I like to think of George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick as the state’s equivalent of a cool off-Broadway theater where interesting, fun, thoughtful shows are staged and the unexpected happens.
If that entices you, take advantage of the today-only $20 ticket discount in honor of artistic director David Saint’s 20th anniversary with the professional regional theater. Under his guidance GSP has become a theater that takes chances, mounts new work and sends shows into NYC.

Here’s the season so far. The final play, TBA never fails to please.
October 18 – November 6,
Marguerite Oswald was domineering, obsessive and desperate in her need to be loved by her younger son, Lee Harvey. A chilling glimpse into what may have happened in the Oswald household in the months leading up to that fateful November morning in Dallas.
November 29 – December 24
A witty and winsome young woman`s wishes are answered when an anonymous gentleman she nicknames Daddy Long Legs gives her the opportunity to leave her orphanage and attend university. In return, Jerusha shares her life with her unknown benefactor through treasured letters as she grows into an intelligent and independent woman and experiences a budding romance with a young suitor. This heartwarming new musical has charmed audiences of all ages from London to New York.
Jamal`s mother and her estranged husband rush to the police station when their son`s car has been pulled over. With no explanation forthcoming and emotions building, this highly-charged drama twists, turns and builds to an explosive conclusion.
March 21 – April 9
Liam is a self-proclaimed “bad Jew” – and he may actually be an atheist. It is the night after his grandfather`s funeral, and Liam and his cousin Daphna are arguing over who should inherit “Poppy`s” Chai necklace. The verbal battle rages until Liam stakes claim to the necklace, and a vicious and hilarious brawl about family, faith and legacy begins.
To be Announced
May 2 – 21
The season will be rounded out by a fifth play yet to be selected. Under consideration for the final slot a new musical comedy based on a popular film, a new play by a comedy legend, and a recent Broadway hit!
