BROADWAY AT THE ART HOUSE and Mark Cortale present Gavin Creel, 2018 Tony Award-winning star of Broadway’s HELLO DOLLY opposite Bette Midler, SHE LOVES ME and HAIR, for two shows only. Gavin Creel will return to Provincetown on July 5 and 6 at 7:00 PM featuring series host and SiriusXM radio star Seth Rudetsky on the piano.

Gavin Creel won the 2014 Olivier Award and the WhatsOnStage Award for Best Actor In A Musical for his starring role in London’s West End production of The Book of Mormon in the role of Elder Price.

Gavin Creel received two Tony nominations for Claude in HAIR and Jimmy in THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE. He was also seen in the Broadway Revival of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, The Goodman Theatre/Kennedy Center production of BOUNCE, as well as HAIR and MARY POPPINS in London.

Creel is also a respected advocate for the LGBT community. In the fall of 2009, he was honored as one of OUT Magazine’s OUT 100 for his work as co-founder of Broadway Impact, a grassroots organization of the theatre community fighting for marriage equality. Through his advocacy, Creel has gained national attention performing and speaking at events and rallies including the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) national dinner alongside Lady Gaga and keynote speaker President Obama; The Cyndi Lauper True Colors Cabaret series featuring Jason Mraz, Rufus Wainwright, and Sara Bareilles; and on the Capitol lawn at the 2009 National Equality March.

Seth Rudetsky is the afternoon host on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio’s “On Broadway” as well as the host of Seth Speaks on Sirius/XM Stars. As an author, he penned “My Awesome/Awful Popularity Plan” and the sequel “The Rise And Fall Of A Theater Geek” (Random House) as well as three volumes of “Seth’s Broadway Diary” featuring inside scoop and hilarious stories from all of the stars he’s worked with. He co-wrote and co-starred in “Disaster!” (NY TIMES critics pick”) which also premiered to rave reviews in London.

In June 2016, he and his husband, James Wesley, co-produced a recording of “What The World Needs Now” with stars like Idina Menzel, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Carole King, Audra McDonald which went to number one on iTunes and raised more than $100,000 for the Orlando shooting victims (and is still raising money. Buy it!). Seth and James have a foundation called Your Kids Our Kids that presented “Concert For America; a series around the country featuring stars like Barry Manilow, Stephanie Mills, Vanessa Williams, Tina Fey, Randy Rainbow and Audra MacDonald that raised money for 5 non-profits that have been working relentlessly since the 2016 presidential election. They also present Voices for The Voiceless, a yearly star-studded concert for You Gotta Believe which helps older foster children find families, even if they’ve aged out of the system.
