Contradict This!: A Birthday Funeral For Heroes

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, a group of Philly queers and misfits known as The Bearded Ladies Cabaret gathers overlooking the Whitman Bridge to put this ancestor and his legacy on trial. Come with friends, complaints, heroes and villains alike. All are welcome.

Reserve tickets here. Ticket prices range from $0- $40.

Join cast across the street after the show for an informal celebration at La Peg, 140 N Christopher Columbus Blvd.

This performance is organized in conjunction with the University of Pennsylvania Libraries with major support from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
