The Hudson Opera House in Hudson, NY has completed the final phase of a major restoration project begun in April of 2016. The re-opening of the historic theater is accompanied by a name change: the Hudson Opera House will be renamed Henry Hudson Hall.
In honoring the city’s historic namesake, Henry Hudson, the new name marks a significant evolution for the iconic venue, which, from its founding in 1855 until the building was abandoned in 1962, has witnessed some of the most exciting cultural, social and political events of the day.
The 2017 season at Henry Hudson Hall Center for the Arts opens with The Proprietors Ball on Saturday, April 22, followed by a Community Day on Sunday, May 21 with free performances and workshops by Hudson’s own Bindlestiff Family Cirkus.
Here to tell us more about the restoration and upcoming exciting events are Gary Schiro, Executive Director of the Hudson Opera House, and Megan Kent, founder of the Megan Kent Branding Group.
