Mile Square Theatre Artistic Director Chris O’Connor says, “Since March 2020, we have only been able to produce virtual work, and we are excited to finally get back to presenting live performance. We are grateful for the support of the Hoboken Business Alliance. Both the HBA and MST see these performances as a celebration of our city returning to the vibrant state it was before the pandemic. We hope to see many local residents—as well as out-of-town visitors—come out to see the shows and enjoy Hoboken’s wonderful restaurants and businesses. Hoboken is back and it’s better than ever. There hasn’t been a better time to visit Hoboken and enjoy what it has to offer.”

Greg Dell’Aquila, the President of the HBA agrees. “Hoboken has always been a great place to dine, shop, and stroll the waterfront. Now we are quickly becoming a great city to see art and theatre as well! Mile Square Theatre’s free outdoor performances are pure joy, and the Hoboken Business Alliance is thrilled to support these outdoor theatre events. Visitors and residents alike will be wowed by Shakespeare in the Sinatra Park Amphitheatre as well as world-class dance and storytelling performances at the 7th and Jackson Plaza. There is something for everyone!”
