The Provincetown Theater has a new leader.
The theater’s board of directors has announced the appointment of Obie Award winner David Drake as the new artistic director.
“Beginning in 2010, David Drake has built a wonderfully successful relationship with our theater community, staging shows for us as a freelance director,” board president David Wilson said in a statement. “And while we are grateful to our outgoing Artistic Director Tristan DiVincenzo for his terrific work the past three years, we are extremely excited by the fresh, caring, and creative vision that David is bringing to take us into the future.”
Drake is best known as the author and star of “The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me.” He said he’s excited to be taking over the celebrated playhouse.
“That Provincetown is internationally acknowledged as the birthplace of American drama, it is a great and humbling honor to be asked to lead the Provincetown Theater into the 21st century,” he said in a statement. “I love this community, this history, and this theater. . . . I look forward to shaping and shepherding a mission that revitalizes great plays for our community and our times, as well as taking real steps toward securing funding in order to begin nurturing and developing the great American plays of the future.”
The Provincetown Theater’s 2018 season opens May 17 with Drake directing a revival of Kaufman & Hart’s Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy “You Can’t Take It With You.” Drake, who teaches at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, had previously directed productions of “Our Town,” “The Weight of Water,” and “Slap & Tickle” at The Provincetown Theater.
