Brokelahomo!

Sundays through  9/9 at 7:30 pm

What: Ryan Landry’s latest play, Brokelahomo, is about a town in trouble. Overrun by dirty, outlaw gays, the few law abiding citizens left must spend their days dodging bullets, putting out church fires and fearing for their pets lives. That is until a heterosexual is sent for. Enter Dusty Rhodes, the unlikely hero of this far out fable set in the groovy 1860s!  Will Dusty clean up the town? Or will the gay cattle rustlers and homo hoodlums head him off at the pass? These questions and more will all be answered with a hearty Yippee-I-Oh-So-Gay!

Love! Valour! Compassion!

7/16 – 8/30, Mon – Thu

What: Terrence McNally’s Love! Valour! Compassion! is the story of friendship, loyalty, lust and love between an intergenerational group of gay men who gather over the course of one summer in a turn-of-the-century farmhouse in Duchess County, New York. By turns hilarious, sexy, and deeply moving, indeed their journey allows each man to claim a deeper depth of love, valour, and compassion for themselves, for one another, and for the unknown road ahead.

What: “The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of Martha Stewart” tells the fascinating story of the woman who changed the way we live our lives by daring us to try harder.

Provincetown Murder Mystery

Fri, 8/10 – Sun, 8/12 & Fri, 8/17 – Tue, 8/21

What: Direct from a hit engagement in New York City, Lucky Devil Theater Company and The Crown & Anchor present Anthony Gelsomino’s Provincetown Murder Mystery. Touted as a “camptastic adventure through everything Provincetown”, Lucky Devil Theater Company promises plenty of laughs and surprises.

Featuring the talents of Provincetown local favorite Liza Lott (Hocus Pocus featuring Jinkx Monsoon), this laugh-a-minute romp tells the tale of 3 best friends who rent a haunted hideaway right above Dick Dock in Ptown. Gene Dante (God Save The Queen) stars as the alpha bear Danthony, Karl Gregory (NightCap with Jeff Hiller) is the ex twink Bleache and Ben Dawson (Chefs!) adds the hunk factor as a bulging Bulgarian. Hilarity ensues when the threesome are forced to avenge a ghost’s past lover or face impending doom. And who better to voice this sassy spectre than RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars alum Shangela Laquifa Wadley.

Who knew that a simple carefree weekend in Provincetown would become a murderiffic laugh out loud misadventure?

Midnight at The Never Get

Thu, 9/6 – Sat, 9/8

What: Midnight at The Never Get imagines two men who never existed at a time that very much did. Trevor Copeland and Arthur Brightman have the perfect New York romance – but it’s 1965 and against the law.

So in the back room of The Never Get, an illegal Greenwich Village gay bar, they put together a show called Midnight, a queer nightclub act where Arthur writes love songs for Trevor to sing to a man. By the late 60’s, tensions in the Village reach a breaking point, and the lovers find themselves caught in a relationship they can’t control and a movement they don’t understand.

When: Thu, 9/6 – Sat, 9/8 at 7 pm

Where: The Art House, 214 Commercial Street | Directions

Cost: $40.00; VIP $65 | Buy Ticket
