“The Art House - Provincetown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Great venue to see live acts however, their website can be a bit frustrating. The frustration lies in the fact that their website is not updated as often as I would like, only because I can't wait to find out which acts will be in Provincetown for the current Summer season. If you were to visit their website today (3/25/13) you will still see the acts booked for Summer 2012. Patience, please, as it has been my experience that the website becomes updated in early May. I consider this venue a great place to see live acts because the showcases are relatively small (layout is pretty narrow but long) so, any seat "in the back" should still provide you ample viewing of the act you've paid to see, but I do highly recommend you upgrade your tickets to VIP status. This can usually be accomplished for a nominal additional fee (about $10 per ticket) and, to me, the upgrade is worth the price. This upgrade affords you the ability to stand on a separate VIP ticket-holders line that allows you in first. Because of the exit areas in the VIP section, you might even get to meet your performer as they, too, exit the facility. This was my experience last Summer after a Judy Gold performance. She chatted with fans upon her exit from the building. "Brown Paper Tickets" actually facilitates the purchase of tickets at the Art House, so don't be alarmed when you see the name and, if you need to utilize their customer service team, they are very responsive and very helpful.

“nice place to see a show”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

If you're lucky enough to have someone decent performing at the Art House in Provincetown when you go visit, it's a nice little theater to watch a show in. The seats are comfortable and the staff friendly. Last few years I've gone, there was nothing there that interested me, however, there were several years that there was, and I enjoyed the Art House very much during those shows.

“Super Talented Performers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Went to the Art House for the first time this year. The box office sales person was excellent. Walked over and found him on the phone with a very annoying guest. (I could tell by the duplicate answers he was giving) He kept calm and was very nice to them.

Purchased two tickets to see "Well Strung" - V.I.P. section and the show was fantastic!!!

V.I.P. Tickets - seats in first 4 rows -
General Tickets - seats starting 5th row and back.
No need to purchase V.I.P. unless going with a large group of people you want to keep together.

Theatre is small and pretty much all seats would have been great.

Sound quality was excellent.

Had a drink at the bar - bartender was just okay - made an awesome drink but wasn't too friendly. Seemed rather annoyed more than anything else - but the drink quality made up for it.

WELL STRUNG was an unreal show and everyone MUST SEE IT!!

“Saw Margaret Chow ....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Was pretty excited to get an opportunity to see Margaret Cho in August ... Tickets were expensive considering that the show lasted only about an hour ... Place was also not very clean ...

“Great shows!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Laughs galore. Shows of all types. Never laughed so much. Saw two shows, both were excellent! Comfortable small theatre. If you want better seats upgrade for five to ten dollars. It is worth it!
