David Sedaris returns to the Bardavon 1869 Opera House for an unforgettable evening of wit and satire. One of America's preeminent humor writers and a New York Times best-selling author, his new book, "Happy-Go-Lucky," debuted at number one on the New York Times best-seller list. He will sign books in the lobby immediately following his performance and the Q & A session. The Bardavon 1869 Opera House is the oldest continuously operating theater in New York State and one of the oldest in the entire country. A premier Hudson Valley destination, the Bardavon continues to delight the community with its proud history, breathtaking architecture and outstanding programming. Located in the heart of Downtown Poughkeepsie, the Bardavon is within walking distance of several fantastic restaurants, as well as the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel. It is only a short cab ride from the Poughkeepsie Train Station, which provides service for both the Metro-North Railroad (Hudson Line) and Amtrak, so getting there is a snap from New York City, Albany and beyond.
