Do You Want A Cookie?

September 18, 2018 7:30 pm

Philadelphia’s Bearded Ladies Cabaret has some treats for you. Do You Want A Cookie? transforms an old factory to concoct the perfect cabaret confections to satisfy your cravings. Part Great Cabaret Bake-Off, part irreverent romp through cabaret history, the show is at once subversive, joyous, provocative, and communal.

An international cast of cabaret artists perform across two levels of a cavernous space refitted as a seductive nightclub, presenting a live history of cabaret from Le Chat Noir to Weimar nightlife to 21st-century drag.

Do You Want A Cookie? sees the live culmination of a multi-year study by John Jarboe and Sally Ollove of cabaret’s history and evolution — research you can see in The Bearded Ladies’ Digital Fringe offering, The Poison Cookie Jar. After select performances of Do You Want A Cookie? individual artists present extended cabaret acts as Late Night Snacks. Tickets are available for both Do You Want A Cookie? and Late Night Snacks. If you would like to attend the cabaret following Do You Want A Cookie?, make sure to purchase the joint ticket. Only a limited number of joint tickets are available.
