I went to the Kirby theater to see tartuffe. It was a great play. I have a subscription and there are very few plays that disappoint. The theater itself is nice. It's intimate. there are only 10 rows of seats so there isn't a bad seat in the house. You should definitely check it out

I have been coming to these theater productions for more than twenty years with five other friends. Only some of the plays are by Shakespeare. All of the plays are carefully directed with an attention to detail. The sets enhance every production and I would come for the sets alone. The majority of the actors are equity often coming out from New York. I have another theater series in New York but I drive from Bergen County to Madison and would give up my New York series before I would ever give this up. It's a small theater with no bad seats. The Tuesday night after play discussion puts the play and theater in context.

I can't say enough good things about the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey. There's not a bad seat in the house, parking is abundant and free, and the productions themselves rival anything I've seen on Broadway.
