A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown, reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon: for $18, you get a ticket to Streb: Brave on Friday, February 4 at 8 p.m. at the State Theatre, located in New Brunswick (up to a $45 value).
A renovated vaudeville and silent-film palace, the State Theatre vivifies New Jersey’s cultural landscape with a collage of festivals, Broadway shows, and contemporary performances. This deal gives aspiring rug-cutters a chance to admire the chromatic acrobatics of Streb, an eight-member dance troupe that flips and flies across the stage in a breathtaking combination of gymnastics, dance, stunt work, and step-by-step re-creations of the 1997 World Series.
Everyone, regardless of age, must have a ticket for admission.

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.
