New Jersey’s favorite theaters are closed for at least two more months due to COVID-19 statewide shutdowns but you can still watch performances from the comfort of your couch. 


Here’s what some of our favorite venues are up to:

Every day, NJPAC will be posting new performances from its NJPAC in Your Living Room page. From jazz and dance to kids’ shows, classical and theatrical performances, NJPAC will post new performances every day on its site and on social media.

MAYO will be hosting concerts via Facebook live every Friday. The first featuring Acute Inflections debuted on Friday, April 10 at 12:30 pm. If you can’t make the live stream, it will be available to view anytime on Facebook and MAYO’s website. Next Friday, April 17, MAYO will present Lauren Davidson.

Every Wednesday on Facebook, MAYO will be premiering a Music Beyond Borders concert from years past at 12:30 pm. The venue has also added a brand-new MPAC Presents genre to its Virtual Arts page, where you will find performances from MAYO’s archives and new content each week. You can also access links to concerts, theatre productions, kids’ music classes and more.
