Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival's summer performances take place at historic Boscobel House and Gardens, 1601 Route 9D, Garrison, NY 10524. Getting here by bus, car, train, shuttle, or taxi is easy!
Most performances begin at 7:30pm, and we recommend arriving at Boscobel House and Gardens at least 15 minutes - and up to 2 hours - prior to showtime to explore the grounds, soak up the gorgeous Hudson River views, enjoy a picnic dinner, participate in a pre-show discussion, and kick back. Upon arriving on-site, greeters will direct you to the Box Office/Ticket Pick-up, located in the Rose Garden on fairweather days or inside Boscobel's Carriage House when raining.
Add $38 to your order on select Saturdays to catch a comfy, round-trip bus from the Damrosch Park area of Lincoln Center (roughly 158 W. 62nd Street) to the Theater Tent. Buses depart from NYC at 4:00pm on select dates, arrive at the HVSF Theater Tent at roughly 5:30pm, and depart for the city again at the close of the evening's performance -- roughly 10:00pm. You’ll have more than enough time for a pre-show picnic!
