opening a two-week run of The  Be(A)st of Taylor Mac, at the Undermain Theatre tonight.  He calls his touring, one-man show “a subversive jukebox musical,” and this’ll be his first performance in Texas — where his father was from (Abilene).

The Be(A)st just finished two days at Yale Rep, which got a  “Critic’s Notebook” tout from Hilton Als in the latest issue of  The New Yorker (“an intellectually arduous and beautifully realized piece”), complete with this portrait by Mercedes Lagunas.

    Wonderful! The applause was so sincere, we had all been treated to song, art, thoughtfullness and we were given special messages. To divulge much might take away how he does it. But if you don’t like masks or tatoo’s… you must go. If you are afraid you might not like it… you must go.

      I sincerely ditto Blackie’s comment. Taylor Mac is a true entertainment. Kudos to Undermain for sharing this unique talent with Dallas. I hope they bring him back – I’d enjoy seeing other works by him.
