"Midnight Madness": An Original Musical by NJYT

Midnight Madness Teaser

This summer, New Jersey Youth Theatre (NJYT) is presenting an original musical, Midnight Madness, a re-imagining of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, transporting Shakespeare’s work to a contemporary urban landscape.  Performances will run from July 20- August 6 at the Wharton Institute for the Performing Arts at 60 Locust Avenue in Berkeley Heights, NJ. 

Midnight Madness is a rollicking romp set in present-day Manhattan with politics in play. Based on A Midsummer Night's Dream, the incumbent Republican Mayor of Manhattan, about to marry his Democratic opponent, finds himself in a fantastical conflict of events, involving two pairs of lost lovers, a troupe of amateur actors from Queens and a power outage in Manhattan, all mischievously manipulated by none other than Puck and the Fairies of Central Park. The result: a hilarious storyline of mistaken identities, comic confusion and sheer charm set to a glorious, original score.

This is a family show that is appropriate for all ages. All children under age 13 must be accompanied by an adult. With a lush and catchy score by Jack Bender and charming and inventive lyrics and book by Cynthia Meryl, the result is a silly, madcap, jovial romp whose audiences will leave the theatre in great cheer.

For general NJYT information, go to www.njyouththeatre.org or call 908-233-3200.  Visit us at our facebook page: facebook.com/njyouththeatre to learn more about the show and for tickets go to https://whartonarts.myboxoffice.us/program/midnight-madness-1039.

U.S. Air Traffic Control Isn’t Working; Here's How to Fix it

September 7, 2017

For over 30 years the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has tried – and failed –to modernize America’s woefully dysfunctional air traffic control system (ATC). It is time to get ATC out from under the thumbs of federal bureaucrats and partisan politicians, and create a completely new structure that will get U.S. air traffic moving.

American ATC is stuck in the 1950s.

New Providence fit our criteria. I still remember the strong impression I had when we found our first house on Hawthorne Drive; I knew we ...
