All the Days - Apr 29 - May 29, 2016

Visit our All the Days website

There's nothing worse than family...and nothing better. Miranda has done everything in her power to create a life completely different than the one she came from. But a week before a family celebration, Miranda suffers a lapse of judgment and invites her deliciously eccentric and overbearing mother to come stay. With all the kin in one place, will they all stay in one piece? This heartfelt and hilarious world premiere is about a family of very funny people in the midst of loss, love, and forgiveness.

The Princeton Festival presents
Peter Grimes
- June 18, 23, 26
Peter Grimes, Benjamin Britten’s first full-scale opera, is quite simply, a masterpiece: an opera of immense dramatic force communicated through powerful and evocative music. Its story explores themes of alienation and the fate of the antihero by pitting a conflicted dreamer against a village that rejects and persecutes him. Like many other great operas it is a tragedy, yet audiences find it uniquely satisfying due to the haunting beauty of its music and its insight into the human psyche.

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.
