News   Poor Super Man, Directed by David Drake, Begins Performances Oct. 23 Provincetown's Art House Theater presents the New England premiere of Brad Fraser's Poor Super Man, which has been dubbed the "Play with Captions," beginning Oct. 23.

Obie Award winner David Drake, the playwright-actor-columnist best known for his one-man show The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me, directs the production, which runs through Nov. 9.

The cast of Poor Super Man, which explores "the meaning of art, love and the unpredictable nature of sexuality," is led by Spencer Keasey (aka erotic film actor Spencer Quest) as David and New York stage and television actor Scott Douglas Cunningham as Matt with Lacey A. Waite (Violet), Anne Stott (Kryla) and Darlene Van Alstyne (Shannon).

Poor Super Man, according to press notes, "tells the story of a successful Canadian painter experiencing a creative block who, in hopes of reinvigorating his artistic spirit, takes a job as a waiter at a fledgling diner in Calgary, owned by a newlywed couple."

The creative team also includes Rik Kapler (original scenic art), Janette Mason (original music), Stephen Carey (costume design) and Alfonso Suarez (captions design).

Show times are Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2 PM. The production includes adult themes and nudity. The Art House Theater is located at 214 Commercial Street in Provincetown, MA. For tickets, priced $22, call (508) 487-9222 or visit www.ptownarthouse.com.
