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.
