Taylor Mac’s Holiday Sauce … Booster!: 2 Live Tapings
December 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm$25
Taylor Mac’s beloved annual holiday extravaganza, Holiday Sauce, blends music, film, burlesque, and random acts of fabulousness in the most subversive and cathartic event of the season. Jersey City Theater Center invites you behind the scenes to be part of the live studio audience when Taylor and the band are filmed live at White Eagle Hall. Enjoy TWO shows: 6pm and 9pm
Ibsen Award winner and MacArthur Fellow Taylor Mac (who uses “judy” as a gender pronoun) invites long-time collaborators and surprise special guests to celebrate the holidays in all of their dysfunction. There is more to the holidays than rampant gift-giving— in Taylor’s world, creativity and imagination are their own spirituality. Taylor Mac reminds us of the collective power of our chosen families, a message that rings true in spite of capitalism’s attempt to hijack the holidays.
Since its premiere in 2017, gathering your chosen family to watch Taylor Mac’s Holiday Sauce has become an annual holiday tradition. When the COVID pandemic got in the way of touring plans, the show was reimagined as “a virtual vaudeville” and was broadcast to Taylor Mac’s international community. In keeping with tradition, the 2021 edition will feature new songs by Taylor (in a new look by Machine Dazzle) and all the fan favorites from yesteryear.
For the safety of our guests, staff and performers, proof of full Covid-19 vaccination is required for entry to White Eagle Hall. Proof may be provided via displaying your vaccination card physically, digitally or via a photo. Thank you for your cooperation. Please note that the information on your proof of vaccination must match with your ID.
