Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical

More than half a century ago, a little reindeer with a big red nose flew onto televisions around the world and became a holiday tradition for countless families. It makes sense that such a story would be adapted for the stage, but just one problem: not many live actors—or reindeer, or snowmen, or elf dentists—are made of clay. Luckily, the minds behind the live-action adaptation of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer have painstakingly recreated not just the story and music of the Rankin/Bass original, but its distinctive look as well. The set-pieces—trimmed up Christmas trees and oversized presents galore—are flat and boldly colored to capture the storybook feel of the TV special. Likewise, Sam the Snowman has elaborate makeup and an appropriately rotund costume, and the Abominable Snow Monster of the North is every bit as big, bumbling, and fearsome as a Bumble should be, thanks to some handy puppeteers at his side and a tranquilizer kit backstage.

Effects aside, it’s still the story that’s the main attraction. Rudolph chronicles the Christmas icon’s decision to run away from home after being ostracized by his peers from playing any reindeer games. Wandering through the snow-covered North Pole, Rudolph eventually teams up with two other misfits: Hermey the elf, who wants to be a dentist, and Yukon Cornelius, the greatest prospector in the north. Through trial and tribulation, the characters learn to embrace their strengths, accept their differences, appreciate their friendship, and embrace the survivalist lifestyle, especially when they come face to furry knee with the Bumble. But the sense of impending monster danger doesn’t keep them from singing plenty of songs along the way, from the jaunty title track to Burl Ives’ immortal “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas.”

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.
