Cabaret connoisseurs the Bearded Ladies return with another platter of deliciously dangerous, sensationally sweet, and provocatively pleasurable Late Night Snacks. Running throughout the Fringe Festival in a refitted East Passyunk industrial space, these after-hours performances feature different artists every night—from opera singers to drag queens, cabaret stars to art clowns, and everything in between.

Come for one show, come for many shows, or just stop by by for a cocktail and to mingle with Fringe artists and audiences. Part performance installation, part fever dream, part neighborhood jawn, Late Night Snacks is a festival after-party with an expiration date.

Polyseme: A Night of Queer Poets Theatre hosted by John Jarboe and featuring Andrea Abi-Karam, Joey de Jesus, Ted Rees, Levi Bentley, and Kyle Dacuyan
