Pericles, Prince of Tyre

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Terrence O'Brien

Pericles, the ultimate action hero, comes to the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival. Don't miss the riotous adventures of this magnificent character. 

"One could, in fact, imagine a Steven Spielberg or a George Lucas warming to these stories should they ever want to look far back to the past rather than to the future.  The winds of chance carry the characters through the most unlikely circumstances -outrageous coincidence, sea-tossed shifts in motivation and the apparently dead returning to life.";

- Mel Gussow, The New York Times
