Newsies, The Musical @ Centenary Stage Company, 400 Jefferson Street, Hackettstown

Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies,” who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. 
Newsies features a score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Harvey Fierstein.   On stage November 24 through December 10.

A Christmas Story @ Algonquin Arts, 60 Abe Voorhees Drive, Manasquan

Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, the musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts - an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun. A Christmas Story is based on the classic 1983 movie that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas. On stage from November 25 through December 10.

An Act Of God @ George Street Playhouse, 103 College Farm Road, New Brunswick

Following Her recent sold-out Broadway run, God arrives in New Brunswick — and she looks a lot like Kathleen Turner! Called “deliriously funny” by The New York Times, God takes human form in Act of God and doesn’t hold back about what He’s seen and heard. In this hilarious comedy by Emmy Award-winner David Javerbaum (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), God, along with two archangels, answers many of the deepest (and not so deep) questions that have plagued mankind since Creation. On stage November 28 through December 23.

Good Friends Bring "Turning Off The Morning News" To The Stage

Mark Twain once observed, “The secret source of humor itself is not joy but sorrow.” One of America’s funniest playwrights, Christopher Durang, is proof. His plays are absurd, comical, and, almost always, very dark.
