Provincetown has always been known as a wild sex, drugs & rock ‘n’ roll town where anything might—and did—happen. Why was Nobel Prize-winning playwright Eugene O’Neill arrested at gunpoint in the Atlantic House Bar? How did Divine, John Waters’ leading lady, cause so much trouble that locals wanted her banned from Provincetown? Where did Andy Warhol take Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, and why? Sylvia Plath and Anis Nin participated in some “bad” behavior here too. Provincetown’s own musician-writer-actor-badass Billy Hough (of Scream Along with Billy) will take you on this adult-only tour of Bohemian Provincetown at or by the locations where they happened. You’ll soon understand why Norman Mailer called his adopted hometown “The Wild West of the East.”
