Audra McDonald, Chita Rivera, Stephanie J. Block & More Announced for P-Town Art House Summer 2022

Mark Cortale, Producing Artistic Director of Provincetown's Art House Theatre, has announced his largest and most ambitious lineup of music and comedy superstars for this summer's 2022 season. He will also add to the mix a first-ever "Virtuoso" series spotlighting six of the solo classical reps brightest stars. Summer 2022 marks Mr. Cortale's eleventh season leading the storied Art House. Taking center stage again is the internationally acclaimed Broadway @ series, first launched here by Cortale in 2011 with Sirius XM radio star Seth Rudetsky, and now in more than a dozen major venues worldwide. For Tickets and information, visit www.ptownarthouse.com or call 800-838-3006.

The 2022 season will kick-off Memorial Day Weekend with three perennial P-Town favorites. First and fittingly, local music favorite Zoë Lewis will open The Art House with her new mini musical A Slice of PTown: "30 years of songs and stories inspired by one incredible little spit of land" on May 27 & 28, joined by Parker Ousley on cello and Roxanne Layton on recorder. Indie Rock star Melissa Ferrick returns for her eleventh Art House season on May 28 for one show only. Historic six-time Tony Award Winner Audra McDonald, star of Broadway's The Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, Carousel, Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, and HBO's The Gilded Age, will open the Town Hall series on May 29 with Seth Rudetsky as music director and host.

Summer 2022's Town Hall series, produced by Cortale at Provincetown's largest venue, will once again raise funds for Sandy Hook Promise and will also notably be the landing site for a stop on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 6 champion Bianca Del Rio's Unsanitized World Tour, on July 3, for one night only. She will be followed by Broadway star Stephanie J. Block, Tony Award winner for her title role in The Cher Show, and star of Falsettos and The Mystery of Edwin Drood, making her Town Hall debut on July 10 with Seth Rudetsky as music director and host.

Sasha Velour, RuPaul's Drag Race Season 9 champion will make her Provincetown debut over Carnival Weekend, performing the greatest hits of her illustrious career, for one night only on August 14 at Town Hall. Grammy Award winning, platinum selling recording stars, Indigo Girls will perform at Town Hall, on August 21 for one show only. And surging star Jessica Vosk, who starred most recently as Elphaba in Wicked on Broadway, and made her critically acclaimed sold-out Carnegie Hall debut this winter, which featured special guest Kristin Chenoweth, makes her triumphant return to P-Town on September 4 with Seth Rudetsky as music director and host.

Provincetown has been named America's Best Beach Town, celebrated as the Best Gay Resort in America, and for over a century many of the nation's greatest artists have called P-Town home. In that tradition of cutting-edge artistry, for this eleventh season, Cortale's celebrated Broadway @ The Art House series will once again be home to an array of the New York stage's greatest stars: Rachel Bay Jones, Tony Award Winner for Broadway's smash hit Dear Evan Hansen and Star of Pippin returns to kick-off the summer 2022 series season on June 24 & 25, with Seth Rudetsky as music director and host.

Tony nominee Melissa Errico, star of Amour, My Fair Lady, and Passion returns to The Art House this summer in the critically acclaimed No One Is Alone: Melissa Errico Remembers Stephen Sondheim on July 22 & 23, with Tedd Firth at the piano. The Broadway star brings her unique expressive gifts, and the immaculate vocal style that Sondheim loved, all to bear in a concert of the greatest songs of the greatest Broadway composer of his time. Donna McKechnie, Tony Award winner for her performance as Cassie in the original company of A Chorus Line, is regarded internationally as one of Broadway's foremost singing and dancing leading ladies. She has also starred in How To Succeed..., Promises-Promises, Company, and On The Town... and makes her anticipated Broadway @ The Art House debut on July 30 & 31, with Seth Rudetsky as music director and host.

Nicolas King - who the New York Times calls a "polished crooner" who takes pop and jazz and infuses his Broadway roots in a swinging concert that "makes waves faster than a raging tsunami!" (Theater Scene) - returns on September 3, with Tedd Firth at the piano, Daniel Glass on drums and Steve Doyle on bass. Daniel Shevlin, star cellist of Well-Strung joins the Broadway series with his solo star-turn Versatile, on September 9 & 10, featuring Lance Horne at the piano.
