Culture By the Bundle

You don't have to go into New York City to find premium arts and entertainment, New Jersey has plenty to offer—and most of it without the stiff NYC price tag.

Don’t let snobbish New Yorkers claim that their city is the only hotbed of culture in the tristate area. From north to south, Jersey has plenty to offer in arts and entertainment—and most of it without the stiff New York price tag. For a really affordable dose of theater or music, seek out subscription series, which bundle a number of performances for a fraction of the cost—and throw in extra perks. For example, the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey in Madison offers a six-show package that saves subscribers 42 percent off regular ticket prices. Symphony in C Orchestra in Camden invites series ticket holders to preconcert gatherings with music director Rossen Milanov. Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg, the New Jersey Repertory Company in Long Branch, Centenary Stage Company in Hackettstown and the New Sussex Symphony in Sussex County are among other Garden State cultural institutions with notable subscription series. Check out your favorite companies to find out what they offer. Or visit for discounted tickets to one-time events.
