Get Thee To Troilus And Cressida

If you enjoy Shakespeare performed beautifully in a magnificent setting, don’t miss the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival at the Boscobel Restoration in Garrison, New York.

Troilus and Cressida opened July 3rd, and it was terrific.

We started the evening with a delightful picnic on Boscobel’s Hudson River grounds, then moved into the tent for an inventive performance of the baudy, Trojan tale.

Things got even more unusual in the Second Act, which began with a quirky, yet oddly fitting musical number. After the music, the audience members were welcomed to leave their seats temporarily, walk down to the Hudson River, and view the holiday fireworks display that was about to take place across the river at West Point.

Once the fireworks were over, we returned to our seats and the play continued. What fun!

And that brings me to my latest limerick:

Like Shakespeare performed in a tent?
Then see Troilus — it’s time quite well spent:
At the Boscobel joint—
Straight across from West Point.
Please don’t miss it — you’ll surely repent.

    Temtped to write a limerick here. Instead I’ll share that Wifey and I went up to Ashland, Oregon last weekend to see some of the Shakespeare Festival. Great shows done by great actors. Including an improv Bard show by a funny troupe. A good time was had by all.

    Shakespeare was really the Bard
    And sometimes quite the card
    We saw Twelfth Night
    Which was quite a delight
    To love him is not very hard.

    (okay, okay)
