In partnership with FringeArts, Opera Philadelphia and the Office of LGBT Affairs
The Bearded Ladies Cabaret returns for our third annual LATE NIGHT SNACKS, the unapologetically queer performance art pop up that makes everyone a little bit gay. Featuring a wardrobe’s worth of artists from opera singers to drag queens, cabaret stars to art clowns, and everything in between, LATE NIGHT SNACKS is here to convert you. Whether you come once, come every night, or just stop by on your way to the corner store, you’ll leave with a mouthful of rainbows and glitter on your lips. Part subversion therapy, part luxury walk-in, LATE NIGHT SNACKS invites you to join us in The Closet, our custom-built cabaret, for seven minutes in queer heaven.
STRUT! A Harlem Renaissance Cabaret features Philadelphia-based artist Cookie Diorio, who takes the audience on a musical journey that celebrates creatives from the Harlem Renaissance and their impact on the cultural landscape today. Music highlighted as part of the event includes works performed by Bessie Smith, Ethel Waters, and Billie Holiday, as well as works by Margaret Bonds and Florence Price newly arranged for voice and band. Cookie Diorio will be joined by a lineup of amazing Philadelphia-based artists as part of this hour-long cabaret.
Hosted by Cookie Diorio
