The largest gifts in George Street Playhouse history — totaling $7.75 million — will be recognized with the naming of the new Elizabeth Ross Johnson Theater and the Arthur Laurents Theater.
Moreover, the recently announced gifts will help further solidify the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center as a premier center for the performing arts in the state.
Chris Paladino, president of New Brunswick Development Corp. and the developer of the $172 million NBPAC, said the gifts represent another milestone moment for the arts in the city.
“This is an exciting moment for NBPAC and the city of New Brunswick,” he said. “NBPAC continues to deliver on its promise to transform New Brunswick’s Downtown Cultural Arts District.”
