Wednesday, September 3
For all of us who think the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival’s season is just too short, our prayers have been answered—they are extending their season through September 7! This hasn’t been done in the group’s 22-year history, but due to sold-out performances of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and fantastic reviews, they decided to give us a little extra. The show, directed by Terrence O’Brien, features 37 plays in 97 minutes and will leave you wondering if Shakespeare was really a comic. (Details)
