LONJ is proud to present The Barber of Seville, Gioachino Rossini's classic and beloved comic opera, under the direction of Jamie Baer Peterson with musical direction by Robert Butts.
This program is made possible, in part, by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, and administered by the Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Commission through the State/County Partnership Local Arts Program.
Nothing is as inevitable as change, but rarely has change been so rapid and tumultuous. From the environment and climate to industries and social systems, we live in a time of constant disorder. What is being lost, what is being gained and how do we survive these sudden and comprehensive upheavals?
Disruption – the new thematic series by Jersey City Theater Center (JCTC), opening March 31st running through June 9th – looks at the personal, social and political impact of the current era of disorienting change. Through visual arts, theatre, readings, performances and music, JCTC explores topics global in scope yet relevant to the community. The Disruption series examines how our current era of change is impacting individuals, communities and culture.
Dear MPAC Patrons,
On March 16th, the new Trump Administration released their budget proposal to fund the federal government for the coming fiscal year (FY2018). The Trump proposal includes massive budget cuts, including elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
NEA funding in New Jersey is crucial to our field's well being. As a patron of Mayo Performing Arts Center, you should know that a significant portion of New Jersey State Arts Council funds are provided by direct funding from the NEA.
These budget cuts will limit our capacity to present the world-class performances you enjoy in our theatre, and the enriching education and outreach opportunities we provide to the community.
This is not just about the arts. This is about access, creativity, equity, community, history, and heritage. That means it's about everyone in this country, and everyone should care and speak up loudly. Your voice is important now and throughout the long budget process.
On behalf of ArtPride NJ, we are looking to have an army of arts advocates contact their federal representatives, share their support on social media, and encourage their friends and family to join the cause.
Please visit ArtPride NJ's website for ways you can advocate through direct contact with elected officials and via social media.
Thank you for your advocacy efforts!

Mile Square Theatre, Hudson County’s leading professional theatre, presents Harold Pinter’s Betrayal.
Darkly humorous and charged with emotion, Betrayal explores marriage and infidelity among the entangled trio of Robert, Emma, and Jerry. Robert and Jerry are best friends and partners in a publishing firm. But an affair between Emma (Robert’s wife) and Jerry creates a tense world of deception and mistrust. Famous for its structured timeline reversal, Betrayal cinematically unravels the plot, ingeniously using dramatic irony to build tension.
MST Artistic Director Chris O’Connor says of the show, “It has been a long-standing dream of mine to direct this piece. This is one of the Nobel Prize-winning Harold Pinter’s masterworks. I’m excited to work again with Dena Tyler (CBS’s Bull), who played Kari in our production of The Pavilion. She will be teamed up with MST favorite Matthew Lawler (ABC’s The Family) and Aidan Redmond (The Cripple if Inishmaan on B’way). These three actors have what it takes to mine the deep emotional undercurrents of Pinter’s writing.”

George Street Playhouse has announced that stage and screen legends Judd Hirsch (TV: Taxi, Superior Donuts; Film: Ordinary People, Independence Day) and Dan Lauria (TV: The Wonder Years, Pitch; Broadway: Lombardi, A Christmas Story) have been cast for a special one-night-only reading of Jeffrey Sweet’s play, The Value of Names, on Thursday, May 11, 2017, at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $35 with limited $75 premium seating available. Premium seating includes an exclusive post-show reception with the artists. Tickets can be ordered online at http://gsponline.org, via phone at 732-246-7717 or in person at the GSP box office. George Street Playhouse is located at 9 Livingston Avenue, in the heart of New Brunswick’s dining and entertainment district. For tickets and information, patrons may contact the Box Office directly at 732-246-7717 or may purchase online at GSPonline.org.
In The Value of Names, Benny Silverman (Hirsch) is a retired comic whose career was derailed by the McCarthy-era blacklist. His actress daughter is working on a project when the director falls ill and is forced to step down. Taking his place is the man who betrayed Benny to the House Un-American Activities Committee – and his former best friend, Leo Greshen (Lauria). These circumstances converge to give the two men the opportunity to confront each other — face-to-face.
Judd Hirsch made his stage debut in the early 1960s. In 1978, he landed his breakout role as Alex Reiger on the hit sitcom Taxi, for which he won two Emmy Awards. Around this time, he scored an Oscar nomination for his performance in the 1980 film Ordinary People. He won Tony Awards for Best Lead Actor in a Play for I’m Not Rappaport in 1986 and Conversations with My Father in 1992. Hirsch went on to enjoy featured roles on such shows as Dear John and Numb3rs, as well as in movies like Independence Day and its sequel Independence Day: Resurgence. He can currently be seen in Superior Donuts on CBS.
Dan Lauria returns to George Street Playhouse for the first time since the 2007 production of The Value of Names co-starring Jack Klugman. Previous appearances at George Street include the 1998 and 2006 productions of Inspecting Carol, and 2005’s The Winning Streak. His stage credits also include a critically acclaimed portrayal of legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi in Lombardi on Broadway in 2010. Two years later, he played broadcasting legend and writer Jean Shepherd in the Broadway production of A Christmas Story: The Musical, based on Shepherd’s original radio story-turned-hit movie. He is best known for his portrayal of family patriarch Jack Arnold on television’s The Wonder Years. He can be seen in Fox’s Pitch as baseball team manager Al Luongo.
