When people think of the state of New Jersey the words art or film might not necessarily be the first thing that comes to their minds. The state of New Jersey is known for many other things after all. Some of those things include its world class university Rutgers University which has produced famous alumni such as the Dominican American author and professor Junot Diaz who is famous for his book This Is How You Lose Her and for being awarded a MacArthur Genius prize. Most people probably associate filmmaking and art with the capitol of New Jersey’s neighboring state, New York City.
While New Jersey is home to one of the best institutions of higher education in the country it is also home to many cities and towns that have strong artistic traditions of their own. New Jersey’s creative roots go far back in history. For instance the State Theatre, a theatre that is based in Middlesex County, is actually a throwback to the early days of vaudeville in the 1920s. Nearly one hundred years later the State Theatre continues to be an incubator for artistic activities in its local community.
Like many other venues the State Theatre serves as a place where traveling performers such as ballet dancers, modern dancers, classical musicians and comedians can come and wow local audiences in New Jersey with their work. The State Theatre has hosted performers such as Brad Garrett, Brit Floyd, Regina Spektor and the National Acrobats and Artists of China. The State Theatre is more than just a setting for professional artists and performers, it is also a space that opens itself up to the community. In 2016 the theatre went back to screening a collection of six movies for the general public. In partnership with a local business that is known as Boraie Development, LLC the theatre was able to offer these movies to the public free of charge. This community event was expected to reach more than 7,000 members of the local community according to the website New Jersey Stage due to the financial assistance that Boraie Development LLC offered the theatre.
