Dive into the classic children's story Peter and the Wolf with Bearded Ladies' drag artist John Jarboe and Revolution Winds. Complete with animal drag, snacks, and singing, "Peter and the Duck" is a reimagining of Sergei Prokofiev's symphonic fairy tale for a new generation of families.
Adult performance at 8 pm (click here for tickets):
What if Sergei Prokofiev's beloved composition Peter and the Wolf -- the musical symphony for children -- contained fake news? The Bearded Ladies Cabaret's John Jarboe and Revolution Winds explore Prokofiev's dark story by removing the quacking duck from the classic story's center. Join them for a "happy hour" musical meditation on generational angst, propaganda, Soviet influence and the dangers of story time. Cake and cocktails served!
