Labor Day Already?!

Shows That Can't Be Missed

August 19th, 2013

With the last week of August and the Labor Day weekend, there's a wide variety of quality entertainment to choose from!

Art House plays host to Tony award-winning actress and singer Patti LuPone for four shows, on August 31st and September 1st, at 5 pm and 7 pm!

Need a laugh? Comedienne Jessica Kirson, recently voted "Best Female Comic" in New York City, performs at the Crown Cabaret from August 25-29! Her impersonations of the "Jersey Shore" cast, old Jewish ladies, and the different ways black and white families sing "Happy Birthday" will have you in hysterics! Her show is at 7 pm on the 25th and 9 pm each night thereafter.

How about some theater? If you're spending extra time here before the holiday, you'll want to check out "Delicate Lessons," a new musical playing at the Provincetown Theater on Wednesday, August 28th! This new musical written by Jim Brosseau is the story of a year in the life of lead hard-nosed magazine editor Michael Tagg, who embarks on a quest for love that takes him instead on a challenging journey of self-revelation. Performers include Dian Hamilton, Chev Hardy, Spencer Keasey, Jack Kelly, Phoebe Otis, Doug Repetti, Bragan Thomas, Todd Wagar and Mark Weinress, with Mr. Brosseau accompanying on piano. Show starts at 8 pm, and tickets are $12.50.

The Provincetown Theater is also the place to see the Charles Busch comedy, "The Tale of the Allergist's Wife," Thursday August 29th through Sunday September 1st at 7:30 pm! A middle-aged Upper West Side doctor’s wife is engulfed in a life crisis of Medea-like proportions, and nothing helps her shake her lethargy until a fascinating and somewhat mysterious childhood friend appears on her doorstep and turns her world upside down. The play, directed by Margaret Van Sant, features Lynda Sturner, Aaron Tone, and Fred Biddle. Tix are available at OvationTix.

The Art House is offering up some exciting late summer entertainment! Art House plays host to Tony award-winning actress and singer Patti LuPone for four shows, on August 31st and September 1st, at 5 pm and 7 pm! Her extensive stage credits include her Tony wins for "Evita" and her most recent performance in "Gypsy," as well as performances in "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" and many other plays. You won't want to miss this multi-talented Broadway, film and television actress in her exciting live shows! Get your tickets before she sells out!

At the Crown and Anchor," special shows for the holiday weekend include Miss Coco Peru in "She's Got Balls." In her new show she reflects on her early childhood dreams of being a stripper, her crush on the Creature from the Black Lagoon, her summers spent on a nude beach with her Spanish husband, Rafael, and more. Inspired by her mother's advice to have the balls to say whatever she feels like saying, Coco is on a quest to do just that and, in the process make the world just a little more beautiful. Show runs from August 28th through September 1st at 10 pm.

On September 2-3 at 8 pm, you can enjoy the talents of vibrant musical artist Roslyn Kind! She is familiar to both national and international audiences for her headlining appearances in such well known venues as Lincoln Center, The Greek Theater and Carnegie Hall. The London Times noted “To say she is superb would be an understatement.” She's just returned from touring the US & Europe where she was featured, and sang a duet with, her sister Barbra Streisand. Don’t miss this dynamo of a talent.

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