A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Take a test drive in Shakespeare’s sports car with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a general-admission ticket to The Bomb-itty of Errors at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival (up to a $47 value). See the schedule for available show dates and times.

Located on the stunning grounds of the Boscobel House overlooking the Hudson River, the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival envelops theatergoers in a critically acclaimed outdoor theater experience-blanket. This season, viewers can lend an eye and ear to the company as they perform The Bomb-itty of Errors, a rap adaptation of Shakespeare's classic, The Comedy of Errors, and a superb way to introduce first-timers to the Bard. For the stage sharks who have seen the original, the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival will challenge their prior conceptions through reinterpretation and distilled action for a fresh approach that warrants a Shakespearean double take.

Make the most of your evening out by starting it early with a picnic on the Boscobel grounds. Pack a basket of food and drinks to share with a date or friendly albatross, or order a meal and a bottle of wine when you order your tickets and pick it up when you arrive. Edibles include a vegetarian salad medley ($16), tandoori chicken breast ($18), and poached salmon filet ($22), which you can pair with a bottle of cabernet, chardonnay, or merlot (all bottles are $20; click here to see a full menu). When your belly is stuffed to the gills, head to the tent to digest the sights and sounds of hip-hoppity versification.

Reviews

The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival has received praise for its adaptations of Shakespeare's classic. The Wall Street Journal raves about the festival, and LoHud.com wrote a glowing review of The Bomb-itty of Errors.

  • The shows are bright and lively, the performers engaging, the setting gorgeous, the atmosphere joyous. I won't say that it's impossible to have a bad time at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival -- some people are inexplicably resistant to pleasure -- but I've been going to Garrison for four summers now, and my annual visit has become one of the most eagerly awaited dates on my theatrical calendar. – Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal
  • Purists might take issue with taking the bard out of his iambic parameters and putting him into the rap world, but Shakespeare’s unlikeliest of stories remains intact. – Peter D. Kramer, LoHud.com

Designed by course architect Dick Wilson, Garrison Golf Club’s 18-hole course covers the tree-lined hills, valleys, and ravines of the Hudson Highlands as golfers drink in sweeping views from 800 feet above the Hudson River. Without disturbing the native birds and wildlife, the course artfully integrates the natural terrain into a challenging layout, featuring multiple shots that must clear deep chasms and rolling fairways that create tricky hill lies and test golf carts’ vulnerability to motion sickness. Stone walls and mature oaks and hemlocks add to the stately scenery as players grapple with testy hazards, such as those encountered at the par three 17th hole, where tee shots must find a putting surface buttressed by sprawling trees, sand traps, and a stream.

An Audubon International–certified course, Garrison Golf Club’s environmentally friendly efforts include a 2-acre organic farm that sprouts heirloom tomatoes, nine kinds of lettuce, and other greens incorporated into dishes at Valley and Terrace Grill, the club’s onsite restaurants. Guests may also opt to wind down at World’s End Bar, a cozy spot ideal for sipping cocktails or interrogating fellow players about the veracity of their scorecards.

Founded by the Marc and Livia Straus family, the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art strives to present interdisciplinary programs that enrich the community through many forms of contemporary art. Works from renowned and emerging contemporary artists share the Center's 12,000-square feet of exhibition space with a variety of long-term installations, several made by participants in the nonprofit’s artist in residence program. The HVCCA supplies artists with studio space, living quarters, and an extended stipend in order to foster creative work on-site and engage in an active discussion with visitors or talkative muses. Special events range from panel discussions and film screenings to a monthly family art day with lessons for parents and kids based on current exhibits. The Center has also organized special projects including the Banner Project, where artists mentor more than 300 youth in creating a large-scale installation, and the Public Tile Project, where 2,000 students design tiles that for a trail from Peekskill Train Station to the Center.
