“The center’s two high spots are its two theaters. (The 2,750-seat) Prudential Hallis breathtakingly glamorousclassical in form and spirit: four-tiered and horseshoe-shaped, glittering with light. The color scheme varies slightly from the traditional red and gold. There’s red galore, but in place of gilded plaster, the tiers are faced with panels of beautiful golden wood(the) stage and auditorium have been combined into one warm, embracing room. The region has not seen as fabulous a new hall since Philip Johnson’s New York State Theater opened its doors three decades ago.” — Herbert Muschamp, The New York Times
“The 514-seat Victoria Theater is a gem of more modest size and cut. (It is) a smoky amethyst of a room, with walls of gray and rose brick and seating upholstered in an iridescent fabric that shifts in tone from green to plum.” — Herbert Muschamp, The New York Times
The Chase Room
The elegant, intimate Chase Room, which boasts a fabulous view of the City’s skyline, is home to NJPAC’s popular Cabaret performance series.
