Or, Cut The Old Moon Into Stars

It’s a familiar story: an indolent dreamer falls asleep high in the Catskills, wakes after twenty years, and returns to a world he doesn’t recognize. But in Seth Bockley’s new take on this old tale, Rip isn’t the only one rambling. In the New Dutch village of Falling Waters, we meet Rip’s adventurous daughter and her hard-working mother, tinkers, butchers, innkeepers, tall-tale-telling wives, a few seafaring ghosts, the bespectacled author behind the original story, and the beating heart of a community poised somewhere between the distant past and the not-so-distant future. This world premiere adaptation is the first-ever mainstage commission by Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival.

Other Ways to Book Tickets

The majority of tickets for all performances were released at 12:00pm on Wednesday, August 1, and were gone within a half-hour! If you can’t make it to one of our Traveling Box Office locations, be sure to log on for our second online release scheduled for Monday, August 27 at 12:00pm.  All remaining publicly available tickets will be distributed at that time (two total per person).

We also recommend taking a chance the night of your preferred performance. While we can’t guarantee seats, it’s been our experience that we have never had to turn people away for a free show, so an on-site, night-of waitlist will be started an hour before showtime. Stop by and add your name!

If none of these options work for you, we recommend asking a friend or family member who may be involved in the project if they have leads on a ticket or two.
