SOPAC Joins Theaters Around The Country With Beatles Message Of Love On Marquee

SOPAC Joins Theaters Around The Country With Beatles Message Of Love On Marquee

(SOUTH ORANGE, NJ) -- Joining several theatres across the country in a musical message of joy, the South Orange Performing Arts Center recently posted the title of the Beatles’ iconic hit song “All You Need Is Love” on its marquee.  The performing arts center was looking for ways to communicate with patrons in the area during its COVID-19 mandated closure and thought that a simple message of love would lift spirits and remind people of the inspiration that music and great artists bring to the world.

"We all can use a positive message as we try to keep our spirits up during these difficult times. What better way to do that than to invoke one of the most enduring songs of one of the most beloved rock bands of all time?” said Executive Director Craig Sumberg. “We look to songwriters, poets, and other visionaries to help us get through tough times with inspiration and beauty.  We look forward to opening SOPAC’s doors again in the not-too-distant future and welcoming great artists back to our stage.”

“We hope this continues to spread across the country as we are reminded of the importance of loving each other through trying circumstances, and the power of music,” concluded Sumberg.

Since 2006, SOPAC has been serving as a premier performing arts center in the region. SOPAC offers innovative artistic and cultural experiences for diverse audiences in an intimate, inviting environment. The arts center hosts a variety of live performances, community events and education programs for all ages. SOPAC is home for Seton Hall University Arts Council’s performances, including Classical Concert Series, Jazz ‘N the Hall performances and Seton Hall University Theatre productions. SOPAC programs are made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. The South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
