Lovely old theater. Nice variety of shows, mostly 1-3 day events, including kid friendly. Next to Rutgers U campus, so lots aimed at students. Off Broadway quality. High side of mid-price, still better than NYC.

Outstanding theater in the heart of New Brunswick, NJ. I've seen shows here, but this was the first time I've ever performed here. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The sound is fantastic, and the staff is very friendly. There are a few parking decks nearby. One of the best venues around...

Great variety of productions, e.g., plays, concerts, children's events. Strong connection to the community, with emphasis on students at all education levels. Seats are a little tight, though; leg room was an issue.

I went here for the Disney Live show.... it was like "Mickey & Minnie's Magical Show" or something like that. we brought our 3 year old daughter, she absolutely loved it, I even loved it. The special effects & audience participation was amazing! The theatre itself is not very big but it's perfect for the shows that they have, I definitely want to go again soon!

My family went to go see Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I’m a 19 year old male college student... and I loved it. This show was and still is my favorite Christmas movie and the theatre did a superb job of producing the same story. The casting was great and the effects/costumes are spot on. Other than the tons of little kids in the audience (many of which talk and move around during the show), the play was great and I recommend it to anyone who loves the movie!
