    Hudson Theatre Ensemble presents John Cariani’s Almost, Maine, an enchanting collection of vignettes about ordinary people in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Poignant, funny, and smart, Almost, Maine is wonderfully whimsical as well as down-to- earth. This is a play to love— for its quirkiness and its unabashed romantic spirit. The show will take place at the Hudson School Performance Space located at 601 Park Avenue (6th & Park) Hoboken, NJ 07030. Tickets are $20 for General Admission and $15 for seniors & students.
