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.
Important Nutritional Information
Late Night Snacks ingredients may include artistic experimentation, adult content, consensual touch, ear worms, nudity, jubilation, great selfie material, rampant queerness, and many repeat visits. Not every show will be for everyone so feel free to come, and go, as you please. You know your diet, taste, allergies, and aphrodisiacs better than we. Late Night Snacks are experimental and works-in-progress. When we can, we will provide detailed ingredients for each show ahead of time online so you can decide how best to snack. When ingredients include any items listed below, there will be a notice at the on-site box office.
Nutritionally sensitive ingredients: references to abuse, assault, self-harm, suicide, violence, mental illness, death, blood, or blood play.
