Five Mile Lake - May 1-31, 2015

Visit the Five Mile Lake website

With exquisite care, Rachel Bonds paints a moving portrait of a group of young people, yearning to make the right choices—and facing the choices they have already made—as they journey into their thirties in a rapidly transforming world. Don’t miss this funny, tender, and heart-wrenching play about those who stay, and those who go away.


Conrad Tao, piano - April 21, 2015

If you’re wondering about the “next generation” of gifted artists who are shaping the future of classical music, you need look no further than Conrad Tao. At only 19, this pianist/composer/violinist defines the word wunderkind. Like his counterpart Mozart, he is a true triple threat and started as a piano prodigy giving his first solo recital at the age of four.


America's Got Downton - April 22, 2015
And indeed it does, or rather, vice-versa. The Downton Abbey craze has captivated PBS audiences for five seasons now, but while you were watching and waiting, the folks who brought us Potted Potter have done it again! This time, it’s a one-man tour-de-force parody of the whole Downton saga in which Impressionist Luke Kempner creates more than 30 characters, blending celebrity visitors with your familiar favorites from the series. Cultures clash and eras hilariously collide to help the cast save the estate from financial ruin—again!

Mike Super – Magic & Illusion - April 20, 2015
Through spectacular illusions and his own inimitable down-to-earth style, Mike Super has pioneered a new form of magic that transcends the "trick." As the winner of NBC’s hit TV show Phenomenon, Mike is the only magician in history to win a LIVE magic competition on primetime U.S. network television and voted America's Favorite Mystifier! He creates an interactive magic experience where you don’t just watch the magic; you become part of it!

The Matthews Theatre Auditorium

The magnificent 1100 seat Matthews Theatre , located in the main building, was recently renovated thanks to the generosity of Princeton University . The new handcrafted imported lighting fixtures, rich velvet covered seats, new carpeting, and a welcoming color scheme, maintain the original dignity and charm of the 75 year old house. The auditorium, which includes Premium Orchestra, Front and Rear Orchestra, Front and Rear Balcony, and Box/Grand Tier sections, has superb acoustics and sightlines from any seat and boasts state-of-the-art computerized sound and lighting systems. Some of the greatest performers in the world have graced this stage including such artists as James Stewart, George Balanchine, Lucille Ball, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr., The Grateful Dead, Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Dustin Hoffman, Bruce Springsteen, Arthur Miller, and Luciano Pavarotti, just to name a few.


auditorium-berlind

The Berlind Theatre Auditorium

This dynamic new contemporary 360-seat performance space, which opened for McCarter’s 2003-2004 season, was designed by award-winning architect Hugh Hardy. The auditorium features stepped stadium seating that allows excellent visibility of the stage from all seats for an intimate and unique theatrical experience. Rows are lettered A through Q, so every location is equivalent to sitting in the front orchestra in the Matthews theater, and are numbered in the same way as the Matthews. There are 4 entrances on two levels and two center aisles with handrails to ease the flow of patrons locating their seats. 


the-room

The Room in the Berlind

The Berlind Theatre also houses a large rehearsal hall that doubles as a 75-seat flexible performance space. New, experimental, and works in process are presented during the course of the season in this theater-within-a-theater. These readings and small productions are open to the general public free or at a nominal ticket price.


The lockwood and west lobbies

The Matthews Theatre has two beautiful and spacious lobbies that can accommodate groups wishing to host a fundraiser, reception, or celebration in conjunction with a theater performance. Please refer to the GROUP SERVICES section of the website for more details.
