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
