“Rude ushers”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

My wife and I went to a NJ Symphony performance 11/17/2013. While the musicians were fantastic, the employees f the theater were ridiculous. They allowed late guests to come during pieces and caused a commotion, distracting us from the performance. During intermission, we asked the ushers in the balcony if they could keep down the noise. They told us to go talk to the symphony management if we didn't like what they were doing. Well we did just that and the NJ Symphony indicated that the ushers were completely unprofessional and offered to comp us for tickets. Bottomline, the performances are great, but the staff at the State Theatre are the worst.

“Beautiful Old Theater”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

This theater dates back to 1921. It is a beautiful theater. Just about any seat in the house would be good for a concert or show. Good sound system. Easy to get to with ample parking in the area. Seats were a bit uncomfortable after a couple of hours, but still a good place to go.

“A step back in time”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

This theatre brings one back to the "good times" in all our lives. The atmosphere and décor are reminiscent of the good old days. Just about every seat has unbelievable views of both the beauty and splendor of the theatre and the stage. The sound is great for any show at this venue. As an "oldies" addict a most recent show at this venue proved fabulous and will be remembered for many years to come.

“Big old time Theatre”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Good shows but if your not enthused with it, wait to see if it shows up on a discount ticket site. The discount tickets are way back and in corners

“Roomy seats...”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Definitely a good place for a concert. Seats were comfortable and not all squished together. Love this theater.
