The Art House is a nice venue for a small show, but stay away from the show '5 to 9' with Varla Jean. It was not funny and bordered on highly inappropriate. Despite political views, one shouldn't joke about presidential assassination.

Nasty bartenders, apathetic staff. They make show patrons queue up at end of bar, while rest of bar sits empty. This place needs a lesson in customer service..nuff said.

The Art House in Provincetown gets a amazing line-up of talent during the summer tourist season. I highly recommend the Varla Jean Merman show - "Bad Heroine". Bawdy, off-color, and very clever. The line-up also includes New York's best cabaret and Broadway talent.

Their summer season provides a broad range of musical and comedic entertainment with a large dose of camp. The theatres are by no means luxurious but they are well-staffed and the quick turnover of shows goes like clockwork.

We had the best time seeing Jinkx Monsoon's show at the Art House! It was easy to buy tickets online and everyone who worked there was so friendly. We made friends with people we waited in line with, which made the event even more awesome....More

I have to admit, 5 years ago when I first saw the ad for these 4 hunky-looking guys with their (string) instruments, I said 'let's go.' Little did I know what was awaiting us during that first show. The group manages to blend classical and...More

Everyone gets a good seat. The theatre is nothing special but the performances are packed full of broadway talent. Many times you are able to take a picture with one or more of the performers. I attended "Brown is the New Pink" and Jinnx Monsoon....More

With the exception of the miserable box office person (I'm sure it was just a bad night), we had a great time at the Art House. We saw Steve Grand, and Brown is the New Pink. Small, intimate space. Friendly ushers. Excellent to grab a...More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Return To Grey Gardens performance here. I don't believe the VIP seats are worth an extra $15 dollars since you get nothing extra except front row seats in a small theater that are not necessary !!!

We attended 5 diffferent shows at Art House; All but 1 (Grey Gardens) were fantastic. The theaters are intimate seating, so really no seat is a bad seat. Great entertainment and reasonably priced.
