The historic entertainment palace that is New Brunswick's State Theatre ushers in the acrobatic feats of Cirque Chinois, the National Circus of the People's Republic of China. Against rotating backdrops that flourish with brilliant hues, fire, and replicas of ancient buildings, performers front-flip through hoops and dangle, suspended, from ropes while donning elaborate costumes of feathers borrowed from the private collection of Big Bird. Visceral percussion and haunting vocals set the soundtrack to the event as the acrobats thrill onlookers with collective acts such as the Group Contortion and the Great Teeterboard.
The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.

“When I bought this Groupon I did not know what to expect The theater it self can use a little upgrade in the chairs, they were comfortable but not enough and also the seating number looked that they were fading away The service was excellent The staff were so nice and helpful They only sold popcorn and pretzels and their drinks were expensive, so I would say that they should lower their value of their goods and have more variety Drinks were been sold at 400% more of their original value The show itself was perfect I loved the show and I will def go back I had so much fun and it was amazing I went on Saturday night and it was a full house finding a seat was so easy because the staff helped you If you are into acrobats and getting amazed they this is a show for you The show was also funny”
