Each summer HVSF puts on three plays to keep the spirit of Shakespeare alive, all staged under an open-air theater tent with gorgeous views of the Hudson River at Boscobel. This year marks Shakespeare's 450th birthday, which the talented actors celebrate as they stage productions of "Othello," "The Two Gentlemen of Verona," and "The Liar" by David Ives. Arrive early to enjoy a pre-theater gourmet picnic, or visit the HVSF Café for soft drinks, wine, beer, sandwiches, and desserts, where you can pre-order snacks for intermission. There'll be opportunities to chat with directors and actors, see how actors interpret contemporary works, along with family, teen, and young Shakespeare programs. The season kicks off on June 10 at Boscobel Garrison. (845) 265-9575; Hvshakespeare.org.
