“As a tradition my family and I would go every year to NYC to see the production of A Christmas Carol. We moved to Cold Spring five months ago and was very excited to hear we could see the production at the Hudson House. It wasn’t only excellent it was better than the musical in NYC! The actors were professional and the music and costumes were first rate.” – Mary Ann Giocastro, Cold Spring, NY
