In their yearly celebration of the holiday season, Crossroads Theatre Company brings together a multicultural mélange of spirit-stoking music. This year’s production revisits the Yuletide tunes of the 1970s, spreading holiday cheer with Motown classics hearkening back to a bygone era of bell-bottom jeans, Afros, and cinderblock-size iPods. As the Santa-hat-clad cast of singers and dancers induces warm, fuzzy feelings throughout the theater, families are invited to join the celebration and share in their energetic goodwill.
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.
