Three powerful actors will be meeting this month in Ellenville, New York. Among them is a five-time Emmy winner who's also in possession of a Tony, a Golden Globe and six Screen Actor's Guild awards.
Many in the Hudson Valley may recognize Tony Shalhoub as Miriam Maisel's father on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Others may remember him as the title character of Monk, where Shalhoub played the obsessive-compulsive detective for eight seasons. The actor started his career in the theater before getting his first television role on the award-winning series Wings.

Shalhoub will be performing for one night only at Shadowland Stages on Canal Street in Ellenville, New York. The actor will be joined by David Strathairn and Jay O. Sanders for a staged reading of The Road to Jerusalem.
The story involves seven interconnected stories that take place the small town of Jerusalem, Arizona in 1889.
