Miss Magnolia Beaumont goes to Provincetown
Cheryl King Productions is proud to announce that Miss Magnolia Beaumont Goes to Provincetown, a
solo play written and performed by Joe Hutcheson, and recent participant in the New York International
Fringe Festival, will have four performances at the brand new Stage Left Studio at 214 W. 30th St, 6th
floor, in Chelsea.
Miss Magnolia Beaumont Goes to Provincetown made its NYC premiere in the Left Out Festival (www.leftoutfestival.com) in April 2008, and was then extended twice throughout the
summer. The show also appeared at the Grand Central Arts Complex in Santa Ana, CA (September 2008). Most recently, the show received critical acclaim and a FringeNYC Overall Excellence Award during its run at the Studio @ Cherry Lane Theatre.
Civil War era Southern debutante Miss Magnolia Beatrice Devareux Beaumont has choked to death on the meat of a pork rib, only to find herself suddenly inhabiting the body of a thirty-something gay New Yorker (to whom she refers as Master Joseph) on his way to Provincetown, Massachusetts for a birthday vacation. But before Miss Beaumont can quietly get used to Master Joseph's cosmopolitan gay lifestyle,
an offensive painting suddenly jolts her into his awareness. After the initial shock and a few disagreements, the two spend the rest of their trip discussing the deeper meanings of life, why they were brought together, and why a simple kite can be such a magical thing.
More than a monologue, Miss Magnolia Beaumont Goes to Provincetown is a modern comic fantasy celebrating the beauty and magic of Provincetown.
