Cabaret connoisseurs the Bearded Ladies return with another platter of deliciously dangerous, sensationally sweet, and provocatively pleasurable Late Night Snacks. Running throughout the Fringe Festival in a refitted East Passyunk industrial space, these after-hours performances feature different artists every night—from opera singers to drag queens, cabaret stars to art clowns, and everything in between.

About the Artists

Before he was an opera singer, Anthony Roth Costanzo was a Broadway baby moving from community theater to Broadway national tours, to the Great White Way. Join in as he revisits those shows, and sings all the leading ladies’ songs he never got to perform as a kid.
Countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo began performing professionally at the age of 11 and has since appeared in opera, concert, recital, film, and on Broadway. He has produced operas, installations, concerts, and performance series internationally. Next season, among his many appearances, he returns to the Met for the title role in Akhnaten. He has appeared with many of the world’s other leading opera houses including the Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Canadian Opera Company, Glyndebourne Opera Festival, English National Opera, and the Teatro Real in Madrid. In concert he has appeared with the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, London Symphony Orchestra, and the Berlin Philharmonic, and at Carnegie Hall, the Elbphilharmonie, and The Kennedy Center. This year, Costanzo’s first album, ARC, was nominated for a Grammy and he was named Musical America 2019 Vocalist of the Year.

Jeannie Brooks has been a headliner at the Cape May Jazz Festival for many years. She has also been a top star in New York, Philadelphia, and Europe. And now you can add Grammy winner to her many accomplishments. No matter who she shares a stage with, Brooks holds the attention of everyone in the room. Brooks treats her crowds to all sides of her musical personality, whether it be Jazz, gospel, funk, or R&B. Her voice is the kind that stays with you and haunts your dreams. Jeannie changes speed and style on a dime and her jazzy rhythm and blues treatment of any song delivered, is excitement beyond belief.

John Jarboe is a cabaret artist, director, writer, historian, and host serving you revolution, herstory, queer community making, and a whole lot of glitter. She is the founding artistic director of The Bearded Ladies Cabaret, transforming opera, cabaret, and live performance, making work that will make you sing, dance, and question.
