Prudential Hall at New Jersey Performing Arts Center History

Prudential Hall at New Jersey Performing Arts Center is the largest of the four theaters in the NJPAC. The complex was opened in 1997 and had since become one of the most integral parts of the New Jersey arts community. The New Jersey Performing Arts Center is home to one of the largest arts education programs in the country in addition to hosting performing arts events. The edifice was constructed as part of an attempt to revitalize Newark which is the largest city in New Jersey but has had serious financial and social struggles in the past several years. If you are looking for something great to do in the Newark area, head out to the NJPAC.

New York City

Located in Newark, Prudential Hall at New Jersey Performing Arts Center is not far from New York City. If you are looking to see the best theater in the world, New York is the place to be. Theaters are abundant in the city both on Broadway and off, and if you somehow tire of the theater scene there are plenty of museums like the MoMA to explore, along with countless music venues offering a wide variety of live music. Of course visiting New York landmarks like the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Central Park, and the Empire State Building is a must for any first time visitor. If you are a sports fan there are several professional sports teams playing exciting games all over the city. Catch a baseball game courtesy of the New York Yankees or the Mets, or a basketball game by the New York Knicks or the Brooklyn Nets. Hockey is also a big deal when the New York Rangers are playing at Madison Square Garden, and home NFL games of the New York Jets or Giants are just a short ride away.

As the largest theater at the NJPAC, Prudential Hall is able to hold 2,800 guests.
