The General From Americawritten by Richard Nelson and directed by Peggy Metropulos, tells the story of a newborn United States of America engaged in a fight for its life, with the Hudson Valley at the center of the action. As whispers of treason creep through the colonies, history’s quintessential malefactor, Benedict Arnold, plots his defection and flight from this fledgling nation.


  Drama League and Drama Desk Award nominee Julia Coffey has joined the company of The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival to take over the roles of Rosalind in As You Like It, and Mariana and Mistress Overdone in Measure for Measure.

Staged in the tent at Boscobel House and Gardens in Garrison, NY and framed by stunning Hudson Valley views, As You Like It runs in rep through August 27th, and the final performance of Measure for Measure’s will be on August 28th.

A U.S. senator and two congress people from New York say they are working to protect the Hudson Valley as well as promote tourism and recreation. And they’re hoping to garner support to study the area for the potential to be designated as a national park.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and congressional representatives Nita Lowey and Sean Patrick Maloney, all Democrats, are behind three pieces of legislation they say would continue to shine a national spotlight on the Hudson River Valley region, from Saratoga to Westchester Counties.
