The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey continues its summer season with George Bernard Shaw's comedy Arms and the Man. Arms and the Man performances continue through August 1.

For tickets or more information, call the box office at 973-408-5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org.

Associate Artistic Director Joe Discher directs.

Shaw's 1894 comedic "confection" remains one of the world's most beloved plays. The story's hero, the sensible and war-weary "chocolate cream soldier," is the catalyst for a hilarious and, in Shaw's own words, "delightful firecracker of a play" which explodes the romantic notions of love, war and heroic sentiment.

With the opening of Arms and the Man, Shaw was recognized as a great wit and the play became his first commercial success. A prolific playwright, Shaw went on to write a number of witty and pithy social comedies including Candida, Misalliance, Pygmalion, Major Barbara and Mrs. Warren's Profession.
