About the Artist

The Bearded Ladies Cabaret is an interdisciplinary troupe of artists who reinvigorate and redefine the form of cabaret in the 21st century by fusing it with theater, opera, and dance. They play with nostalgia and humor to question the embedded social messages in popular culture and tackle the politics of gender, identity, and artistic invention with sparkle and wit. Their work has been seen all over Philadelphia including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Eastern State Penitentiary, Opera Philadelphia, the Wilma Theater, and FringeArts and they have brought their cabaret revolution to Miami, New Zealand, Seattle, Paris, Maryland, Delaware and New York City (Ars Nova, La Mama, and Joe’s Pub).


Late Night Snacks is made possible by a grant from the Wyncote Foundation as a sponsored project of Painted Bride Art Center, Inc. Snacks is also funded by the Barra Foundation with additional project support provided by The Velocity Fund administered by Temple Contemporary at Tyler School of Art and Architecture, Temple University with generous funding from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Barbara Teichert.

Presented in partnership with Opera Philadelphia and the Mayor’s Office of LGBT Affairs. New York presented in partnership with Joe’s Pub.
