Bastille Day is back for the 19th annual

Bastille Day is back for the 19th annual celebration! Eastern State Penitentiary teams with The Bearded Ladies cabaret group to present an hour-long spectacle of song, dance, and beheading.

This free theatrical performance will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will culminate in a playful reenactment of the storming of the Bastille. Dozens of French revolutionaries will storm the grim walls of “the Bastille” (Eastern State Penitentiary), will capture Marie Antoinette (portrayed by Terry McNally, co-owner of London Grill) and, ignoring her mocking cries of “Let them eat Tastykake!” will drag her to a real, functioning guillotine as 3,000 Tastykakes are flung from the prison’s towers.

Interested in a better (French Bourgeoisie) view? VIP seating is available for a donation fee! VIP tickets include seating, beer and refreshments, heckling from the lower classes, and revolution goodie bags. Tickets are available online now.

Following the performance, the many wonderful restaurants surrounding the penitentiary come alive with French-themed entertainment as well as food and drink specials. Come early and take a tour of Eastern State (standard admission), or stay late and take a twilight tour following the reenactment.
