We have a Memorial Day tradition here at Billy Masters Worldwidethat's when we start planning our summer travels. So now, without further ado, let me tell you what's happening in Provincetown. After a somewhat bleak 2020, I am pleased to report that Ptown is back! As of this writing, everything is reopening, shows are taking place inside and out, and dance clubs will be buzzing. However, people are not taking anything for granted. Rick Murray, proprietor of The Crown & Anchor, has gone above and beyond the call by ruling that entrance to "large-scale dance events … will REQUIRE proof of vaccination for entry." Bravo, Rick.
But what is Provincetown without shows? There are oodles of performers coming to town, hosted primarily by The Crown and Anchor (OnlyAtTheCrown.com), the Provincetown Art House (PtownArtHouse.com), the Pilgrim House (PilgraimHousePtown.com), the Post Office Café and Cabaret (PostOfficeCafe.net) and even the Provincetown Theater (ProvincetownTheater.org). You can check out each of these venues websites, or read my specific recommendations on BillyMasters.com .
At long last, we have news about the 2020 Tony Awards. The long-delayed celebration of Broadway has been scheduled to coincide with the re-opening of the Great White Way. Good news: You can watch the awards Sept. 26. Bad news: While some will be given out on the CBS telecast 9-11 p.m. ET, the lion's share of plaudits will be distributed 7-9 p.m. ET on Paramount+.
As you probably are aware, RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars is a spin-off of the original, RuPaul's Drag Race, on Logothat gay network nobody talks about anymore. After a few successful seasons, both shows moved to their sister network, the far more visible VH1. Now, "All Stars" is moving to the aforementioned Paramount+, where it will undoubtedly languish. Eventually, I suspect it'll return to Logoif that even exists anymore.
We had a dishy episode of "Billy Masters LIVE" last week. We talked at length with actor, comedian and rapper Daniel Franzesewho you may recall from the TV series Looking and the movie Mean Girls. He had a great story to share about being fired from hosting a male beauty pageant at a Christian college. We were joined by Frank DeCaro, who announced that his next book will be devoted to DISCO! And rounding out our panel was actor Jonny Beauchamp, who announced that he'll be appearing in the film The Way Out, written and directed by Barry Jay (of Barry's Bootcamp), and which will also star our pal Sherri Shepherd. Be sure to check out "Billy Masters LIVE" on our YouTube channel, Billy Masters TV or BillyMasters.com/TV.
One of the topics our panel tackled was news that Vanessa Redgrave will NOT appear in the Kevin Spacey comeback film, to be directed by her husband, Franco Nero. Lemme tell you the storylineNero plays a blind artist accused of molesting children, and Spacey plays the detective investigating the allegations. Hmmm.
A few weeks ago, we told you that John Barrowman regularly "flashed" cast and crew on the sets of Doctor Who and Torchwood. As a result, a video of him has been excised from the upcoming Doctor Who: Time Fracture stage show. And his judging gig on the UK show Dancing on Ice has been called into question.
Elsewhere in the UK, Tom Daley extolled the virtues of domesticityand the potential for his brood to expand: "I mean, we've always said we want a big family. Robbie [his son], do you want a brother or sister?" Robbie responded that he wants a brother AND a sister. Tom said there are no plans yet, but "Definitely after the Olympics at some point, I'm sure we will." In the meantime, look for Tom to chase that elusive Olympic gold in Tokyo.
Singer P!nk revealed a particularly uncomfortable moment during her bisexual dayssharing a girlfriend with her brother! She said, "My first girlfriendI was 13 and she left me for my brother! I was very confused by that, 'cause she kissed me first and that's gross."
Troye Sivan is doing his best to get eyeballs on the video for his new song, "You." He posted a still showing him wearing a see-through lace body stocking which displays his best assets. More intriguing than his pert posterior is the fact that the photo was liked by Shawn Mendes. Take that any way you'd likewhich I suspect is OK with Troye.
Our "Ask Billy" question comes from Toni in Dallas: "I was recently watching Green Lantern and think I remember you writing about the guy who plays Jack. Isn't he gay? He's really hot."
Mike Doyle is indeed gay. Aside from being a talented Juilliard-trained actor, he's also a filmmaker. In 2019, he directed the indie flick Almost Love, which starred openly gay actors Scott Evans and Augustus Prew playing a gay couple. (See our "Billy Masters LIVE" discussion about whether only gay actors should play gay roles). If you think he's hot, then we have a treat for you. When he appeared in Paul Rudnick's play The New Century at Lincoln Center, he was nudeand impressed audience members with his enormous talent. When I wrote about this in a 2008 column, I mentioned that he may have made New York theater history as the first actor to appear naked onstage while wearing a cock ring. Of course, we can back that up with footage and photos on BillyMasters.com .
When we're backing up on Mike Doyle, it's definitely time for me to relax and end another column. Before closing, I want to acknowledge the passing of circuit-party king Jeffrey Sanker. I worked with him on many events, and what stands out to me is how good he was at delegatingIF he trusted you. I was glad to be one of those people and remember him fondly. Don't forget to check out .BillyMasters.comthe site that always has fresh dish … usually including some kinda meat. If you have question, send it along to Billy@BillyMasters.com, and I promise to get back to you before I find out if underwear parties are returning to Ptown (fingers crossed). So, until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
