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
Malachi Lily, Topsy Pendejo, Sabrina Pantal; We three artists come together as strange and wondrous creatures from another realm. Each artist comes with their own practice but we all represent the inherent magick and thoughtful creation for the uplifting and celebrating of queer creatures everywhere, and the experience of life as a whole! It will be dreamy, it will be silly, and may even bring forth your own magick. Find @theholyhawkmoth, @eppchez, and @soundsfromsabrina, on instagram for snippets of us in time, though who knows what form we will be when you meet us!
