Whether you're captivated by a Broadway production, stirred by the sultry sounds of a jazz festival or inspired by a contemporary art exhibition, New Jersey's arts and cultural venues take center stage.


World-class artists and performers amaze audiences at prominent theaters and facilities throughout the state, which offer a lively menu of creative entertainment.


Top national and international artists make New Jersey a key stop along their tours. Whether it is the acoustically superb, 2,750-seat Prudential Hall at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden or Atlantic City’s 11 resort hotels, every region of the state offers venues featuring the world’s best entertainers.


But New Jersey is more than big productions. Nationally known theaters dot the landscape from the Skylands to the Southern Shore.


All around the state, there’s an eclectic array of music, dance and theatrical productions at venues like the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn or the Surflight Theatre on Long Beach Island.


Whether it's Broadway-quality plays, concerts, dance or music, New Jersey is the "state of the arts."
