In partnership with Philadelphia FringeArts, Opera Philadelphia and the Office of LGBT Affairs

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. Part of the 2022 Philadelphia Fringe Festival and Opera Philadelphia’s O-Fest. 

Drag queen Cookie Diorio hosts an evening of song and dance, featuring the epic proportions of Miss Martha Graham Cracker and gorgeous stylings of jazz and folk artist Queen Esther, accompanied by legendary cabaret pianist and arranger Matt Ray.

Lead support from the William Penn Foundation, with additional support from Barbara Teichert.

Festival Executive Producers: Linda & David Glickstein, Arthur Kaplan & Duane Perry

Festival Co-Producer: Marty Maynard
