The New York Theater Guide remarked Surflight Theater.

On Monday, the publication declared Surflight one of “the best theaters in New Jersey to visit.”

“New York has more theater and activity than one person could ever hope to experience, but sometimes we all need a break from the city,” Gillian Russo wrote for the publication, perhaps reflecting on the sweltering heat developing on the streets of the Big Apple. in summer. “You might find yourself among the many people who hop on NJ Transit for a quick city getaway – and if not, this is a great option. The state has scenic towns, boardwalks and bustling beaches, and everything in between with a different vibe from the concrete jungle.

“But even on vacation, you might still want to get your theater fix, and New Jersey has you covered there, too. We’ve rounded up some of the best places to visit across the state, so you can find something nearby no matter where you go in New Jersey. Together, these offerings are as diverse as the city’s, whether you’re looking to see a hit musical, a daring new play, or a show the whole family will love.

The publication then listed seven theater companies statewide. Here is what he said about Surflight:

“Do some theater on your beach getaway!” Long Beach Island is a must-visit vacation spot, but it’s also a great summer theater spot thanks to the Surflight Theater. If you can’t get enough of the ocean and sand during the day, spend the night watching a production right by the beach. Surflight offers high-energy, feel-good musicals — its 2022 season includes “Legally Blonde” and “Escape to Margaritaville” — to keep the fun going on your vacation.

As an additional endorsement, New York Theater Guide only posted one photo to go along with their story: a photo from Surflight Theatre.

Surflight is also getting a boost from WJLP, the Middletown Township television station that broadcasts the classic MeTV television network in the New York area. In the afternoon, amid shows such as “The Waltons,” “Gunsmoke,” and “Bonanza,” he bursts in with short segments from New Jersey News. When a new Surflight show is about to open – whether it’s a main stage or a children’s theater – it makes an announcement during an info break.

So, once again, Surflight Theater – and LBI – are brought to the attention of New Yorkers and residents of North Jersey. –RM
