Brooke Spitz, self-proclaimed sexpert, self-published children’s book author, and self-pleasured musical theatre enthusiast, is taking over The Painted Mug for this year's Free Fringe with her signature musical lessons on the birds, the bees, and the sticky stuff in between.


Brooke runs the show in a unique experience where there is much to learn - and very little left to the imagination... SEX TALK is an ongoing, immersive, feminist, sex-positive, sometimes cabaret, sometimes social experiment featuring toe-curling parodies of some of Broadway's most beloved standards.  


Classic ballads are reverse cow-girled into new favorites like Suddenly Semen, On My Own (Engaged in Masturbation) & Don’t Rain On My F*ckade. Brooke turns musical theatre tropes into sing-song gropes and will touch you in places you thought only your partner should.

Sex Talk was first developed in 2015 and has been seen in SoLow Fest, the Jersey Fringe, the York Fringe Festival, on instagram live and beyond. katherine has frequently been joined by collaborator and director Shamus, because some things are just more fun with others.

The Painted Mug Cafe

The Painted Mug Cafe, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is a new performance space, venue for rent, and (soon-to-be) full-service café with espresso bar. ‘The Mug’ was developed by a collaborative team of queer artists seeking to serve and empower our LGBTQIA+ community through ambitious programming made accessible—physically and digitally. The café is on track to be worker-owned, and we will reinvest in the QTPOC and disabled artists of our city by prioritizing a shared narrative in our programming. ‘The Mug’ is an intentional LGBTQIA+ performance space and designed to decenter drugs and alcohol.

We seek to provide opportunities for growth for our member-artists, including access to work, talent-incubation, and professional development. We believe a performance space for queer artists designed by queer artists is as empowering as it is unique.

For our neighbors, we seek to be an LGBTQIA+ affirming asset of the community with great coffee, and the venue chosen to host those personal milestone events that will become lifelong happy memories.
