Christmas as Calamity!
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. 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. Jersey City
Theater Center invites behind the scenes to be part of the live studio
audience when Taylor and the band are filmed live at The White Eagle
