Mike Flanagan (MikeMRF) and Sheree Marcelle have been performing together for 12 years. They initially bonded over their love for Whitney Houston and they wowed audiences at the Post Office Cafe and Cabaret with their tribute show of her music. Another artist with whom they found creative collaboration was Adele so they have created a new show that will consist of Adele favorites from all four albums. They will play this weekly in repertoire all summer at the Post Office Cabaret alternating with their Whitney Show.
Mike Flanagan is a multi-talented musician Saxophonist, Pianist, and Songwriter, and has released 3 albums and 1 EP . A full-time resident of Provincetown, he is also the Entertainment Director of both the Post Office Cabaret and Tin Pan Alley. For some inexplicable reason, he is still SINGLE …. another reason to go see him perform
Sheree Marcelle is an award-winning singer and performer currently residing in Boston and performing all over New England. Both she and Mike sat down with QUEERGURU to talk about this new show
For ADELE they will be joined by Christian McCarthey on drums and Cliff Letsche on bass, Mike music directs the show on keys while Sheree sings the amazing words and melodies of Adele.

There’s been no looking back for her since then. Her resume includes roles in Cats, Wicked, Next To Normal Hairspray, Finks, Grease etc etc. She has fashioned all of her past in her new cabaret show entitled ‘Confessions of Broadway Baby‘ which she talked about with Queerguru on the eve of opening in the Post Office Cabaret in PTown
Queer hotelier, art lover, and philanthropist Alex Guerra is always such a joy to be around as he is so passionate about all his projects which always end up making a significant contribution to the LGBTQ+ community. A few years back he and partner Stephen Ginez decided to support queer artists and their work by mounting a satellite show in their Miami Hotel when the major (and very straight) ART BASEL arrived every December.
ART Gaysel didn’t just provide a space for these artists to promote and sell their art, but also a much-needed platform for queer artists to communicate, and even collaborate, with each other.
Then when Guerra and GInez fell in love with Provincetown a couple of years ago they ended up buying a house here. And it wasn’t too long after that Guerra wanted to start a Provincetown edition of Art Gaysel. There has always been a wonderful art colony in PTown but there is still a significant shortage of edgy queer art ….. the genre that Guerra is such a passionate specialist in.
So this Pride Week in Ptown….. still a relatively new event, Guerra put his money where his mouth is and filled the Crews Quarters with 13 highly individual queer artists. from across the glove for the first Edition of ART GAYSEL Ptown
We caught up with Guerra on the opening day and talked with him and a few of the artists, We had to keep it brief as the crowds were already beginning to come in
NB This is an interview with a remarkable queer artist that makes art for queer adults.
Daniel Ortiz is a Brooklyn-born queer Artist of Mexican and Puerto Rican descent who is about to participate in ART GAYSEL Miami’s Queerest Art Fair that is making its PROVINCETOWN Debut. He has really been able to hone in on a style of art that truly represents him as a gay Latino. It has not been an easy road of acceptance, but he has managed to actively pursue an art career and has now introduced “Art by Dan” my very first own online shop and brand.
On the eve of the new Fair he talked with QUEERGURU about how he hopes his work will inspire and impact people, especially members of the LGBTQ community
