One response to “Provincetown 2018 summer entertainment

  1. I hope the Ptown Chamber of Commerce sends you flowers for your wonderful listing. It is very helpful for navigating the many entertainment options there.

    I find it hilarious that Sandra Bernhard is listed under drag shows

    I love Ptown – one of my favorite places on the planet – and I love your blog
