The original version of performance artist Taylor Mac's "A 24-Decade History of Popular Music" is 24 hours long. That's right -- 24 hours of nonstop costume changes, singing and audience participation that starts with the civil war and doesn't stop until it gets to today. However, you won't have to go through the whole 24 hours when Mac brings the first part of this grand production to Kimmel Center-Merriam Theater. Now divided into two 12-hour chapters, this breakneck journey through the history of American song also reveals the long and spotty social history of America. It's not just a show, it's an experience -- and the audience participation quickly builds a sense of community. You'll probably go out of your comfort zone at least once or twice, but it will all be 100% worth it. [less-]

Leave it to a surgeon-turned-satirist to expertly diagnose what ails our modern political climate -- and to make you laugh the entire time. Dubbed the "Jon Stewart of Egypt," Bassem Youssef created the first political satire show in the Middle East, "Al Bernameg" ("The Show"), after realizing that "satire brings awareness and breaks down taboos," as he once told "Rolling Stone". Since then, Youssef has become a star on TV and YouTube, and was recently named one of "Time"'s "100 Most Influential People in the World." In "The Joke Is Mightier Than the Sword", Bassem shares his personal story along with his thoughts on the political climate that led to the Arab Spring, its parallels to the current state of American politics, and how propaganda lays the foundation for dictatorial regimes. He'll share his unique perspective and biting wit at Kimmel Center's Verizon Hall in Philadelphia. [less-]
