August Entertainment Continues!

August 25th, 2014

Late August is a great time to come down and enjoy leisurely outdoor activities and a continuing supply of evening entertainments! You can fill your days with long bike rides, kayaking in the bay, hiking in the dunes, whale watches and sunset sails – with a little shopping and gallery hopping thrown in – but night is your time to kick back with a cocktail and a few laughs, great music, or a new play. Here are some ideas for late August entertainment!

If you want a drag show that's full of heart and inspiration, there's always David Scarbie Mitchell's show, Lip Schtick, at the UU Meetinghouse, now in it's 9th year!

The Art House has some great new and returning artists! Check out “The Golden Gals” with Varla Jean Merman and Ryan Landry on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 until August 30th (two shows on the final night)! In this parody of the iconic sitcom, Varla Jean (Blanche) matches wits with Ryan (Dorothy), Olive Another as Sophia and Brooklyn Shaffer as Rose. You'' love this hilarious send-up!

Another option is to catch the off-Broadway hit production of “The Vaudevillians”, starring Jinx Monsoon, season five winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race! The drag-comedy sensation will reprise her role as Kitty Witless, alongside co-star and co-writer Richard Andriessen, better known as Dr. Dan von Dandy. The show makes its leap to Provincetown after extending its Off-Broadway run five times in New York earlier this season. Your sides will ache from laughter when you leave! Shows every night (except Sunday/Monday) through August 30th at 9 pm.

If your prefer a musical experience, then you won't want to miss an evening with the rising musical stars of “Well-Strung”, the all-male singing string quartet! They have a new show for 2014 called “POPssical”, featuring their dazzling blend classical and pop music selections! Fresh off their first international concert tour, they've been once again wowing the crowds here in town, performing Wednesdays and Fridays to Sundays through August 31st, varying show times.

On August 29, 30 and 31, the Broadway at the Art House Series presents singer-actor Cheyenne Jackson, star of television's “30 Rock” and “Glee”, several Broadway musicals, and numerous films including “United 93” and “Behind the Candelabra” for three performances at 7 pm!

If you want a drag show that's full of heart and inspiration, there's always David Scarbie Mitchell's show, Lip Schtick, at the UU Meetinghouse, now in it's 9th year! You'll laugh, cry, and leave with a smile of joy and hope! Get tix outside the UU Meetinghouse before the 8:30 shows on Thursday through Saturday nights, or you can flag down Scarbie when you see her on the street riding her pretty pink bicycle (you'll know her from her unique hats)! Suitable for audiences of all ages.

On August 29th and 30 at the Provincetown Theater, celebrate the life of a Hollywood and international music icon at "The Wish, The Art of Judy Garland"! The show, featuring singer Lisa Jason Hough and a three piece band, illustrates the true essence and artistry of Judy Garland through her songs and poetry, creating a new understanding of her timeless interpretations. Her poetry, which was never published during her lifetime, paints a lyrical, colorful picture of the human striving for love and recognition. Not an impersonation, but an impression that creates a powerful portrait of the woman who was an influential musician and a history-making movie star.

Finally, you can also sample some fabulous Broadway show tunes and world music on Sundays at the UU Meetinghouse “Great Music at 5 concert series, and savor some smooth jazz at PAAM's jazz series. Next up – Dick Miller and Friends, on Wednesday August 27th at 6 pm!
