The Art House 2021 season will kick-off in Provincetown with a long-awaited double dose: first with hilarity from Emmy-winning comedian Judy Gold returning for a season-long sit-down with her hilarious stand-up comedy show from June 25 - Sept 1. And secondly with high notes, as the Broadway @ The Art House series brings Sierra Boggess, Broadway's original Ariel in The Little Mermaid and a frequent Christine Daaé in Phantom of the Opera and its sequel Love Never Dies, on July 2 & 3 with Seth Rudetsky as pianist & host.
