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.

About State Theatre New Jersey
The State Theatre New Jersey 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 New Jersey 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.
