Provincetown Theater and Dance
The theater and dance is season is well underway in Provincetown. There are plenty of productions to choose from – not surprising since Provincetown had one of the earliest theater groups: The Provincetown Players.
By the way – the Wellfleet Harbor Actors’ Theater has a great summer line-up each year, and it’s only a 20 minute drive from Provincetown.

What: Love! Lust! Revenge!
Composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s musical masterpiece, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. A musical thriller, Sweeney Todd tells the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate, Mrs. Lovett, bakes the victims into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public who can’t seem to get enough of her tasty fare.
