Item Description

Bid to win this NYC getaway, and enjoy a beautifully curated meal at the Blue Hill at Stone Barns and fantastical Shakespearian performances in the glow of Upstate twilight.

 

Blue Hill at Stone Barns:

For chef Dan Barber, the subject of Season 1, Episode 2 of the Netflix series Chef’s Table, “farm to table” is more than just a buzzy phrase — it’s a way of life.

Dan Barber is the chef and co-owner of Blue Hill in Manhattan and Blue Hill at Stone Barns (Eater critic Bill Addison’s 2016 Best Restaurant in America) in Pocantico Hills, New York, and one of the fiercest culinary advocates for sustainable, ethical farming and seasonal cooking. Barber’s family owns Stone Barns, where, with help from the farmers at Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture, they grow ingredients used at both restaurants.

 

The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival Theater Tent

More than any other venue in the American theater, the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival Theater Tent, based at Boscobel in Garrison, New York, is the perfect home for the sorts of comical-tragical hybrids you’ll see here this summer: an uproarious summertime romp, a fantastical work from the twilight of Shakespeare’s career, Sondheim’s homage to fractured fairy-tales, a reimagining of a French classic by a longtime HVSF fan favorite, and an electrifying play of political upheaval — specially shaped for student audiences.

The full season information is below:

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
By William Shakespeare
Directed by May Adrales
Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably.

Led by 2018 TCG Alan Schneider Director Award Winner, May Adrales, the famous bantering lovers, Benedick and Beatrice, trade barbs while matching wits in Shakespeare’s much-loved summer romp.

CYMBELINE
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Davis McCallum
Fortune brings in some boats that are not steered.

Cymbeline, king of Britain, mourns the loss of two sons, stolen at birth. Meanwhile, his daughter and heir Imogen plans to marry her true love Posthumus while Imogen’s evil queen stepmother works to put her own son on the throne. In this fantastical work from the twilight of Shakespeare’s career, all the elements of a great fairytale combine to lead the play’s heroine to her happily ever after.

CYRANO
By Jason O’Connell and Brenda Withers
Adapted from the play by Edmond Rostand
Directed by Meredith McDonough
A great nose may be an index of a great soul.

Longtime HVSF company member Jason O’Connell leads a five-person cast as his own Cyrano, the brilliant thinker, wordsmith, and swordsman. He’s meet-the-parents material, and everything his one true love, Roxane, should want. But this sophisticated suitor smells a complicated courtship ahead…

INTO THE WOODS
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Jenn Thompson
Once upon a time at the edge of the woods… lived HVSF’s first-ever musical!

For its first-ever musical, HVSF will stage Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony Award-winning classic on its one-of-a-kind perch above the Hudson River. The beloved Broadway hit weaves together fairytale favorites, spinning a dark tale of magic and its many consequences.

JULIUS CAESAR
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Illana Stein
He thinks too much: such men are dangerous.

A charismatic war hero on the brink of kingship, Caesar is celebrated by the people of Rome – but mistrusted by some of his closest friends who fear his popularity will throw the country into chaos. In our immersive, 90-minute production originally developed with middle and high schoolers in mind, audience members will construct a post-apocalyptic world of power and consequence with their own movement and voices.
