“Don't Waste Your Money for Manheim Steamroller Concerts Here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

If you can't afford to sit in orchestra or similar, DON'T pay $50 + for tix in balcony. You can't see the big screen - except for the bottom. So, if you don't mind watching feet, sans faces, etc. then go ahead. The view is blocked by the lighting. There is no mention that there is a partial blockage of the set designs. As such, you can't get into the spirit of the Holiday...good waste of money. Two tickets run $100. Truly a shame.

“Play”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Last time at the State Theatre, I saw Fiddler on the Roof. First time I had been there also. I never knew we had such a beautiful theater right here in New Brunswick NJ. We also have had so many other good acts over the last 2 years, I wish I could have made it. Anywhere you sit, auidibly there is no issue, no matter where you sit, you can see the actors/actress's clearly and the look and feel is of old day theatrics, with its red velvet curtains and an orchestratal area, etc. Can't wait to make the next play.

“Broadway Meets New Brunswick”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The State Theater is one of those 'grand old vaudville houses'. It presents an unbelieveable line-up of diverse entertainment, from B'way musicals to solo entertainers, balet, opera, kids shows, and so on. The tickets are reasonably priced, but the lesser expensive seats in the balcony provide less foot room.

“great place for a show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

State Theatre is a great alternative to going into NYC or Newark. The shows are very professional, especially the oldies music shows. We have seen a number of shows and have never been disappointed.
