(UNION, NJ) — Imagine working in an industry that is seemingly falling apart with plant closings announced each month and the threat of your own job being eliminated weighing heavily on your mind each day.  That’s the premise behind Skeleton Crew by Dominique Morisseau, which takes place in Detroit (circa 2008) when auto plants were downsizing, shutting down, and moving outside of the area....

From an entertainment options point of view, we live in an abundant world. Even for those of us outside of the city, there are more interesting things available than one can reasonably expect to see and do.

When the days are longest, the world can magically transform. In a new production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” the fairies Moth, Cobweb, Mustardseed, Peaseblossom, Puck, Oberon and Titania transform items most of us casually throw away. Old keys, straws, plastic membership and transit cards, wine corks and CDs, all combine in costumes and sets that evoke a magical world. Director and designer Bonnie Monte – a self-proclaimed collector and recycler – describes her vision of “Midsummer” to producer Susan Wallner. The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jerseyperforms “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at their outdoor stage at the College of St. Elizabeth in Morris Township through July 30th.... READ ON

At the Paper Mill Playhouse, in Millburn, NJ, the energetic cast of Mary Poppins delivers on such musical theatre classics as “Chim Chim Cher-ee”, “A Spoonful of Sugar”, “Let’s Go Fly a Kite,” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” — all special songs which, to many, will happily bring them back to their childhoods watching the 1964 Disney film starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke....

Of all the theatres in New Jersey, George Street Playhouse has always held a close place in my heart. Back in 2003, I launched a monthly print publication called Upstage Magazine. Even though we were based along the Jersey Shore, New Brunswick quickly became our adopted home base. And George Street was part of the magazine from the first issue in which we interviewed the actor Alan Rachins who was starring in Attacks on a Heart at the theatre.... READ ON
