Broadway in Millburn

I confess I’m often guilty of thinking the only culture in the area resides east of the Hudson. My prejudices were thoroughly undermined this past weekend when I caught a revival of “Les Miserables” at the Paper Mill Playhouse. Less than a mile from our studio in Short Hills, this theatre continually produces shows that equal the best of Broadway. “Les Miserables” was, if anything, better than the production I saw on the east side of the Hudson in the late 80s. And getting home afterwards was a breeze.

  1. Nice to hear. If you know of any cultural spots a little further south, I’m interested (I live in Sayreville, South amboy area). I think Metuchen is quite cosmopolitan–reminds me of Grenwich Village in a way–bookstores, cafes, etc. Short Hills (town) has a nice flavor as well.
