The SwitchMap

A mixed-plate performance that’s 50% cabaret destination, 50% neighborhood jawn, and 100% good to the last bite.

The Bearded Ladies Cabaret shares a new selection of guilty pleasures, soul nourishment, and tasty cabaret treats in this year’s Late Night Snacks. Performances feature different artists every night — from opera singers to drag queens, cabaret stars to art clowns, and everything in between — all baked together and seasoned to perfection, blending the rich cultures of Philadelphia with entertainment like you’ve never sampled before.

Whether you come for one night, come every night, or just stop by on your way to the corner store, this potluck of a performance series is here to welcome you with music, drinks, and more enticing entertainment than you can fit on a single paper plate. Check back here for detailed ingredients for each show so you can decide how best to snack. Full lineup to be announced mid-August.

Content Considerations

Ingredients may include artistic experimentation, adult content, consensual touch, ear worms, nudity, jubilation, great selfie material, rampant queerness, works-in-progress, 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 do.
