Contradict this was wonderful in Philadelphia. We are now performing it at La Mama Theater as part of Pride month and the 50th anniversary of Stonewall.

Contradict This! A Birthday Funeral for Heroes

June 20 - June 29, 2019


Ellen Stewart Theatre | 66 East 4th Street (2nd Floor)

By The Bearded Ladies Cabaret

Cake, coffin, gavel, choir, composers, live musical trolling!

On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the much lauded homo poet Walt Whitman's birth and the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall, The Bearded Ladies Cabaret is throwing a pageant for the ancestors.  Part trial, part birthday, part funeral, this spectacle will feature original music performed by a host of misfits, drag artists, queers, and a local choir.  Come with friends, complaints, heroes and villains alike.  All are welcome to the death, birth, and reckoning of the great poet.
