Broad Street Review
NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS OUTSIDE, YOU ALWAYS HAVE FAMILY.
It’s the summer of 1967, and the songs of Motown are breaking records and breaking barriers. Chelle and her brother, Lank, are running an unlicensed after-hours joint out of their basement—risky business—especially during a brutal police crackdown that has set off riots throughout the city. When Lank offers refuge to a mysterious stranger, he and Chelle clash. Pent-up emotions erupt, and they must navigate the chaos both outside and within.
As of March 1, the shuttle between the train station and McCarter is no longer running.
The Dinky train service from Princeton Junction to Princeton is suspended until Spring 2019. NJ Transit is providing substitute bus service. Buses will depart Princeton station 15 minutes prior to the scheduled train departure time. View updated bus schedule.
