PRESS RELEASE: Leslie Jordan to appear at the legendary CROWN & ANCHOR in PTown July 13-14

Leslie Jordan to appear at the legendary
Paramount Theatre
at the
CROWN & ANCHOR
in Provincetown, MA
July 13-14
Two Shows Only!

The Cape is about to experience it’s very own special “night at the races” as one of American pop culture’s most recognizable, enduring (and endearing) personalities rides back into town. In LJ, Back By Popular Demand, the diminutive, delightful Deep South dynamo saddles up for an evening of horse feathers hilarity with his new show.As always, he remains characteristically frank, charming, self–effacing and real. Jordan’s career has effectively redefined the standard for “celebrity”, and he remains the consummate professional. By staying the course, he realized his goals against all odds.

Leslie Jordan Show PosterLeslie Jordan has a track record that’s fairly astonishing, upon closer glance. His is one of those consistently recognizable faces in popular entertainment. Yet, often, you’re not quite sure where you know him from! His perpetually mobile “amazing race” towards stardom has provided one of the more unusual, yet impressive and varied career trajectories of the past few decades. His arrival in Hollywood back in 1982 (with $1500 sewn into his clothing by his steel magnolia Mother) was the starting gate. There’s notable irony in the fact that Jordan actually had a brief career as a jockey. He trots the audience around the track of his career; the highlights, the bumps in the road, the big breaks, the acclaim, the dangers of being type cast or stereotyped; the victory laps and the ever present concern about being put out to pasture by a youth obsessed culture and profession. By show’s end, audiences clearly realize they’re not listening to -nor seeing- just another “one trick pony”. Jordan’s antics, quirks, observations, and, most significantly, his ability to take it all in stride, puts him in the winner’s circle with each performance! The prestigious Emmy Award winner in 2006 for “WILL & GRACE”, Leslie Jordan has received rapturous reviews for his original stage plays (“MY TRIP DOWN THE PINK CARPET”, “STORIES I CAN’T TELL MAMA”, “FRUIT FLY”), supporting presence in one of Hollywood’s most prestigious, message-minded films of the last decade (“THE HELP”, 2012), and was singled out with great notices for his off-Broadway musical theatre debut in 2011 (“THE LUCKY GUY”). His defining role as “BROTHER BOY” in the cult film classic “SORDID LIVES” evolved into a well received prequel on the LOGO Channel. As the celebrated author and star of his own HBO Special (“Pink Carpet”); Leslie Jordan is consistently sought after as a Guest Star on every imaginable form of episodic, comic television (TV Land’s “THE EX’ES”, Fox’s “RAISING HOPE”, Disney Channel’s “SHAKE IT UP!” ABC’s “THE NEIGHBORS”). He has conquered the international stage scene with sold out runs in Mexico, Canada and the U.K., and remains an in-demand mainstay as a stage/tv/film performer, voice-over artist, fund raiser, spokesperson, out artist, equal rights activist and all around Southern Baptist celebutante.
The absurdity of it all and yet, his absolute willingness to prove “nay sayers” wrong by doing WHATEVER it takes to keep him out of the proverbial Glue Factory, Leslie Jordan IS…“LJ, Back By Popular Demand”!!!

Don’t miss the fun, when Jordan returns to play Provincetown’s popular Paramount Theatre at the legendary CROWN & ANCHOR. Located in the heart of Provincetown at 247 Commercial St., the show is set for a two (2) night exclusive engagement Monday July 13th and Tuesday, July 14th 2015.

Showtime is 8:00 P.M.

REVIEW: WELL-STRUNG at the ART HOUSE, Provincetown MA Aug 20, 2013

REVIEW: WELL-STRUNG at the ART HOUSE, Provincetown MA 7:30pm August 20, 2013

It has been said that the era of the boy band is well past its prime and while that well may be so the newest boy band to hit the scene completely breaks the mold.

WELL-STRUNG, a modern take on neoclassical music, now playing to packed houses at the Art House in Provincetown Massachusetts, may well
redefine what a boy band is.

51arUUnFT7L._SY300_ The strikingly handsome string quartet is made up of Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Trevor Wadleigh (viola) and Daniel Shevlin (cello). But don’t let their good looks, muscles and boyish smiles fool you. These young men are exceptionally talented, well rehearsed professionals, devoted to performing beautiful music.

WELL-STRUNG is brilliantly directed by Donna Drake who daringly defies tradition with a non-traditional String Quartet staging. The audience is treated to thrilling new musical arrangements by David Levinson who gives us imaginative and creative semi-classical versions of current pop songs woven seamlessly into the immortal classics. Combine that with stirring stories of each young man’s journey and how they got here, we almost feel gypped that the show runs a mere 55 minutes, it most definitely could have been at least 90.

These are some extremely talented young men, I urge you to rush out and see them as soon as you can. You won’t be sorry.

Please look in the VIDEO INTERVIEWS SECTION for an upcoming live interview!

Written by Donna Drake, Mark Cortale. Additional Material written by Jeffery Roberson. Arrangements by David Levinson. Additional arrangements by Daniel Shevlin & Christopher Marchant.

WELL-STRUNG is now extended thru September 12, 2013 at 7:30 PM
The Art House
214 Commercial
Provincetown, MA 02657
