This spring, as winter melts away, it’s time to rekindle your love for theatre and music. We’ve already begun doing our homework and have jotted down a few amazing shows that we are super excited to watch. From period dramas to delightful comedies and live music performances, we are all set to enjoy a fantastic spring season. If you’re a planner and want to know what the months ahead look like for your social schedule, check out this list of amazing shows playing at theaters in NJ that we are dying to watch!
What better way to begin the new season than with a timeless thought? The Chaperone, set during the Jazz Age of America, is a show about two very different women and their growth. Travelling to New York together, the two women set out on a journey of love and friendship like no other, proving that no matter what minds you are surrounded by, it is more than possible for you to be true to yourself and be independent. Women empowerment is never a stale topic, especially when it talks of the past. So, ring up all your girlfriends and watch The Chaperone with them!
Nelly Mckay’s Live Performance
After 5 great hits comes Nelly McKay’s sixth and most anticipated album, Sister Orchid. Unlike all of her other albums, this one was made in total solitude and according to Nelly, it comes from a dark place within her. Based on her previous work, and on hearing this, we are anticipating a great set of tracks that will certainly inspire heartfelt emotion in the audience. We can’t think of a better way to snap out of our winter reverie and launch ourselves into spring with full flow. Bring a date along to a concert they’ll never forget!
