Quotes & Highlights

“Beast Women drag cabaret (literally) kicking and screaming into unconventional territory….an avant-cabaret performance that applies a 5,000-watt jolt of electricity”—Chicago Tribune

Description

A variety of genres are presented in this one of a kind all female showcase. Each night highlights female strength through performance including music, poetry, dance, performance art, spoken word, burlesque, etc.  This is not your typical show.  The artists presented, display their passion, strength, freedom, and sensuality to reveal the very things that make them the women they are today.  The only demands placed on them are to be original and be bold. The show is an invigorating and stimulating experience that operates on a concept of revolving individual performances, so every night is different offering a new and personal experience.
