Yukio Mishima’s Mysterious Love Story The Lady Aoi Opens Sept 12th!

The South African company of Abrahamse and Meyer perform their acclaimed Noh play September 12-22

In a co-production with the Tennessee Williams Theater Festival, we are proud to bring the world-renowned South African theater artists Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer back to the Provincetown Theater stage with their 2014 TWTF “sleeper hit,” The Lady Aoi for a very limited run of only 8 performances! 

About the Play: In The Lady Aoi, an apparition haunts a hospitalized woman while a mysterious nurse looks on. As body and spirit mix, violent thoughts turn erotic, and a deeper window opens onto a time of fierce beauty and lost love.

About the Production: Under Abrahamse’s direction, The Lady Aoi stars Justin Chevalier and co-creator Marcel Meyer, who employ a dazzling assortment of puppets, masks, and costumes in Yukio Mishima’s modern take on a classic 15th-century Noh play. 

About the Performances: Running Sept 12th thru 22nd, The Lady Aoi performs Thursdays thru Saturdays at 7pm, with Sunday matinees at 2pm, at the Provincetown Theater, 238 Bradford Street in Provincetown, MA.

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.”

The Provincetown Theater Downtown Box Office is open Mondays – Thursdays from 12-4 pm . Located next door to Front Street Restaurant at 230 Commercial Street.

July 8 – August 29

Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays   @   7:00 PM

Tickets $52.50   –   TICKETS NOW ON SALE!
