Introducing NJPAC in Your Living Room

A message from NJPAC’s Executive Producer and Executive Vice President, David Rodriguez:

In this unprecedented time of uncertainty, we need the joy and the connection the performing arts can bring us, more than we ever have before.

You can’t come to NJPAC because you’re staying home to “flatten the curve” and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

All of us who work at the Arts Center are doing the same thing. I am at this moment sitting in my family room with a laptop, a diet Coke and three rescue dogs, trying to figure out our next steps.

And here’s the first one: You can’t come to NJPAC right now. But we can bring the magic of NJPAC to you, right here.

Every day, we’ll be posting new performances to this website for you to enjoy while you’re at home. Check back on this page, or follow our social media channels, to see what new work we’re sharing. We’ll be posting daily.

You’ll find throwbacks to exceptional NJPAC concerts of years past, new work and conversations with some of our favorite artists, filmed performances of NJPAC-commissioned works, and even performances by our Arts Education students and Community Engagement partners.

If you have ideas of things we can bring to you–outside of hand sanitizer and toilet paper –we’re happy to listen and try to make those performances happen. That’s what we do!

We’re calling this online series NJPAC in Your Living Room, and we’re excited to show you some of the amazing performances we’ve already lined up.

So please keep checking this page for the kind of world-class performing arts NJPAC has always been proud to bring to New Jersey. We’ll keep bringing you these virtual concerts until we can welcome you back to our stages in person.

Remember: This is just intermission. We’ll see you again soon.
