Outdoor play and picnic at Boscobel: The Two Gentleman of Verona

Over the last few years we have enjoyed several fantastic performances in the idyllic setting of Boscobel's outdoor theater. This year I will be attending all 3 plays, come join us for 1, 2 or all 3 (see discounts below)! On Wednesday June 18th join us for:

The Two Gentleman of Verona by William Shakespeare directed by Eric Tucker.

Shakespeare's take on friendship, young love, constancy and fickleness, this romantic comedy takes us from the courtly world of Verona and Milan to the wildness of the forest where, it seems, anything can happen.

Potluck picnic on the lawns prior to the show

Prior to the show we plan on having a potluck picnic on the lawn, with views of the Hudson River and surrounding hills.   Note I hope to be able to attend the picnic but it will depend on my work schedule, I will update nearer the time.  The group of course can still picnic together regardless!

As the audience sits under a tent the performance will occur rain or shine, only the actors might get wet whilst we still enjoy the surrounding scenery!


5.30pm - picnic. Bring a dish to share. 

7pm - performance starts.

We will meet on the lawn overlooking the Hudson at 5.30 pm for our picnic; bring food to share and a blanket/chair.  Having cups and plates etc would be a good idea too! The picnic is subject to cancellation, depending on the weather.

Purchasing tickets If you wish to join us please purchase your own tickets at

Cost Center $39.50, Side $32, Restricted View $29 and $27(plus booking fee).

I would recommend avoiding the side seats on the right, with many of those seats you will have sun in your eyes as the sun goes down (visor provided!)

    What a perfect evening - thanks Heike for organizing and everyone for the company and good food. I loved the modern take on this play, its energy and how funny it was. Also, you can't beat the setting .... just beautiful.

    Could I buy a ticket there or will it probably be sold out?

      John, I would check out the website to get a sense on how many seats are still available. If you can only make the decision later in the day, you can still most likely buy online as all tickets are anyway picked up at the box office when you arrive.

    Heike, All, I see 8 signed up from this group but not everyone has confirmed that they have tickets. Please post a note if you have a ticket but are not listed below:
    Joy I have arranged at present to work from home that day so I can do the portluck picnic prior to the performance, if you plan on joining (weather permitting) and have not indicated in your RSVP please go to change RSVP and answer the question posted there. That way I know who to look out for.

    thanks Heike
