EXIT 82 CELEBRATING 10 YEARS

EXIT 82 THEATRE PRESENTS THE DROWSY CHAPERONE

Exit 82 Theatre Company opens the Exit 82 Studio Theater on Main Street in Toms River on July 6, 2018 with the company’s revival of the Tony Award winning musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. The space offers a unique, intimate theater experience for its viewers. It is also BYOB for patrons over the age of 21.

“Our hope is for the Exit 82 Studio Theater to become a staple of our community and give a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘community theater,'” says Founder and Executive Producer, Keely Davenport. “We want the Exit 82 Studio Theater to be a place for everyone in our community to not only be entertained but join us to be creative and feel accepted.”

The Drowsy Chaperone features one show-stopping song and dance number after another. In addition, it won five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score.Taking place in a New York apartment, a man takes us through his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on.

The New York Magazine hails it as “The Perfect Broadway Musical.” The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theater genre. Furthermore, “It takes you to another world and it gives you a tune to carry in your head.”

The Drowsy Chaperone runs every weekend in July. This includes Fridays and Saturdays at 8p.m. and Sundays at 2p.m. Tickets are general admission and are $25 for adults and $23 for seniors. Group rates and ADA seating are also available. The Exit 82 Studio Theater is located at 73 Main Street, Toms River, NJ. Tickets on sale now at www.exit82theatre.com.

Millie’s Old World Meatballs and Pizza

Millie’s Old World Meatballs and Pizza of Staten Island

If you weren’t hungry before, you definitely are now!
Millie’s Old World Meatballs and Pizzain Morristown, is now opening a new restaurant in their hometown of Staten Island!

Brothers and founders Vince and Brandon Carrabba grew up in Staten Island and decided to go back home. Their second location, Millie’s of Staten Island is in the Bricktown Center at Charleston (185 Bricktown Way, Staten Island, NY 10309).

The new bistro is described to be “an elevated neighborhood dining destination for families, friends, and couples serving lunch, dinner, and brunch featuring signature coal and wood-fired pizzas, famous meatballs and salads.”

Millie’s of Staten Island is 4,000 sf and has a grand dining area that can hold 85 seats, a pizza counter made for 10 and a fully serviced bar. Their bar will also offer signature cocktails, wine, and beer! But it is the three large garage doors that open up to a 72-seat outdoor patio that really takes the cake pizza.

SR Design Studio helped turn the dream into reality. The restaurant is not like your typical Italian restaurant. Millie’s incorporates unique and contemporary design elements.

The custom made bar is created with blackened steel and LED lights  to create the illusion of coal embers. They also made their hardwood floors to resemble their wood-burning ovens by using Japanese charred cedar wood. Finally, they have breathtaking hand-assembled chain link wall art purchased from Spain featuring Millie’s image.

These are just a few of the aspects that make Millie’s of Staten Island so inviting and intriguing. Now you just have to stop in and see for yourself! Visit MilliesOldWorld.com for more information.
