Our sister magazine, Bear World Magazine, is back again with another Provincetown guide, this time its a selection of amazing shows to go see this summer in Provincetown.
If you are coming to Provincetown for the sun, sand and tea dances, you might like to take in a show too. For such a small town a huge amount of recognizable names from the drag world to Broadway performers bring their shows either for a one night only deal, or for regular spots all through the summer.
Here are some highlights that we think you will love, and make sure to check all the venues on the ptown.org page for every show that we might have missed!
Bianca Del Rio knows the bears love her (we interviewed her a while back here) and will pack out the theatre for her.
