“Close by like a "New York Style" Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

We frequent the State Theatre about twice a year and totally enjoy the experience. New Brunswick is nice, with plenty of places to dine after the show. The Theatre is for the most part clean, inviting, and close to home versus going to NYC to see a show.

Last night, we experienced the State Theatre for the 1st time. It's a great venue. The sound system is amaaaaaazing. We enjoyed the performance VERY much. We are, definitely, planning to return.

“What a great little theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Just large enough to hold a good size crowd but small enough to still be quite intimate with the performers. Great acoustics and a super friendly staff. Love going there and the surrounding restaurants make for a great evening out, love this place!

“State Theatre Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

I live in NYC, thus had never heard of the State Theatre until I purchased tickets to see Sinbad perform there September 15th. Very pleasant with good lighting, comfortable seats and a clear line of sight to the stage. The sound system was somewhat muffled. At times I could not make out what Sinbad was saying.

At the end of the performance, we were ushered out the side exit, which was strewn with litter and had an uneven pavement. I don't know if the theatre has any control over the alley, but, at the very least a staff member could sweep up before the end of a performance.

I would have rated this venue 5 stars if not for the audio issues and the unkempt exit alley.

“Very nice place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Love how you can get there so conveniently. You get great shows that are of Broadway category but don't have to drive into the city and parking is so cheap! only $5 in the area.
