State Theatre Nj Tickets & Upcoming Events

State Theatre was designed and constructed by the late "Thomas W. Lamb", who was a prominent graduate of the Cooper Union’s School of Architecture. It could accommodate eighteen hundred people. The doors to the theatre were first opened during December 1921 and the theatre used to be managed by "Walter Reade", thus known as "Reade’s State Theatre" initially. The very first audience was entertained with five vaudeville performances, which included an orchestra and an adaptation of "The Star Spangled Banner". The widely popular silent movie starring William Hart called "White Oak" was also screened. The pleasant combination of both film and live productions proved to be an enthralling glee while the interior was commended for creating a soothing ambience for the audience.

Within a few years, the management of the theatre was transferred to the B. F. Keith Group, which is the leading vaudeville-booking corporation of the eastern world. In 1924, the B.F. Keith Group collaborated with the leading theatre vaudeville-booking corporation of the western world called Orpheum. Therefore, the theatre came under the control of "Keith-Albee-Orpheum". In 1928, the Radio Corporation of America purchased this agency and hence, the theatre became an ancillary company of "Radio-Keith-Orpheum (RKO)".

The 1960s mark the beginning of an unfortunate era for the theatre. The rising popularity of television and cinema diverted the attention of spectators away from histrionic circuits.  The fiscal losses incurred due to the sharp decrease in the audience caused RKO to sell the building off to "Carl Wohl" and "Jeffrey Gerstein" in 1972. The building became home to pornographic films and gained notoriety. However, the New Brunswick Cultural Center purchased the theatre in 1986 and sought to regain the lost grandeur. The interior was repaired extensively and the technical aspects were updated, which is why the theatre was able to return to projecting the original decent forms of entertainment in 1988. Recently, in 2003, the management recruited professionals from prestigious architectural corporations to research on the building and subsequently, refurbish it to the structure articulated by "Thomas Lamb" decades ago.

Today State Theatre NJ is a venue that can boast of having hosted performances by venerated celebrities such as Aretha Franklin, Jay Leno, Yo Yo Mama and Johnny Mathis. Moreover, it can also claim to be one of the few theatres that offer entertainment through such a wide range of genres. So acquire your own State Theatre NJ tickets if you wish to be exhilarated by a series of riveting performances and captivated by its antediluvian architecture bearing a contemporary trifle.
