The Bearded Ladies Present: Late Night Snacks

When: September 8th – October 1st (performance times vary)
Where: The Closet, 201 South Street

The Bearded Ladies Cabaret returns for their third annual LATE NIGHT SNACKS, the unapologetically queer performance art pop up that makes everyone a little bit gay (now on South Street!!). 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, the Beads’ custom-built cabaret, for seven minutes in queer heaven. Hosted by a rotating group of snaxx: Jess CondaCookie DiorioEric JaffeJarbeauxSam RiseJackie Soro, & US (aka Anthony Martinez-Briggs).
