Taylor Mac (Class of 1996), has been nominated for the Distinguished Performance Drama Desk Award. The nomination is no surprise, with Mac’s previous accolades including: The Booth Award, the Kennedy Prize, two Obies, a Tony nomination, and a MacArthur Fellow, just to name a few.

The production, The Hang, is a “ritual celebration of queerness, questions, and the eternity of a moment,” that is “Rooted in the jazz tradition and operatic form, it imagines the final hours of the life of Socrates.”
