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.

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!

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.

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!

Parking at McCarter

Construction is happening around McCarter for Princeton University’s Arts & Transit project and the expansion of the Lewis Center for the Arts. This has an impact on parking, traffic and transit in and around McCarter.
