The Bearded Ladies
The Bearded Ladies Cabaret is a troupe of artists who insist that art can be both intellectual and accessible, both entertaining and meaningful. Cabaret lends itself to artistic explorations of contemporary issues. Through it, the Beards tackle ideas about popular culture, sex, gender, and artistic invention.
The resident cabaret company of the Wilma Theater, they create cabarets that borrow the narrative conventions of traditional theatre and the audience interaction of traditional theatre to create a new form they call the caba-play.
In the last three years, the Bearded Ladies have collaborated with the Media Theatre, Society Hill Playhouse, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Kimmel Center, the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts, and Eastern State Penitentiary to bring their unique form of cabaret to more than 10,000 residents of Philadelphia and the surrounding region.
