Taylor Mac, USA
Sorry this event has been and gone
The gloriously larger-than-life ukelele-playing,
gender-bending Taylor Mac makes his New Zealand debut with the
wonderfully mind-blowing The Ziggy Stardust Meets Tiny Tim
Songbook, or Comparison is Violence.
International sensation Taylor Mac, making his New Zealand
debut, has drawn from the traditions of drag and performance art to
create a unique style that combines dramatic flair, searing satire
and poignant honesty.

the cult figure Tiny Tim. Being a queen who can take a hint,
Taylor Mac took those reviewers on.

Ziggy Stardust album and reinterprets hits from the falsetto-voiced
ukulele player Tiny Tim.
