About The Episode

Salvatore Del Deo is a contemporary painter whose 75-year career  has  been inspired by the light of Provincetown, the  landscape,  particularly the dunes, and the people who cycle in and out of town.

If you don’t know his paintings you likely know his plight.

Since the early 1940’s, his  part-time home has been a dune shack . 

But he nearly lost it when the National Parks Service served the Del Deo family an eviction notice. After a lengthy  and public fight to stay in the shack –Salvatore and the Del Deo family received a five-year reprieve. He joins  The Culture Show  to talk about this and his new show at the LaMontagne Gallery.

And Rebecca Bradshaw knows the local theater scene. From SpeakEasy Stage to the Huntington and beyond, she’s been a triple threat: producing, directing and developing new work.

Now she is bringing her talent and expertise to Gloucester Stage Company. Last year, after a nationwide search, the seaside theater named her its new Artistic Director. She joins The Culture Show to talk about her vision for the company. And its 2024 season which recently kicked off with the comedy Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike playing through June 23rd.
