  • Actors & Writers perform at Maverick Concert Hall on July 6 and 13.

Woodstock's historic Maverick Concert Hall hosts two diverse readings by Actors & Writers on Saturday July 6 and 13 at 6:30pm. An intimate rustic hall, the Maverick has hosted summer music concerts since 1916. Actors & Writers, a 26-member ensemble of Hudson Valley theater and film professionals, honors this legacy on July 6 with "Noteworthy Shorts: The Music Plays." Offerings range from a country-western comedy by Laura Shaine to David Smilow's backstage drama about an aging rocker. On July 13, "Emoteworthy Shorts: The Theatre Plays" opens the curtain on a range of theatrical misbehavior, including monologues about auditioning and the pitfalls of overacting by "Saturday Night Live" veteran Denny Dillon and Tony Award-winner Mary Louise Wilson, with scenes by Anton Chekhov, Kaufman and Hart, William Shakespeare, and others.
