provocateur the un-cabaret

A non-traditional cabaret, written and directed by Beth Trifilo, backed by a Rhythm&Blues band, took a retrospective look into issues like women's rights, voting rights, lgbtq rights, and sexual liberation, throughout the 20th century. The show played to a sold out crowd for its seven show run. 


Acting, Writing, & Directing

Beth has been on stage for most of her life, in her first musical at age 7, then taking on more substantial roles as time went on, like the Angel in Angels in America. Her love of the stage has transformed as her focus evolves through different mediums. Filmmaking has taken the driver's seat for the past few years and has taken Beth all throughout Europe and several states of North America. Her most recent project is a documentary on young Syrian men and their journey from Syria to Europe. 

Directing is what Beth loves to do most.
