Another Ptown Season

I wrapped up my summer in Provincetown with two extraordinary shows (to say nothing of one of the greatest sexual experiences of my life…but that’s another story).  Marilyn Maye celebrated her 12th year at the Provincetown Art House with 94: Of Course There’s More.  To say that Maye is not approaching 100 gingerly is an understatement.  She continues to conquer audiences with vocal abilities that transcend age.  The run included her traditional mantra of “It’s Today” – complete with high kicks – which you can see on our website.

Following Maye was a veritable youngster making his Ptown debut.  Max von Essen has wowed audiences on Broadway and beyond.  The delightful, dashing and debonair crooner chose a selection of (primarily) standards which fit his pristine vocals like a glove.  He truly is a throwback to a time where technique and talent ruled – and his encore without assistance of amplification proved just that.  A clip can be found on
