New in 2019 Set during the fall of the Roman Empire, Nathan Lane stars in a new comedy that takes place just after the conclusion of William Shakespeare's first tragedy.
From the producers: In "Gary," Taylor Mac’s singular world view intersects with Shakespeare’s first tragedy, "Titus Andronicus." In Mac’s extraordinary new play, set during the fall of the Roman Empire, the years of bloody battles are over. The civil war has ended. The country has been stolen by madmen, and there are casualties everywhere. And two very lowly servants – Lane and Martin – are charged with cleaning up the bodies. It’s the year 400 – but it feels like the end of the world.
Author Taylor Mac is the creator, author, and star of the acclaimed "A 24-Decade History of Popular Music," for which he was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. His other works include "Hir," "The Walk Across America for Mother Earth," "The Lily's Revenge," "The Young Ladies Of," "Red Tide Blooming," and "The Be(A)st of Taylor Mac." Mac was the recipient of a "Genius Grant" from the MacArthur Foundation.
