What You'll Get
Though now commonplace, acting was condemned in colonial times as “public lying,” with offenders being yanked off the streets with novelty-size shepherd’s crooks. Embrace vaudevillainy with today’s deal: for $14, you get a ticket for mid-balcony seating in section B to ‘S Wonderful: The New Gershwin Musical at the State Theatre in New Brunswick on Sunday, October 30, at 3 p.m. (a $42 value, including fees). Doors open at 2 p.m.
‘S Wonderful treats audiences’ ears to the timeless music of George and Ira Gershwin, whose collaborations resulted in 20th-century American-songbook standards. The all-singing, all-dancing revue is split up into several mini musicals, each set in a time and place reflective of a different phase of the Gershwins’ career. Like a space-shuttle launch, a live orchestra accompanies the musical extravaganza, which enhances renditions of popular tunes from 1930s Paris and jazz standards from 1950s New Orleans. The performers recreate more than 40 Gershwin classics throughout the evening, including “Rhapsody in Blue” and “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off.” The toe-tapping euphony will take place in the elegant confines of the State Theatre, a restored 1921 vaudeville and silent-film palace complete with sepia ghosts dangling from its luxurious chandelier.

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.
