A Big Mac attack. Taylor Mac is truly a larger-than-life character. When he's onstage — in his finest and most flamboyant finery — this drag storyteller is as colorful and flashy as a pack of jumping jacks. But Mac is far more than flash and sizzle; he's a one-man ukulele-wielding songster with a witty and oh-so-wicked mind.

Ziggy played ukulele. A few years back, Mac wowed audiences with a song-filled one-man show covering the serious — the fear in the post-9/11 world — and the silly — the joys of wearing a girl's kilt (and, yes, there is such a thing). This time he's back with a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am meditation on Ziggy Stardust and Tiny Tim. The best part? Mac will perform a mash-up of sorts of songs from David Bowie's glam rock classic The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spider from Mars and Tiny Tim's career as a novelty act.

You've been warned. Mac loves to hear the audience laugh, gasp, and sigh. But he doesn't want to hear you chatting away with your date. If he catches you — and he will — he will drag you on stage and put you in drag. You may hate it, but the rest of the audience will love it. So, talk away, brothers. Talk away.
