2nd Annual Provincetown Theater’s American Playwright Award Gala!

Honoring the Life’s Work of Playwright Paula Vogel

Presented by Last Year’s Recipient Terrence McNally

This is the Second Annual Provincetown American Playwright Award Dinner following last year’s Award that was given to Terrence McNally.

This year we are pleased to recognize the life work of the legendary Paula Vogel who has had an amazing writing career. She received the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for her play How I Learned to Drive, which examines the impact of child sexual abuse. But the play that first got her national attention was her AIDS-related seriocomedy, The Baltimore Waltz, which won the Obie Award for Best Play in 1992. Both subjects are still very timely and relevant. Other notable plays include Desdemona, A Play About A Handkerchief (1993), The Oldest Profession(1981), And Baby Makes Seven (1984), Hot ‘N Throbbing (1994), and The Mineola Twins(1996).

The exquisite evening will featuring a lavish 5 course dinner with paired wines, hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and dessert by Chef Liam Lutrell-Rowland of Spindler’s.

Event will be at Baxter’s Landing, 471 Commercial Street, the home of Co-Hosts Ken Fulk and Kurt Wootton. Cocktails at 6 pm, dinner at 8

The Reviews Are Coming In!

Provincetown’s ‘Sweeney Todd’ is a haunting devil’s playground

Howard Karren

Provincetown Banner, July 10, 2019

“Perfectly paced (never a draggy moment) and damn near flawless in its execution — what kind of rehearsal process produces such a smoothly running machine for the second public performance? — this “Sweeney Todd” is a tribute to the directing talents of David Drake. Theater is now a happening thing in Provincetown, and the Provincetown Theater under his leadership is its throbbing heart. May we never get used to the level of excellence and inspiring creativity he consistently delivers — and may it never end.”

Directed by David Drake / Play by Hugh Wheeler and Stephen Sondheim

Composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s musical masterpiece, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, it is one of the signal achievements of the American musical theater of the last fifty years.  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. The Provincetown Theater is proud to present this 40th anniversary production.
