Then, get to know them even more intimately. Learn their deepest, darkest secrets as you compete for the chance to win terrible prizes! Never fear; fabulous prizes also await, but only if you’re brave enough to… GRAB MY JUNK. Hosted by the gifted creator of this debacle: JONNY PORKPIE! “Best Naked Impresario” (NY Press) Producer of the “Best Burlesque” in New York (New York Magazine, The Village Voice)
Saturday, August 20 BLACK MARMOT and THE GILDED SPLINTERS Black Marmot and The Gilded Splinters are joining forces to give you a night of music that melds the sensibilities of folk with the attitude of rock ‘n’ roll. Join these two New England music favorites for what promises to be a spectacular evening.
Saturday, August 20 Christine Ebersole BROADWAY AT THE ART HOUSE is proud to present Christine Ebersole for two shows only! Christine Ebersole won her second Tony Award for “Best Leading Actress in a Musical,” as well as virtually every Off-Broadway award, for her “dual role of a lifetime” as Edith Beale and Little Edie Beale in Grey Gardens. On August 20th and 21st she will make her Provincetown debut at The Art House, with Sirius/Radio star Seth Rudetsky as host and accompanist for both shows.
Saturday, August 20 The Endurance Ride If you didn’t have time to go on the previous rides, this is the one you want. Don’t think of this as a tour, it’s more of an adventure. In 8 miles you’ll bike to the top Roxbury’s five hills, along some of its major roads and past historic monuments. Stops will be limited to give us more riding time to cover as much of the neighborhood as possible. We’ll end in Brigham Circle for a pub lunch to celebrate finishing.
Starts Monday, August 22 Love, Queens who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder “Love, Queens…” depicts 7 women ranging in age, sexuality and female identity. Each of the women wears a different color, representing different aspects of the marginalized woman. In the tradition of Ntozake Shange’s iconic play, “For colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf”, “Love, Queens” uses the beauty of spoken word, song and dance to encourage reflection and healing from the traumas of urban life. The play consists of poetry written by several Philadelphia-based female poets and was compiled and written by Jamila Capitman and Heather Thomas.
