Join us for an evening celebrating the groundbreaking work of Taylor Mac, American actor, playwright, performance artist, director, producer, and singer-songwriter. Taylor’s 24-hour, 246-song marathon performance, A 24-Decade History of Popular Music, was hailed by Wesley Morris in the New York Times as “one of the greatest experiences of my life.”

The Edwin Booth Award is given annually by the Doctoral Theatre Students’ Association to honor a person, organization, or company for their outstanding contribution to the NYC theatre community, and to promote integration of professional and academic theatre. Past honorees include: The Royal Shakespeare Company (‘83), Ellen Stewart (‘84), Joseph Papp (‘89), Arthur Miller (‘92), Richard Foreman (‘97), Tony Kushner (‘02), Karen Finley (‘08), The Living Theater (‘09), Elevator Repair Service (‘14) and Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir(’16). The event will feature live performances and a discussion with Frank Hentschker.

Presented by the GC CUNY Doctoral Theatre Students’ Association (DTSA; Elyse Singer, Second Vice President), in collaboration with The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, and
GC Public Programs (Karen Sander, Director).

Additional support from Center for LGBTQ Studies (CLAGS), The Center for the Humanities at The Graduate Center CUNY, and the Doctoral Students’ Council Marvin Carlson, Sidney E. Cohn Chair in Theatre Studies; David Savran, Vera Mowry Roberts Chair in American Theatre.
