Bartschland Follies Extends Off-Broadway

Following a sold-out engagement at the McKittrick Hotel's Manderley Bar, the weekly midnight residency is moving to a larger space within the venue.

The McKittrick Hotel will expand its Bartschland Follies collaboration with new dates and a larger venue, returning on four Fridays, May 18-June 8 at midnight. The show previously ran at The McKittrick's Manderley Bar.

The Bartschland Follies is described as "an eclectic and eccentric cabaret extravaganza, where a night at the opera collides with a burlesque circus for a high fashion." Susanne Bartsch will host each show, which will feature a rotating roster of performances by nightlife fixtures including Joey Arias, Amanda Lepore, Shequida, Aquaria, Fou York, Dirty Martini, and more.

Bartsch's parties, which she's thrown for three decades, are described as having "provided a venue for countless creative souls and 'creatures' to express themselves, come together and forget the humdrum of the everyday. Since 1987, Susanne has become notorious for the beautiful, strange, and outlandishly dressed people who flock to her events."
