| FringeArts' monthly cabaret extraveganza comes to the Fringe Festival! Curated by John Jarboe and featuring performances from Jarboe and German cabaret artist Dieter Rita Scholl, Get Pegged Cabaret will lure you inside a reimagined La Peg, then jumps you with unrestrained intimacy and spectacular performance.
John Jarboe is the Artistic Director of the Bearded Ladies Cabaret. A Philadelphia-based theatre artist, John graduated from the University of Michigan, with a BFA in Theatre. In addition to directing, choreographing, producing and performing with the Beards, John finds time to collaborate outside the cabaret world as an actor, musician, teaching artist and consultant. He volunteers for Attic Youth, a local center that creates opportunities for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth in Philadelphia.
