Veteran cabaret performer Taylor Mac’s epic 24-hour concert “A 24-Decade History of Popular Music” will be abridged down to regular concert length May 4 at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, as part of the seventh annual Montclair Film Festival. The performance will benefit the festival’s year-round film and education programs.
In a press release, Montclair Film executive director Tom Hall described the work — which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this year — as “uniting theater, music, history, and community through the power of Taylor Mac’s visionary storytelling.”
Tickets are available at montclairfilm.org. They range from $25 to $99.50, with special $200 tickets including a post-show reception.
This is the first confirmed event for next year’s festival, which takes place from April 26 to May 6.
