If you’re tired of the same-old, same-old concert theater scene, it might be time to experience something truly unique: a drag show in Provincetown! Renowned for its diversity and acceptance, Provincetown is a haven for the LGBT community. So why not diversify your entertainment experiences and check out a drag show in Provincetown on your visit? You don’t have to be LGBT to enjoy a good time!
What You Need to Know about Drag Shows
As you might imagine, this will not be a buttoned-up, reserved theater experience. Get ready for some serious flair, fun, and the likelihood of being called out by your lovely high-heeled entertainer. If you’d rather observe than participate, sit in the back and don’t raise your hand for anything. If you want in on the fun (and you should!), sit close to the front, cheer loudly, and be complimentary. And definitely bring some cash for tipping the queen (or king)!
