by BWW News Desk - Jun 1, 2015

Announcing the program for Year TENN, Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival (TW Fest),†Co-founder and Curator David Kaplan†said,†"This year's festival celebrates what happened to Tennessee Williams in Provincetown during the last ten years: his plays got performed here. We've rethought his classics, and rethought the plays he wrote that had been ignored or dismissed. The mantra that Williams had lost his mojo was replaced with cheers at the world premieres in P'town of†The Remarkable Rooming-House of Madame LeMonde†(TW Fest 2009) and†The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore†(TW Fest 2013). So we're bringing those two productions back for our audiences to cheer in 2015, along with eight other hits and variations." (more...)
