In partnership with Opera Philadelphia as part of Festival O23

The Bearded Ladies Cabaret returns for our third annual LATE NIGHT SNACKS, the unapologetically queer performance art pop up that makes everyone a little bit gay. Featuring a wardrobe’s worth of artists from opera singers to drag queens, cabaret stars to art clowns, and everything in between, LATE NIGHT SNACKS is here to convert you. Whether you come once, come every night, or just stop by on your way to the corner store, you’ll leave with a mouthful of rainbows and glitter on your lips. Part subversion therapy, part luxury walk-in, LATE NIGHT SNACKS invites you to join us in The Closet, our custom-built cabaret, for seven minutes in queer heaven. Hosted by a rotating group of snaxx: Jess Conda, Cookie Diorio, Eric Jaffe, Jarbeaux, Sam Rise, Jackie Soro, & US (aka Anthony Martinez-Briggs). See specific dates below for full lineup.

Le Gateau Chocolat and Adrienne Truscott, hosted by Jarbeaux

UPDATE: We regret to share that Le Gateau Chocolat has come down with COVID and will not be traveling to Philadelphia for the show. Instead, the glorious Adrienne Truscott, your host Jarbeaux (John Jarboe) and house band the Midnight Munchies will be whipping up an evening of silliness, using and mis-using as many of the props as possible from the originally scheduled excerpt of Grey Arias. Join us in the Closet and send your favorite healing arias towards our dear friend.

About the Artist

The Bearded Ladies Cabaret is a queer arts organization that sits on your lap and sings you a story. Whether it’s an opera, a home-made cabaret, a musical walking tour, or a show on a truck, we employ song, spectacle, storytelling, and heart to welcome audiences into moments of joy, healing, and subversion. Through sharing our original pieces and creating bespoke platforms for performance at home in Philadelphia, nationally, and abroad, we nurture artistic connection for a community of misfits, rabble-rousers, chanteuses and the people who love and need them.
