Traffic is telling me that we’re getting busier here on our little peninsula. This week we have several great plays opening, and some wonderful music and a few other things you might want to head out for. Let’s get to it!

Oh! Don’t forget it’s Father’s Day on Sunday. So make sure you factor Dad into your plans. Take him to see some music, a play, and maybe throw in some cake.  Whatever you decide to do for your dad, make sure to keep it local. There’s so many fantastic local stores and restaurants, the best gift is to keep your dollars local.


This week heralds the season opening of the Harbor Stage Company in Wellfleet. If you’ve never made it out to this small gem of a theater, you owe it to yourself to take a trip out to Wellfleet to see at least one production at this actor-run theater. Their first offering this season is a classic—Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House.”  The play is directed by Robert Kropf, and features, Robin Bloodworth, Jonathan Fielding, Robert Kropf, Stacy Fischer and Brenda Withers. This is truly one of my favorite theaters on the Cape, and I will be there to see what this incredibly talented team does this season. The play will be running June 18 through July 11. You can get tickets online at

A very innovative staging of “Moby Dick” is opening this week as well at WHAT (Wellfleet Harbor Actor’s Theater). Based on the Herman Melville novel, this adaptation was written by James Armstrong, and directed by Chris Ostrom. This ambitious endeavor features five actors and a narrator who tell the story of the adventure of the Pequod. The play is running June 20, through July 18.

Also this weekend at Cotuit Center for the Arts is “Love is Blind: Music Inspired by Amy Winehouse,” featuring the incredibly talented Emily Wade Adams. Amy Winehouse had an amazing and tragically short career, but left a treasure trove of music. Her songs ranged from soul to R&B, jazz, with some hip hop thrown in. Emily Wade Adams, a Cape native, is a powerhouse talent, and this will be a great run. The show is running through the weekend, so get your tickets asap. Go to

The historic Cape Playhouse is opening its season with “The Velocity of Autumn” written by Eric Coble, and directed by Skip Greer. This 2014 Broadway comedy-drama, is about the battle between a 79-year-old woman who doesn’t want to leave her Brooklyn home, and her family who thinks it’s time. To maintain her independence, she has barricaded herself in her apartment with a cache of molotov cocktails. The play stars Beth Fowler, two-time Tony nominee, and star of the hit Netflix series, “Orange is the New Black.” The play will be running through June 27. For tickets and times go to


Just a quick mention again of Brooklyn-based band San Fermin who will be at Cape Cinema on Saturday night—there are some tickets left. This band looks to be fantastic, and I’m sad I cannot go. For tickets go to

The Cape Cod Melody Tent is open for the season, and this Friday night, June 19, Lucinda Williams is playing. Tickets are available at Doors open at 7, show is at 8.

Or, if classic rock is more your style, the Steve Miller Band will be at theTent on Sunday night. Truly something for everyone!

Ice Skating



We’re very lucky to have the 8th Annual US Figure Skating Theater National Theater on Ice Competition happening right here from this Thursday through Sunday. It’s happening at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center. For a complete rundown on the schedule click here. This will be great fun for the entire family.

Labyrinth Walk

I happen to think labyrinth walks are very cool, and relaxing. In Chatham every Monday at 5:30 p.m. there’s a walk at Chase Park you can take. It’s non-denominational, nothing religious, but spiritual and relaxing nonetheless. The park is located at 880 Main Street, Chatham.


This weekend is the Provincetown Film Festival, and it’s going to be pretty spectacular. Not only will there be lots of wonderful films, but there’s also going to be a couple of celebrity appearances as well. Actor Jennifer Coolidge, star of films including “Best in Show,” will be in town to receive an award, as will comedian Bobcat Goldthwait. There will be lots of films being shown all weekend, and panels as well. For the complete schedule go to
