The State Theatre is an old very large theater. Our seats were in middle of the balcony and we felt like we were sitting up in heaven. Try to get seats in the orchestra.

This theatre is very old and is very famous among the local people. It is one of the favourite past times for the people.

Great venue for concerts and regional theater. Reasonably priced (most times), easy to get to and great restaurants in the area. Theater has good acoustics and brings in some really good talent. Hats off to management for booking Regina Spektor. Oldies shows have been excellent.

I have seen a few concerts there and always was pleased with the venue. Regardless that some performers were not so good, lol.

This was a wonderful show. However the staff are only separated from the theater by a curtain so they need to be conscious of this and quiet down during the show.

Very nice and clean place with ole time look, however did not like the fact that they charge NYC theatre district prices for a drink, this is New Brunswick not the City

Right behind the theater is a parking garage that I have found to be the cheapest. $10 for the whole time, not hourly. The theater is on Livingston, make a right onto George St. then take your first right, the parking garage... More
