I concur 100% with the reviews below. Absolutely the worst performance ever. Whomever allowed this to go on the way it did should be replaced immediately. Total waste of our hard earned money...

The theater is a 5 star! My family and I have made it a traditional to see a Christmas carol every year.This products of Christmas carol was a 2 at best,2 for the amazing costumes.They turned a classic into a politically correct nightmare. Scrooge was played by a woman that didn't have the energy or bitterness,they cut out most of the wonderful singing and dancing at the nephews Christmas party and tiny Tim and Scrooge's story all a thing of the past just to modernize a classic!
It is a small scale theater that I visited first time to see Seong-Jin Cho’s recital. It is located in a very convenient place where parking lots are free after 5 pm and the last station of NJ transit (Princeton). The staff was very polite and helpful. A staff guided me to my seat by herself, which I appreciated very much.
We've enjoyed a lot of great shows here. They have also been vigilant about following best COVID-19 protocol, including their encouragement of indoor masking. The latest show we saw was done by the 1491s, an incredible collaboration and one of the few plays led by Indigenous creators and cast. Definitely makes me much more loyal to MaCarter.
Beware there is no elevator. It is a historical theater and it is a treasure. Centrally located, but planning dinner in one of the only two neighboring restaurants nearby can be stressful as many others have the same idea. We will be back for Bruce Hornsby ANY DAY!
Cute little theater. Parking gets crowded easily but it’s not too bad if you get there a little early. Seating is nice and view of the stage seems like it’d be good from majority of the theater. Now for my standard COVID comments as of December 2022. No one is really wearing or required to wear masks. Since it’s indoors and everyone sits next to each other, I would keep this in mind if you have any legit concerns. Otherwise, it was comfortable enough to sit and enjoy the show with my mask on.
