Taylor Mac: 1910s

When: Wed., Oct. 1, 7:30 p.m. and Thu., Oct. 2, 7:30 p.m. 2014

As a part of its 10th season, Carolina Performing Arts honors the centenary of World War I with a string of programming inspired by the conflict. This series-within-a-series kicks off with a world-premiere performance by the mercurial musical theater artist Taylor Mac, focusing primarily on the popular music of the 1910s. Commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts, it's part of Mac's A 24 Decade History of Popular Music, an ambitious cycle that will culminate in a 24-hour marathon performance in New York next year. For now, this first look divides the decade into pre-war, war and post-war songs. Expect theatrics, social commentary and astonishing music. 7:30 p.m., $10–$29, 114 E. Cameron Ave., 919-843-3333, www.carolinaperformingarts.org. —Allison Hussey

Price: $10-$29
