Bearded Ladies Cabaret

Music Theater

Apr 12, 1861 – The U.S. Civil War

A divided cabaret for a divided time! The Bearded Ladies take on the entire Civil War...in one hour. See Dixie, the Southern Belle imprisoned in the world's largest dress. Admire Walt Whitman, grower of the longest beard from North to South! Hear the dueling sounds of Southern nostalgia and Northern aggression! Featuring old favorites and brand new attractions! John Brown, P.T Barnum and a myriad of historical characters sing, dance, and rock out in an epic battle-of-the-bands. Part Gone With the Wind, part folk-punk extravaganza, with music ranging from 1827 to 2013, The Bearded Ladies give voice to the cultural legacy of one of the most defining conflicts in American history.

"Givens at a Bearded Ladies cabaret: great singing, exciting staging, vivid performances, daring costumes and wacky cardboard sets. Topics and styles, however, are less predictable." Mark Cofta, CityPaper
