    Free Admission

    For those of you unfamiliar with Joe’s Twin Villa, the Osterville hotspot was owned and operated by generations of Joe Diggs’ family (it was named after his grandfather). Although it is now closed, it will long be remembered by its many Cape regulars for its down-home atmosphere, food, drink, and music.

    On August 3rd, you can enjoy the spirit of this Cape landmark through a great lineup of bands, singers, dancing and food highlighted by Joe’s exciting artwork. In powerful mixed media works that combine action painting, photography, graffiti and collage, Diggs’ art explores what it means to be a black man in America. “To me painting is magic,” he writes on his website. “The process of making art has helped me emotionally by providing a physical escape. Realizing the importance of celebrating the positive in life, my latest works reflect the more romantic aspect of life of an African American man in his 50s pursuing his dreams”.

    Joe will emcee a great lineup of musical guests from around the Cape that will get you on your feet! And don’t worry about dinner, because great, free food will be available.

    Celebration Schedule:

    2-6pm:
    – Joe Diggs art on display
    – Music by DJ’s who appeared at Joe’s Twin Villa

    4-6 pm:
    – Summertime food favorites served (beverages available for purchase)

    6:30-11pm

    The Upper Gallery will display a juried exhibition, ‘Proud 2 Be American’, featuring the works of local artists as selected by jurors Joe Diggs and Mara Williams, Curator of the Brattleboro Museum, Battleboro, VT.

    Cotuit Center for the Arts is also excited to present “Voices of Cotuit”, a new program bringing the voices of our artists to our award winning gallery. Patrons will be able to use their smart phones to listen to recordings of current exhibitors discussing the history and inspiration behind their artwork. For this latest exhibit, Joe Diggs shares stories of the legacy of Joe’s Twin Villa, and of his previous exhibitions that led to this current series.

  • Dark Night Cabaret at Cotuit Center for the Arts
    7:30 PM-10:00 PM
    08/04/2019-08/27/2019

    Cotuit Center for the Arts presents “Dark Night Cabaret” August 4 through 27. Performances are Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights at 7:30 PM in the Black Box Theater.

    “In theater, ‘dark night’ is a night on which there are no performances and the theater is closed,” said “Dark Night Cabaret” director Holly Erin McCarthy. “These are often the only nights off for performers.

    “But not all performers want to stay home and rest on their nights off. I have put together a cast of incredibly busy—and incredibly talented and dynamic—working performers who have decided to spend their nights off—their Dark Nights—entertaining an intimate audience at Cotuit Center for the Arts.”

    The cast features a rotating group of performers, three per night, including Anthony Teixeira, Jared Hagan, and other favorite Cape singers.

    “The evening will be casual and fun and a rare chance to spend time with these singers as themselves, no frills, no characters, no script…no holding back,” said McCarthy. “They will be candid and carefree as they chat with each other and the audience, tell stories and sing about 80 minutes of beautiful music. Do plan to attend more than once to see a different combination of dark night performers.”

    There will be snacks and a cash bar, and patrons will have the chance to mingle and chat with the performers themselves, during and after the show.

    Tickets are $20, $15 for members. Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit. For more information, visit artsonthecape.org or call 508-428-0669.

  • “Lulu + Mona vs. The Minotaur” at Cotuit Center for the Arts
    10:00 AM-12:30 PM
    08/09/2019-08/18/2019

    The Theater Under the Stairs presents “Lulu + Mona vs. The Minotaur,” an original play by Holly Erin McCarthy, at the Black Box Theater at Cotuit Center for the Arts on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 9 to 11 and August 16 to 18. Performances are 10 AM and 12:30 PM on Friday and Saturday, and 10 AM on Sunday.

    A brand new musical by the creators of “Lulu’s Lemonade Stand,” “Lulu and Mona vs. The Minotaur” is a thrilling new adventure-comedy for the whole family.

    A mysterious prophecy and a missing friend, an alarming labyrinth with no obvious end. Can Mona and Lulu beat the clock and best the beast? Or will their brave rescue attempt be foiled by carnivorous crabs and confusing clues? Find out this summer!

    The new tale brings together Lulu (Celia Cota) from “Lulu’s Lemonade Stand” and Mona (Nora Canaday) from “The Kind of True Story of Mona Coyote.” “Lulu” was based on Homer’s “The Odyssey,” and “Mona” was based on Miguel de Cervantes’ classic tale “Don Quixote.”

    The 10 person ensemble includes Cota and Canaday along with six other young actors, performing alongside Cotuit favorites, Anthony Teixeira and Hannah Carrita.

    “’Lulu’s Lemonade Stand’ is anything but straightforward; it is unpredictable, swashbuckling, zany, magical, colorful, richly developed and loaded with fun for the whole family,” wrote Ellen Petry Whalen on wickedlocal.com, when the show, which premiered in 2013, was presented in 2017.

    “We are very excited about the show and the cast,” said McCarthy. “It is thrilling, silly, and laugh-out-loud funny for kids and their parents. The cast is always ready to try new things. It’s so rewarding to see them make these characters their own.”

    The book and lyrics are by McCarthy. Music is by McCarthy, with arrangements by Henry Buck. Sander Goldman created the show poster. Music Direction is by Anthony Teixeira. Choreography is by Hannah Carrita.

    Tickets are $12. Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit. For more information, visit artsonthecape.org or theaterunderthestairs.weebly.com or call 508-428-0669. Tickets are $12.

  • “Well-Strung” Singing String Quartet at Cotuit Center for the Arts
    7:30 PM-10:00 PM
    08/12/2019

    Cotuit Center for the Arts and Mark Cortale presents Well-Strung, the singing string quartet, on Monday, August 12, at 7:30 PM.

    Returning for their third performance at the Center, Well-Strung is a highly acclaimed string quartet with a modern twist, “brilliantly fusing pop and classical music from Madonna to Beethoven,” as the New York Times has written. Featuring Edmund Bagnell on first violin, Christopher Marchant on second violin, Daniel Shevlin on cello, and Trevor Wadleigh on viola, Well-Strung mixes Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Vivaldi with pop hits by such stars as Adele, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears, and others.

    All four members of Well-Strung are accomplished classical and musical theater musicians with a love for pop music and an instinctive ability to meld the two genres. With light hearts and considerable charm—they have a reputation as heart throbs—they provide a uniquely engaging experience.

    Christopher Marchant and producer Mark Cortale founded the group in 2012 in Provincetown, after Marchant realized his love for both “high and low art.”

    “Some people have a very serious attitude [when it comes to classical music], about protecting an ancient art, whereas we can just have fun doing it,” Wadleigh told Huffington Post in a 2013 interview. Their goal is to make classical music more accessible and to give pop music a new dimension, as they mix their music with stories and anecdotes.

    The quartet has performed throughout the US and have gained international attention, performing at the Vatican and at a Gala for President Obama. Their viral music video “Chelsea’s Mom” led to a special requested performance for Hillary Clinton herself.

    They have also performed with artists such as Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald, and Deborah Voigt, and they were the opening act for Joe Jonas and his band DNCE at Pride Toronto. They have performed twice with the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus and twice with the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus at Town Hall in Manhattan. The group has received critical acclaim at New York’s prestigious Feinstein’s/54 Below and at numerous other venues from the House of Blues in New Orleans to the Leicester Square Theatre in London.

    Ticket are $55, $50 for balcony seating. There is a $5 discount for members.

  • Benefit performance of “Rose” at Cotuit Center for the Arts
    7:30 PM-8:00 PM
    08/14/2019

    After a sold out run in April, Cotuit Center for the Arts is proud to present a special one-night only performance of “Rose,” a one-woman play by Laurence Leamer, Wednesday, August 14 at 7:30 PM on the Main Stage. Proceeds benefit arts programming at the Center.

    Set in 1969 in the parlor of the Kennedys’ Hyannis Port compound a week after Teddy’s fateful error on a bridge at Chappaquiddick, “Rose” is the story of the triumphs and sorrows of Rose Fitzpatrick Kennedy, her family, her husband, and her nine children, as told by the matriarch herself.

    “Ruled by the dictates of her father, her husband, and the priests of the Catholic Church, Rose learned early on to live by a code of submission and self-suppression,” wrote the Chicago Sun-Times. Showbiz Chicago noted, “The writing is quite candid and brutally real.”

    Both stoic and fragile, reserved and revealing, Rose, played by Linda Monchik, recalls the remarkable accomplishments and the incredible losses of the Kennedy family, reflects on the Camelot years and more difficult times, and finds new understanding of the choices she made as well as those made by her husband and children.

    “Rose Kennedy was the daughter of the first Irish American mayor of Boston, ‘Honey Fritz,’ and the mother of three sons who served in Washington at the same time: the president of the United States, the attorney general, and the junior senator from Massachusetts,” said Monchik, who has done considerable research for the part.

    “Rose was an iconic 20th century woman who prevailed, despite a multitude of personal tragedies, keeping her family together, and inspiring them to greatness,” said Monchik. “She wrote that her life was based on faith, ‘A path from which I never wander,’ and, when asked what made her family different, she responded, ‘We get up and go.’ She was indomitable.”

    Monchik has performed in numerous theatrical productions on the Cape, in Boston, Providence, and on the South Coast, including the 2017 performance of “Rose,“ directed by Joan Edstrom at the Woods Hole Theater Company and Falmouth Museums on the Green. She has appeared in several Cotuit Center for the Arts productions, including “Thirty-Three Variations,” “The Beauty Queen of Leenane,” “Steel Magnolias,” “The Belle of Amherst,” the one-woman show about Emily Dickinson, and “The Weight of Silence.”

    Leamer, an accomplished journalist and author, has written extensively about the Kennedys. He based his play on 40 hours of audio interviews with Rose Kennedy conducted by Robert Coughlan, the ghost writer of her 1974 memoir.

    Tickets are $50, $45 for seniors, $40 for members. Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit. For more information, visit www.artsonthecape.org or call 508-428-0669.

  • Suede to Perform Two Concerts at Cotuit Center for the Arts
    7:30 PM-9:00 PM
    08/23/2019-08/24/2019

    Back by popular demand for two nights because tickets for her show sell out so quickly, internationally acclaimed pop/jazz/blues entertainer Suede will perform at Cotuit Center for the Arts on Friday, August 23, and Saturday, August 24, at 7:30 PM.

    The New York Times described Suede as “like Adele meets Diana Krall meets Bette Middler—sassy, smooth, and intoxicating,” noting that she provided “a spectacular evening of song and style. Voices like hers come along maybe once in a generation.” The Boston Globe called her “Wicked exciting,” and Steppin’ Out Arts, NY, wrote “A great voice, even better enthusiasm, almost giddy delight at entertaining audiences, that if bottled would make every anti-depressant on the market obsolete.”

    Suede, a longtime Cape Cod favorite, has performed at sold-out shows at world-renowned clubs like NYC’s famous Birdland, Boston’s Scullers Jazz Club, San Francisco’s Feinstein’s, Washington DC’s Kennedy Center, and many others. She has done multiple national and international tours, including helping to raise $45,000 in one night for a free clinic outside Washington, DC, and performing as Joan Rivers’ opening act, commanding standing ovations from Joan’s audiences.

    Suede plays piano, trumpet, and guitar, but voice is her first instrument and her powerful charismatic presence and love of entertaining are what truly make her stand out. She sings everything from originals written for her by a circle of talented contemporary writers to intimate ballads, jazz standards, and “bring-down-the-house” belted-out blues—all with her own signature blend of warmth, wit, and musical artistry.

    Suede will be joined for these concerts by her versatile New England trio: Freddie Boyle on piano, Rich Hill on bass, and Steve Langone on drums.

    Tickets are $45, $35 for balcony seating. There is a $5 discount for members and a $2 discount for seniors and veterans. For tickets, and more information, visit www.artsonthecape.org, or call 508-428-0669. Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit.

  • Marilyn Maye and Billy Stritch at Cotuit Center for the Arts
    7:30 PM-9:00 PM
    08/27/2019

    Cotuit Center for the Arts and Mark Cortale present Marilyn Maye with Billy Stritch at the piano on Tuesday, August 27, at 7:30 PM.

    The legendary Marilyn Maye is a singer, actress, director, arranger, educator, and a Grammy-nominated recording artist who receives rave reviews everywhere she goes. She appeared 76 times on the Tonight Show, more than any other entertainer. After one of her show-stopping appearances, Carson turned to the audience and said, “And that, young singers, is how it’s done.”

    Rex Reed wrote, “Her show is not to be missed… It’s a master class in singing, conducted by a polished pro who majored in unforgettable.”

    Chuck Lavazzi of KDHX wrote of a recent St. Louis performance of Broadway and American Songbook numbers, “Maye used her commanding performance presence and vocal virtuosity to immediately connect with the orchestra. . . . Her boundless energy, good humor, and obvious delight in her material are, in short, irresistible.”

    Now 91, Maye still maintains a demanding performance schedule at venues such as the Metropolitan Room, Birdland, Town Hall, the 92nd Street Y, Theater, and Lincoln Center in New York and at other locations across the country, often performing to standing-room only audiences. The New York Times wrote: “A phenomenal demonstration of one woman’s stamina and musical intelligence! This ageless dynamo has earned a singular place in New York’s cabaret world.”

    Best known for her cabaret singing, Maye flows easily from ballads to swing to jazz waltz, often grouping songs into meaningful medleys, and offering reflections on her richly lived life. A review of her “90 at Last!” show at 54 Below noted, “The emotional tide that sweeps through the audience is ever present in this unique interpreter of song, as she vocally flows up, down, and around, bringing life to lyrics.”

    Maye began her professional singing career at the age of 9 by winning a 13-week appearance on radio station WIBW in Topeka, Kansas, and she has been singing ever since. She began emceeing variety shows at 11 and had her own radio program at 15. During her eleven-year engagement at the Colony in Kansas City, she was discovered by Steve Allen, who was the first to present her to a national television audience.

    That led to an RCA recording contract. She has released seven albums and 34 singles, including the first hit recordings of “Cabaret” and “Step to the Rear.” “The Lamp is Low,” recorded with a full orchestra, is considered a classic. The Arts Council of the Smithsonian Institution selected one of her recordings, “Too Late Now,” for the Smithsonian-produced album of the 110 Best American Compositions of the Twentieth Century.

    Her many symphony concert appearances include the Florida Symphony, The Philly Pops, The Phoenix Symphony, The Kansas City Symphony, The Omaha Symphony, The Pasadena Symphony, and two appearances with the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall for tributes to Stephen Sondheim and Frank Loesser.

    Ticket are $60, $40 for balcony seating. There is a $5 discount for members and a $2 discount for seniors and veterans.

Winners of the Las vegas Burlesque Festival in 2015, They also performed at The Burlesque Hall of Fame’s “Movers, Shakers and Innovators” showcase 2016. The Belles bring a variety of talents: singing, dancing, wit, sass, and of course seduction to the stage. They will have you laughing, lusting, and longing for more!

    Queens of the corset, sirens of the stage, dolls of the dance floor! WE ARE YOUR VILLAGE VAUDEVILLE.

    Burlesque is a diverse form of entertainment pulling theatrical, dance, and sketch comedy elements from many historical eras together to provide a creative spin on society’s traditional, and often oppressive, stereotypes of women. While the art of burlesque includes acts of a sexual nature, the goal of performing these expressions is never intended to be offensive of harmful to others, but rather empowering, particularly to women, by embracing the existence of female sexuality in light of differing body types, genders, race and ethnicity, upbringings, and so on. Our troupe stands in firm belief that this beautiful art form is relevant in its mission and provides important empowerment to our friends, family, local community and Beyond!
