What to Expect at "A 24-Decade"
This is unlike any performance you’ve ever seen; A 24-Decade History is not just watched, it is experienced. As a member of the audience, you’re a part of the show, and you’ll help bring the stories to life. You never know exactly what’s going to happen next, so you should be ready for anything. Leave your expectations at the door and prepare to be transported to see the world in a whole new way. Every performance creates a new community, every moment has the potential to be “the” memory that will stay with you always. It’s no stilted, scripted history lesson: it’s the stories you’ve heard told in a way you haven’t seen before.
This show employs theatrical haze, strobe effects, and glitter. Lots and lots of glitter! While there is no strict age minimum or requirement, the show is recommended for mature audiences (however you choose to define it).
How long is the show?
This abridge version of A 24-Decade History of Popular Music is expected to last approximately two hours and will be performed without intermission.
Can I bring food/drinks into the show?
Bing Concert Hall’s Interlude Café will be open before the performance but concessions are not allowed inside the auditorium.
Will I be able to take a break?
You’ll be encouraged to take care of yourself during the extravaganza. This means that bathroom breaks can be taken at your leisure.
Will I be separated from my stuff?
Possibly! Please leave large bags and other items at home. We want you, your seat, and the ground around your feet to be unencumbered. Coat check will be available.
Will I be sitting with my friends the whole time?
There will be time to sit with friends and loved ones and time to be with strangers.
Can I post during the show on social media?
Yes! We encourage you to document your experience online (so long as it doesn’t distract from your participation). Please use #TaylorMacStanford and tag us, @stanfordlive, in your posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
Talking and/or texting during the show is discouraged, and we ask that all phones be turned to silent—Taylor will not be shy about calling you out!
