Cheyenne Jackson Returns to Provincetown's Art House This Weekend
When Cheyenne Jackson made his debut in the Broadway @ The Art House series hosted by Seth Rudetsky last month, the Cape Cod Times called him "a singer with tremendous style" and raved that "his vocal range goes deep for Elvis-like tunes but can flip to a high, yowling falsetto" and "his dance moves go from sultry to hip-swiveling rock." On the heels of selling-out all three of his July 4th holiday weekend shows in Provincetown, he has announced a return to The Art House for Labor Day weekend, this weekend, August 29, 30, 31 at 7:00 PM by popular demand. SiriusXM radio star Seth Rudetsky will join him again as pianist and host. For tickets, visit www.ptownarthouse.com or call 508-487-9222.
