Amidst bare walls and yet-to-be-installed floors, a splatter of nails and stacks of sheet rock, George Street Playhouse Artistic Director David Saint said he is very excited about the theater’s inaugural season in its new home.

The five-play season is sandwiched by two new musicals and also features a one-woman comedy starring an Oscar nominee and Emmy winner, a suspense thriller based on a bestselling novel, and a world-premiere historical drama.

From one of the two stages of the soon-to-open New Brunswick Performing Center, Saint shared on Tuesday how the hi-tech, already-in-demand venue is a dream come true for him and a 45-year-old company that always has performed in converted spaces.

“For years, I've had this dream, and today it’s finally coming true,” said Saint, clad in a construction hard hat that contrasted his fine black suit and red pocket square.
