More Ptown Summer Shows

Due to the troublesome racial elements, Splash Mountain at Disney World in Orlando was shuttered in 2023.  It’s been revamped into a new ride – Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, based on The Princess and the Frog.  Ahead of the June 28th opening to the public, Jenifer Lewis met the press for a special sneak peek (her character, Mama Odie, figures prominently on the ride).  Alas, halfway through, the ride stalled.  Leave it to the resourceful Lewis to keep people entertained with an a capella version of “Dig a Little Deeper” – which you can see on

Last week, Rosie O’Donnell was honored by PFLAG NYC for her work raising money and awareness for the organization.  Performing at the soirée was the glorious Christine Ebersole.  While that would normally be notable enough, she obviously needed an accompanist.  At the piano was John McDaniel, bandleader from The Rosie O’Donnell Show.  Then Ro and Johnny reunited for some photos, which you can obviously see on our website.


For the past few months, I’ve been highlighting events happening in Provincetown this summer.  Time to turn our focus onto The Crown & Anchor – the geographic and entertainment center of our little seaside enclave.  Some of our community’s biggest stars will be in residence.  First up, we have Varla Jean Merman’s latest oeuvre, The Errors Tour – a cavalcade of naughty ditties, uproarious stories, and hilarious videos, all delivered from a true raconteur.  She is onstage Tuesday thru Saturday at 8:30PM – and if history has taught us anything, get your tickets in advance.  An even hotter ticket is Thirsty Burlington’s Cher 1987.  There’s little to say about Thirsty as Cher, except she’s been endorsed by the Dark Lady herself and Bob Mackie.  Since Thirsty had to skip last season, you can bet this show will be packed – especially since she’s only appearing Tuesdays at 7PM.  The irrepressible Dina Martina takes over the stage Wednesday through Sunday at 7PM.  There’s tons of other shows and special guests, so it’s really smart to check out  Tell ‘em Billy sent you!
