In adherence to Massachusetts government guidelines in regard to the coronavirus pandemic, the board of directors of the Provincetown Theater has made the decision to reschedule all 2020 productions to the 2021 season.
“Our top priority in moving through this health crisis has always been to respect the safety of our patrons, our staff, and the dozens of actors and artists involved in our season,” said artistic director David Drake, who added that the theater will continue with its development of virtual programs that will be released throughout the year on the group’s website via their YouTube channel.
The roster of 2020 productions to be rescheduled for 2021 include a rare revival of Mae West’s “The Drag,” the world premiere of Sarah Schulman’s “The Lady Hamlet,” the Cape Cod premieres of both Robert Chesley’s “Jerker” and Bekah Brunstetter’s “The Cake,” and Eugene O’Neill’s classic “A Moon for the Misbegotten.” Each of these productions will assume similar spring-through-winter scheduling slots in 2021.
On the web at www.provincetowntheater.org, free-of-charge presentations have been streaming since early March. Along with the monthly story slam series, The Mosquito, the Provincetown Theater most recently streamed “Our Townie Variety Show,” an original production on Memorial Day weekend. All virtual productions are streamed free to the public, though donations are greatly appreciated. A lineup of upcoming virtual programs can be found on the theater’s website.
