What's Happening

September 18th, 2012

With the cool air comes the equally cool vibes of many fantastic performers and pastimes to delight locals and visitors alike and to satisfy varied interests and desires.

According to audience member Tim Richmond, “He sits down at that piano, and doesn’t stop for a break until his set is over after midnight. I don’t know how he does it.” You HAVE to see this wonderful whirlwind in action.

Provincetown’s favorite “cabaret man,” Bobby Wetherbee is tickling the ivories in the Central House at the Crown every Friday and Saturday night. I saw him this weekend, and he is a little DYNAMO. In his first hour at the piano, he delivered a rapid-fire stream of song, music history and patter, had the entire audience singing “Over the Rainbow” and “Walkin’ After Midnight” at full volume, and brought laughs with his rendition of “I Want to be Evil,” complete with the famous Eartha Kitt purr. According to audience member Tim Richmond, “He sits down at that piano, and doesn’t stop for a break until his set is over after midnight. I don’t know how he does it.” You HAVE to see this wonderful whirlwind in action.

For those desiring a slightly more subdued musical experience, The Great Music Series at the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House continues its run on Sundays at 5 pm until October 10th. Coming attractions include a Broadway tunes concert, a performance by singer-songwriter David Roth and a piano concert with John Thomas and Paul Bisaccia. Schedule, info and tickets are available at the Great Music Series website.

At the Art House, the all-male singing string quartet Well Strung are still holding court on weekends through September 22nd. This is an act you don’t want to miss! Tickets are $30-35.

On September 22nd and 23rd, Broadway star, film actress and Second City comedienne Jackie Hoffman will perform two shows as part of Seth Rudetsky’s Broadway at the Art House series. The Village Voice has hailed her as a mix of “Carol Burnett's rubber face, Sarah Silverman's outrage, Ethel Merman's vocal throttle, and Gladys Kravitz's world view.” She’s not for the faint of heart or the politically correct – her act pokes fun at everything from children to public displays of affection and her fibroid tumor(!) and Broadway, but she’ll have you laughing till you cry! Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets.

Devotees of high energy dance music, hot bodies and good friends can continue to get their groove on at the Boatslip Resort’s Tea Dance every Saturday and Sunday from 4-7 pm, through October 28th (no dance on October 21st due to off-season sechedule). DJ Maryalice, a 25-year veteran of the “wheels of steel,” presides. Save these dates – the Halloween Tea is October 27th, and the final Townie Tea is October 28th.

Club Purgatory keeps the partying nonstop with Latin night on Wednesday, country-western dancing on Thursday, both hosted by DJ Humby, and Retro Night on Friday. On Tuesday nights, indulge your inner Sinatra at Karaoke Night, hosted by Anita Cocktail, Provincetown’s own Miss Gay Massachusetts 2012.

For the outdoor lover, Dolphin Fleet whale watches will continue to run 3-4 trips a day through October 28th, starting at 9:45 am. At this time of year, it’s a smart idea to carry a warm sweater and/or a rain slicker for sudden showers and to wear shoes with good traction. They guarantee that if you don’t see any whales, you get a free admission for another trip. Tickets are $44 for adults and $29 for kids under 12; see their website for discounted reservations.

Art’s Dune Tours will also continue tours of the Cape Cod National Seashore through October. Trips include one-hour daily tours, tours of Race Point lighthouse, and two-hour sunset tours, with or without a New England clambake dinner. Reservations and schedules are available on their website.

Chris Daniels is a writer, photographer and woman-about-town who shares her life with a bossy cat and “Damon, the Dog With the Toy”.
