Provincetown

How did a sleepy New England fishing village become a gay mecca? In this dynamic history, Karen Christel Krahulik explains why Provincetown, Massachusetts—alternately known as “Land’s End,” “Cape-tip,” “Cape-end,” and, to some, “Queersville, U.S.A”—has meant many things to many people.
Provincetown tells the story of this beguiling coastal town, from its early history as a mid-nineteenth century colonial village to its current stature as a bustling gay tourist destination. It details the many cultures and groups—Yankee artists, Portuguese fishermen, tourists—that have comprised and influenced Provincetown, and explains how all of them, in conjunction with larger economic and political forces, come together to create a gay and lesbian mecca.
Through personal stories and historical accounts, Provincetown reveals the fascinating features that have made Provincetown such a textured and colorful destination: its fame as the landfall of the Mayflower Pilgrims, charm as an eccentric artists’ colony, and allure as a Dionysian playground. It also hints at one of Provincetown’s most dramatic economic changes: its turn from fishing village to resort town. From a history of fishing economies to a history of tourism, Provincetown, in the end, is as eclectic and vibrant as the city itself.

Karen Christel Krahulik is Senior Associate Dean for International Programs and Experiential Learning at Princeton University.

Leave your “mark” in historic Provincetown

Purchase a Paver at the foot of MacMillan Pier

Over the past 30 years we have sustained the building with minor repair work, but today our 106 year old Chamber Building is in need of some significant work. We feel that our “Lady” should have a complete “Facelift” rather than just nips and tucks. Please consider purchasing a paver with your name, business name, or as a dedication in honor of someone special or in memory of a loved one. Your paver will be viewed by thousands of visitors for years to come! Click here for more information about our Paver Project.

Create an isolated LAN for use with HamWAN

Assign an IP address to your modem's LAN port

Configure NAT (Network Address Translation)

Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to your modem and the other to the PoE injector (the injector included with the Metal feeds power to the socket side of the adapter). Plug the injector directly into your PC, or into a switch for use with multiple PCs. The modem will assign IP addresses to connected PCs and route their packets to HamWAN.


Provincetown PCS-1378 - History

NEW WORKS PROVINCETOWN is a developmental theatre lab founded by Producer MARK CORTALE to create and develop new theatrical works. Our first commission for the 2020/21 season is a full length musical entitled The Last Diva with book by JONATHAN TOLINS (Buyer & Cellar), music by SCOTT FRANKEL (Grey Gardens, War Paint) and lyrics by MICHAEL KORIE (Grey Gardens, War Paint). Our second commission is a full length play by KEVIN POWELL (The Education of Kevin Powell: A Boy’s Journey into Manhood), developed with and directed by OLIVER BUTLER (What the Constitution Means to Me). Our final commission for the 2020/21 season is a full length musical titled Maiden Voyage by composer CARMEL DEAN (Renascence, Well-Behaved Women) and lyricist/playwright MINDI DICKSTEIN (Little Women, Toy Story - The Musical and Benny & Joon – The Musical). These three commissions are a manifestation of New Works Provincetown’s focus on theatrical works created by voices of diversified race, ethnicity and gender. Each work will be developed in Provincetown with writing sessions and workshops during the 2020/21 season.

Mark Cortale, who serves as Producing Artistic Director of The Art House recently announced an auspicious new partnership behind New Works Provincetown’s first three major commissions: JONATHAN MURRAY and HARVEY REESE’s Wild Oak Media. Mr. Murray, as half of television’s legendary Bunim/Murray Productions, is widely credited for inventing the modern reality television genre, including creating and/or executive producing the groundbreaking shows The Real World, Road Rules, The Challenge,The Simple Life, Making the Band, Project Runway, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and the Emmy award winning Born This Way, among others. Together with his partner, Harvey Reese, they have been longtime supporters and investors in theater, including Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays and Motherhood Out Loud.

Commenting on the new venture, Mr. Cortale stated: "During these unprecedented circumstances that have caused all live performances to be postponed or cancelled, I believe it is the right time to broaden my focus to the creation and development of new works for the American theatre. I'm excited to collaborate with producers Jon Murray and Harvey Reese to move forward with New Works Provincetown this season, and highlight the works of an incredible, diverse scope of artists. We're greatly inspired by Provincetown's rich history where incredible playwrights like Eugene O'Neill, Susan Glaspell, and Tennessee Williams came to work and we want to do everything possible to foster that tradition."

New Works Provincetown began its inaugural season this past October with Edmund Bagnell's one man show He Plays The Violin. Bagnell, the first violinist and vocalist of the critically acclaimed singing string quartet Well-Strung co-wrote the show with director Michael Schiralli. He Plays The Violin, conceived by Mark Cortale and music directed by Matthew Aument also includes an original song by composer Scott Frankel. The show premiered at The Art House in early November followed by an immediate New York debut at 54 Below. A national tour of the show and subsequent summer run at The Art House have been postponed to 2021.

Gay and Lesbian History of Provincetown

It is no coincidence that for more than 50 years, the gay and lesbian community returns every summer to Provincetown. The recent development/tourism development of Provincetown owes much to this community here where one can find a place to feel at home.

The Choice of Culture

The town started to promote itself as a tourist destination to aid the economy after the storm of 1898, which adversely affected the fishing community. Artists, with their bohemian style, were some of the first visitors of Provincetown. Residents and visitors alike are attracted by the incredible natural beauty and the particular light or “aura”. Little by little this has become an eclectic population who are the more and more numerous to visit this community.

The 1920’s and ‘30’s were when the presence of gays and lesbians increased over that of artists, writers, dramatists, poets, romantics, and journalists. These new arrivers found inspiration in the beauty of this town with its avant-garde freedom. They played a role in the development of the artistic colony here, and they participated in the development of modern American theater. The ability to experiment with various art forms without fear of judgment begot an artistic environment, prosperous, after a city that saw the birth of the first school of American art and modern American theater. Several artists had gay friends. It was a feeling of acceptance in this booming art colony that attracted more and more tourists curious to visit this unconventional town at the tip of Cape Cod. It was not a long time before Provincetown became an ideal space to pass the months of summer for gays and lesbians, completely seduced by the feeling of acceptance and artistic energy. Gradually the habitants become “year-rounders”, investing in buying Inns and “Bed and Breakfasts”, creating local businesses and now being an integral part of the local economic fabric.

Recent History

The 1970’s were a catalyst in making Provincetown even more of a mecca for gay and lesbian festivals and tourism than ever. Here, everyone can be his or herself without fear of being disapproved by others.

‘American Horror Story’ begins two weeks of shooting in Provincetown

After numerous delays, the FX anthology series “American Horror Story” kicked off production in Provincetown on Monday.

Season 10 of Ryan Murphy’s series, which is filming under the code name “Pilgrim,” was originally supposed to be shot in Provincetown last spring but was rescheduled because of the coronavirus.

According to Provincetown director of tourism Anthony Fuccillo, filming is scheduled to wrap on March 12.

In a filming agreement reviewed by the Globe, there are 19 locations planned for use in the production, including Pilgrim Monument, Winthrop Street Cemetery, Mews Restaurant, and Racing Beach, with multiple shoots set to take place on Commercial Street.

“We think it’s great exposure for the town,” Fuccillo said. “It’s good for the film industry to have a town like ours to utilize. It will bring additional business for the town, and is good for economic development, especially this time of year.”

Murphy and series co-creator Brad Falchuk, a Newton native, frequently reuse actors in various seasons of “AHS,” and season 10 will be no different.

Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angelica Ross, Leslie Grossman, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Lily Rabe, Adina Porter, and Finn Wittrock are all confirmed to be returning for season 10. Cast members new to the show this season include Macaulay Culkin, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, and Spencer Novich.

Primary production for the show is based in Los Angeles, and with only two weeks of shooting taking place in Provincetown, there’s no guarantee that all of the show’s large cast will film scenes in Massachusetts.

Wittrock, a Lenox native, was spotted filming in Provincetown Monday morning. Rabe is already in Massachusetts, filming George Clooney’s new movie “The Tender Bar.”

While “AHS” is completely fictional, the series has a history of alluding to real-life horror stories with its characters and plot lines. As a result, fans have speculated that the location of Provincetown means that Murphy may draw on some of the Cape’s more infamous crimes, including The Lady of the Dunes — the unsolved mystery of a woman who washed ashore on Race Point Beach in 1974 — and Provincetown serial killer Tony Costa, who dismembered multiple women on the Cape in the late 1960s.

Season 10 of “American Horror Story” is expected to debut on FX sometime in 2022.
