Free Event at Loew’s Jersey This Sunday
JERSEY CITY, NJ — This Sunday afternoon, November 21 at 2:00, the Loew’s Jersey Theatre, at Journal Square in Jersey City, NJ, will be open FREE to the public for a live performance of IOLANTHE by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan, presented by the Ridgewood Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company.
This will be the Ridgewood Company’s seventh semi-annual visit to the Loew’s, presenting the comic operas of Gilbert & Sullivan fully staged with costumes, scenery and a 23-piece orchestra playing Sullivan’s original orchestrations.
Our first visit, in November 2001, was the first opera or musical theatre performance to be presented at the Loew’s in several decades. No tickets or reservations are needed—just come and enjoy the show, and be knocked out by the beauty of the restoration work the Friends of the Loew’s organization has done to bring this magnificent house back to life. There is direct subway service from New York City via the PATH train to Journal Square station.
