Hello I am the director of the non-profit Afterglow Festival in Provincetown which enters it’s seventh year in September; and I’m also director of the Glowberon series at the American Repertory Theater/Oberon in Cambridge which enters year three this September. Meanwhile we are realizing a long-held dream of starting a new summer festival in Cambridge (venued at Oberon) that we hope some day will rival the scope of an Edinburgh fringe. The new venture is called the Glow Festival and we are starting small this year, with five performers/acts over four days, July 27-30: Justin Vivian Bond, Penny Arcade, Marga Gomez, Tammy Faye Starlite and Brian King & What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? will appear. Like Afterglow, Glow is non-profit 501 c 3 charitable arts organization to which donations are tax deductible. We have a bunch of expenses, including, in effect, renting and paying the staff of Oberon. Ultimately we shall seek big sponsorship to grow Glow into what it might become. Meanwhile, we are super grass-rootsing it using a model that has worked great with Afterglow. So please, if you would: Become a SPARKLER of the Glow Festival by making a tax-deductible donation of $100 online or by mail AND we will send you a special code so that you can buy tickets to the festival at a 20% discount. Not only that: as a SPARKLER you can attend our opening night party which is just prior to Justin Vivian Bond’s show(s)—7:30 and 10PM on Thursday, July 27. (This is Justin Vivian Bond’s only 2017 New England appearance—and Penny Arcade is making her Boston/Cambridge debut.) And, of course, you write off the donation. You can donate at www.glowfest.org OR send a check to PO Box 129 Provincetown, MA 02657. Just be sure to write a little note to say that this is a Glow Festival donation (as opposed to an Afterglow Festival donation). In the next few years we hope to be bringing progressive talent from all over the glow to Cambridge each summer!
