We know that Armistead Maupin is a great storyteller from his legendary “Tales of the City” book series and other novels he’s penned over the years, and this weekend he is also going to be telling those stories at the Paramount in Provincetown.
At his two shows set at the Paramount (at the Crown and Anchor), Maupin will be telling stories about himself and his journey that began, in his words, when he was an “ultra-conservative” young man who is now an activist and voice for the queer community.
When EDGE talked to him earlier this week, the esteemed author didn’t have anything to announce quite yet about what may or may not be happening with a potential “Tales of the City” revival on TV; but there was still plenty to talk about in terms of his love for Ptown, how it and San Francisco are similar, and, since he was present at the recent San Francisco premiere, his thoughts on the upcoming “Looking” movie on HBO.
