Provincetown Preview

We have a Memorial Day tradition here at Billy Masters Worldwide – that’s when we start planning our summer travels.  So now, without further ado, let me tell you what’s happening in Provincetown.  After a somewhat bleak 2020, I am pleased to report that Ptown is back!  As of this writing, everything is re-opening, shows are taking place inside and out, and dance clubs will be buzzing.  However, people are not taking anything for granted.  Rick Murray, proprietor of The Crown & Anchor, has gone above and beyond the call by ruling that entrance to “large scale dance events…will REQUIRE proof of vaccination for entry.”  Bravo, Rick.


But what is Provincetown without shows?  The Crown has the legendary Thirsty Burlington holding court on Mondays, while Well-Strung violinist Edmund Bagnell appears on Tuesdays.  The uproarious Varla Jean Merman brings her Little Prick to the stage Tuesdays through Saturdays, while Dina Martina is on Wednesdays through Sundays.  There are oodles of others appearing, so check out the full schedule of events at

After being shuttered for a year, the Provincetown Art House resumes a full slate of performances, anchored by the hysterical Judy Gold on Fridays and Saturdays in July (Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August).  Seth Rudetsky hosts a number of fantastic evenings, featuring such powerhouse vocalists as Sierra Boggess, Rachel Bay Jones, Liz Callaway, Lillias White, and Beth Malone.  The indefatigable Marilyn Maye takes up residency for two weeks on either side of Labor Day.  And scattered throughout the summer are pals like Steven Brinberg (Simply Barbra), Ben Rimalower, John Hill, Ginger Minj, and many more.  Their entire lineup can be found at

By the by, the Art House also presents several special events at Provincetown Town Hall – including concerts by Stephanie J. Block, Alaska Thunderfuck, Kristin Chenoweth, and Kelli O’Hara.  Same website.


Over at the Pilgrim House, Miss Richfield 1981 continues her reign Monday through Friday, Paige Turner is Wednesday through Saturday, Steve Grand is there July 10-20, and the legendary Sharon McNight returns July 31st through August 3rd.  Specifics can be found on

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that The Post Office Café and Cabaret is reopening under new management.  There will be shows by Seth Sikes, Anita Cocktail, Debby Holiday, Del Shores, and even Jason Dottley.   All the details are on

The Provincetown Theater reopens…with a twist.  Despite restrictions being lifted, they have constructed an outdoor performing space to provide the audience with a safe, tranquil and unique experience.  In June, they have Neptune, which is a one-man show starring Timothy DuWhite.  A writer/producer from This Is Us has written a play called The Cake, which will run in July.  And August will see Tennessee Williams’ classic, The Glass Menagerie, which was born in Ptown.
