About This Deal

The Deal

Tao: Drum Heart

  • What it is: a traditional Japanese drumming performance with pops of 21st Century flair
  • The sights: elaborate costumes, precisely choreographed dances, and muscles—so many muscles
  • The sounds: thunderous taiko drums and passionate, near-militaristic chanting
  • How it all started: In 2004, Tao appeared at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe—arguably the world’s largest arts festival—and stole the show, leading to a world tour and appearance at the Vancouver Olympics in 2010.
  • By the numbers: The show has travelled to more than 22 countries and 400 cities, it has dazzled nearly 7 million spectators, and it has probably inspired at least one person to incorporate drumming into their workout routine.

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.
