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.
Join celebrated local composer Jennifer Higdon in a musical mystery tour through her love: love for an album and love for a person. With a little help from her friends (a group of local queer composers), Higdon will weave together songs from her favorite album, the iconic Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and original love songs she wrote for her wife Cheryl Lawson. Higdon and Lawson will join host Jarbeaux onstage for this late night of music and storytelling. Featuring performances by singer-songwriter Emily Bate; sonic painter of impossible worlds, Mel Hsu; and Snacks host Sam Rise. With musical supervision by Opera Philadelphia’s Elizabeth Braden.
Hosted by Jarbeaux
