Join us for this fresh dinner event

Enjoy an afternoon of the best Hudson Valley farm fresh cuisine, prepared by The Chefs’ Consortium. 2022 marks the Chefs’ Consortiums 13th year preparing five course meals on Bannerman Island.

Broadway veteran Craig Schulman wowed audiences on Bannerman Island in 2018 with his performance of John Adams in 1776. and King Arthur in Camelot, Craig hails from his Broadway roles that include: The Phantom in Phantom of the Opera, Jean Valjean in Les Misérables and Jekyll /Hyde in Jekyll and Hyde. Craig will perform a tour of Broadway’s Tour-De-Force Roles at the event.

Review: Schulman and Pops take wild ride down Broadway:
Noisy babies, an empty water glass, a malfunctioning microphone and a massive roster of Broadway numbers no man in his right mind ever would attempt to sing in one night. These were the challenges facing tenor Craig Schulman. Like the lunatic souls he brought to life — Don Quixote, the Phantom, the Beast, Dr. Jekyll — Schulman set for himself a course of diabolical difficulty. And, like the courageous characters he also assumed — Quixote, the Cowardly Lion, Jean Valjean and more — Schulman emerged victorious… This tenor has talent in abundance. Schulman’s clarion, opera-quality tone made his Lancelot (“C’est Moi” from “Camelot”) delightfully insufferable, his Sky Masterson (“Luck Be A Lady” from “Guys and Dolls”) magnetic, his Coalhouse Walker (“Make Them Hear You” from “Ragtime”) noble… stirring in “Into The Fire” from “The Scarlet Pimper-nel” and more humorously in “If I Were King of the Forest” from “The Wizard of Oz.”

Good thing Schulman was crazy enough to try it.
