Cool! Whenever I am in a new city I try to stop by some of the theatres in town to see what the theatre scene in that city is like. A few of these theatres on the list have not even heard of. One theatre that really caught my eye was the Paper Mill Playhouse. The article describes it as: “This 1,200-seat theatre has quite the reputation! Nestled in Millburn, New Jersey, the Paper Mill frequently brings in some of Broadway’s best performers due to its close proximity to New York City. Plus, the state theatre of New Jersey has premiered musicals such as “Honeymoon in Vegas,” a little-known show called “Newsies” and, currently, “Bandstand,” starring Laura Osnes and Corey Cott.” I have never been to New Jersey. But I think maybe it is time to take a trip up to the northeast and explore as many theatres up there as I can.
