bergenPAC presents An Evening with John Cusack and Screening of "Better Off Dead"

(ENGLEWOOD, NJ) -- THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED -- Bergen Performing Arts Center (bergenPAC) presents An Evening with John Cusack on Friday, January 26, 2024 at 8:00pm. With an impressive body of work spanning the course of three decades, John Cusack has evolved into one of Hollywood’s most accomplished and respected actors of his generation, garnering both critical acclaim as well as prestigious accolades for his dramatic and comedic roles. He will take the bergenPAC stage to talk about his career after screening his 1985 comedy Better Off Dead.

Cusack was most recently seen in the Amazon’s SciFi series, “Utopia,” in which he stars as Dr. Kevin Christie, a charismatic, media-savvy, and brilliant biotech mind who wants to change the world through science.

He first gained the attention of audiences by starring in a number of 1980’s film classics such as The Sure Thing, Say Anything and Sixteen Candles. Following these roles, Cusack successfully shed his teen-heartthrob image by demonstrating his ability to expand his film repertoire by starring in a wide range of dramas, thrillers and comedies including The Grifters, Eight Men Out, Being John Malkovich, High Fidelity and Grosse Pointe Blank. Some of his other feature film credits include: Hot Tub Time Machine, War Inc., Grace Is Gone. The Ice Harvest, Runaway Jury, Identity, The Thin Red Line, Con Air, City Hall, Bullets Over Broadway, and Stand By Me.

Tickets range from $55-$105 and are available for purchase online starting Friday, July 21, 2023 at 11:00am. Bergen Performing Arts Center (bergenPAC) is located at 30 North Van Brunt Street in Englewood, New Jersey.  

Founded in 2003, the 1,367-seat bergenPAC, is the area’s cultural mecca. Housed in a historic Art Deco-style theater boasting one of the finest acoustic halls in the United States, bergenPAC attracts a stellar roster of world-class entertainment. The jewel in our crown is The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC – the innovative, educational performing arts initiative that, through programs, classes, outreach, school shows, and main theater presented shows, reach more than 30,000 students and community youth annually. The Performing Arts School provides community youth, age 2 months to 21 years, with unique, “hands-on” training in music, dance and theater by industry professionals. It is through the ongoing generosity of sponsors, donors, members, and patrons that the not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation bergenPAC and The Performing Arts School are able to thrive and enrich our community.
