    Washington Irving, America’s first man of letters, wrote these classic stories set in the Hudson Valley. Edward Versailles wrote the script which premiered in 2014, “Tales” is highly entertaining, humorous and insightful. “The works of Washington Irving are national treasures and are part of the rich history and culture we enjoy here in the Hudson Valley,” said County Executive Mike Hein. “This unique and fun theatrical performance puts a new twist on Irving’s works. We are excited that the Rosendale Theatre is holding such a great event.”
