State Theatre NJ & Beasley Media Group Announce the Naming of State Theatre

(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- State Theatre New Jersey has announced the naming of its Green Room to the “Beasley Media Group Green Room” as part of the theater’s Next Stage Campaign. This naming commemorates Beasley Media Group’s commitment to the arts community and longtime support of State Theatre New Jersey, which is currently celebrating its 100th Anniversary Season.  

State Theatre’s Next Stage Campaign, which began in August 2020, included extensive renovations to help preserve the theater’s rich history while continuing to serve the community as a state-of-the-art cultural center far into the future. The renovations, which were completed in October 2021, included newly renovated lobbies, all new restrooms, upgraded HVAC systems, a new elevator for access to all levels, brand-new theater seats, and renovations to the backstage area, including the green room. 

The green room is traditionally a lounge space in theaters for artists to relax before, during, and after their performances, as well as greet guests. The green room has hosted countless stars of theater, music, dance, and movies over the course of State Theatre’s 100 years. 

“We are delighted to honor our partnership with Beasley Media Group with this Green Room naming,” said Sarah Chaplin, State Theatre New Jersey President & CEO. “The Beasley Media Group Green Room will serve as the theater’s premiere backstage lounge for artists and performers for many years to come.” 

“We are honored and thrilled with the naming of the Beasley Media Group Green Room in the historic and beautiful State Theatre New Jersey,” said Dan Finn, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Beasley Media Group. “Congratulations to the State Theatre on the success of the Next Campaign and for celebrating the recent milestone of 100 years of live entertainment.”
