This production from McQueen Adams has been canceled. Ticket buyers have been notified by email. Please see below for a statement from the artist.

“As a result of the recent WGA strike the production around the June 10th performance of BLACK CAT at Mass MoCA has come to a halt. We are currently working on a new date for late 2023. We appreciate your understanding!”


“[A] dynamic, high-tech blend of music, impressions and stand-up” — The New York Times

Come be part of the magic as electro-comic and Berkshire native McQueen Adams (Comedy Central, Funny or Die) takes the stage to film his new special “BLACK CAT”. Performing as BLACK CAT, complete with custom headdress from Alterian (Daft Punk), and joined by a group of misfit characters, McQueen mixes synth-wave music, comedy, and incredible visuals for a wholly unique show where the delight of Mr. Rogers meets the bizarro glee of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. A one-man show extraordinaire, see why Thom Yorke hails McQueen as “just brilliant”.

Please note: the performance contains adult content.
