Life Drawing Cancelled for this evening, 9-5-23

Unfortunately the model is ill and a substitute could not be scheduled for this evening. See you next week. 


Curtis Winchester Concert is INSIDE tonight

We have decided to move the concert inside due to the threat of severe weather warnings that are between 5 and 7 PM.  Of course, it might be beautiful because we are going inside, but we want to take the safer course of action. We have plenty of chairs for folks inside so there is no need to bring lawn chairs. You are still welcome to bring food if you like, but we have a delicious food truck outside and a number of tables under a tent to eat at.

Tito Puente Concert will be OUTSIDE

While tonight's forecast has a possibility of a passing shower, we are going to hold the concert outside.  All ticket holders will have their seats guaranteed and we will fit in as many others as we can.



We are Still experiencing issues with the purchase of tickets for the Tito Puente Concert. If you have tried to purchase tickets and have found the web site does not complete the purchase, PLEASE CALL - 845 228 2685


“Titanic Ghosts” playwright Hutchinson scores big in Brooklyn.

       Shortly after “Ghosts of the Titanic” closed at AotL in January, Ron Hutchinson picked up work on Arthur Miller's “The Hook” for last week’s opening on the Waterfront Museum’s barge in Brooklyn. You can read how that happened here (Brklyn Mag) and here (NYTimes), but tickets have already been snapped up for the rest of the run.
       When “The Hook” closes, Hutchinson expects to pick up work on “Cadenza,” a play we hope to present at AotL this fall.
