NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – This week brings the beginning of March, mild temperatures, and a bit of rain. But there are plenty of indoor activities and events to do in New Brunswick, so the rain’s no excuse not to get out and enjoy the town.

Thursday, Feb. 29 through Sunday, Mar. 4

  • The Cabaret Theatre presents the 2001 Neil LaBute play “The Shape of Things.” This drama explores what we give up for love, what we risk for art, and how similar these two things can be. Centered around a young student, his dynamic relationship with a captivating graduate art student, and his best friend’s turbulent engagement, this play is a curious study into modern-day relationships and all the beauty and ugliness that comes with them. The play will be shown March 1st at 9:00 p.m., March 2nd at 8:00 p.m., March 3rd at 8:00 p.m., and March 4th at 7:00 p.m. Tickets for Rutgers students, staff, and senior citizens (60+) are $8.00 and tickets for the general public are $12.
