The Bearded Ladies Cabaret, in conjunction with FringeArts and Opera Philadelphia, will create and curate the space, called Late Night Snacks.
The Bearded Ladies, Philadelphia’s experimental cabaret group, has teamed up with Opera Philadelphia, FringeArts, Vox Populi, Hidden City Philadelphia, Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation, and the Mayor’s Office of LGBT Affairs to present a one-of-a-kind pop-up bar which will feature nightly performances from some of the world’s most renowned cabaret artists, along with cocktails and an inclusive, welcoming environment. “Late Night Snacks” will open on September 7, 2019 at a refitted industrial space at 1316 S. Percy Street, Philadelphia, and feature programming Tuesday to Sunday through September 29, 2019.
The place to see and be seen after taking in Fringe Festival or Opera Philadelphia’s Festival O19 performances, Late Night Snacks will feature an eclectic roster of artists from both the region and around the world, including the likes of opera star Stephanie Blythe, Justin Vivian Bond, Adrienne Truscott, Martha Graham Cracker, and more. Patrons can drop by after taking in an earlier show throughout the city, or can pay a visit just to experience the cabaret and bar itself.
The pop-up cabaret bar will be presented in a converted auto body shop, located at 1316 S. Percy Street. The Bearded Ladies, along with installation designer Machine Dazzle, will convert the space into a speakeasy like none other, featuring cocktails crafted by bartenders from Sassafras and the iconic Old City venue The Tin Angel. They’ll also be serving Opera Philadelphia Ale (OPA) by Flying Fish. It is the goal of The Bearded Ladies to provide access to the world-class cabaret space for all; therefore, there will be “pay what you can” tickets available every night to all performances of Late Night Snacks.
Single tickets to Late Night Snacks will be available starting on August 16 by visiting FringeArts.com. Further details on the cabaret line up will be announced at a later date; follow The Bearded Ladies on social media to keep up-to-date on artists and surprise guests throughout the duration of Late Night Snacks.
