    A SLICE OF P-TOWN! by Zoë Lewis

    Saturday July 30, 2022 at 7:00pm at Post Office Caberet

    Zoë Lewis washed ashore in Provincetown over 30 years ago and like many, was just passing through. The rest is history! She rented a little, ramshackle studio, with ships beams, crooked stairs and sloping floors sandwiched in-between Spiritus Pizza and the Ranch guest house for men. There, she was immersed in the colorful stories of Commercial St, falling asleep each night to the smell of melted cheese and the buzz of the party crowd outside. So many characters walked up her stairs and provided fodder for numerous songs.

    A SLICE OF PTOWN is a nod to these wonderful years. Part musical, part memoir, it takes a look underneath some Ptown’s many layers and makes us smile. Playing a myriad of musical influences, she is delighted to be joined by the virtuosic talents of Parker Ousley on cello, Roxanne Layton (Mannheim Steamroller) on recorder, the Gorgeous Cigarette and the incredible Qya Cristal.

    “Jerker” at Provincetown Theater

    Monday August 1, 2022 at 7:00pm through September 1, 2022 at Provincetown Theater

    The Cape Cod premiere of the late Robert Chesley’s sensuous love story Jerker. Following two gay men in 1980s San Francisco, Jerker charts the development of their romantic relationship via the oft-ridiculed use of phone sex. Upon its 1987 off-Broadway debut, the New York Times keenly observed: “Jerker accurately bills itself as ‘a pornographic elegy with redeeming social value’ and its gamy language and simulated autoeroticism are definitely not for squeamish tastes. But they serve a poignant purpose by pointing out, more bluntly than any other play dealing with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, how the epidemic has threatened one of the fundamental reasons for an entire group’s very existence – its freedom of erotic expression – and challenged its hard-won self-esteem.”
