NEWTON, NJ, 07860




I attended last nights Robin Trower concert with 7 other people. It was my third visit to your theatre. Previously I attended shows by Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Johnny Winter. Some of last nights 7 had been with me at the other shows as well and most of us have been attending concerts since the 70's and still take in quite a few shows around the state each year. The compliment is that everyone of us, from the 16 year old to the 60 year old, think that your venue is outstanding,  in large part because of its size, but also because of the overall relaxed vibe and friendly staff. Sometimes the intangibles are just as important as the show itself and not all of the venues in NJ appear to understand that. Keep up the good work, it is appreciated. 

All the best 


Thanks so much for your help with everything regarding our show. We had a great time playing at Newton Theatre (and hopefully the audience did too!)

I wish every venue could sound as acoustically good as your place. Let me also mention that every one of your staff and sound crew were 'spot on the mark' to make our show work well.

All the best and hope to cross paths with you again soon,

I drove from Manhattan to see Judy Collins at the Newton Theatre last night – yes, all the traffic was going in the opposite direction, and those fools had no idea what they had in their own back yard: intimate venue, phenomenal acoustics, respectful and appreciative audience, helpful staff (they changed my tickets at the last minute to better seats that became available!) and, of course, affordable access to superlative talent.  Judy Collins, at 74, is as strong, touching, talented as ever – and I think some would say even better, if that is possible.  The parking was easy, had a great dinner on the block, and smiled all the way back to Manhattan.  Will definitely continue to make the trek for this quality talent in such a wonderful space.  Keep up the wonderful work you are doing!  And Box Office Karen, if you are reading this, you truly made our evening special and I can’t thank you enough! When I return (and I will), I will find you to personally thank you!


I attended the show Saturday night had a great time, please bring them back. I am Warren county resident having such venue local is wonderful. I appreciate you bringing a phenomenal band like Gaelic Storm to our area.

Dear Newton Theater, I have been to the Newton Theater for 2 shows. I had the opportunity to see Burton Cummings and The Gin Blossoms. Both shows were superb indeed, and the theater is a wonderful venue to see top acts at an affordable, and comfortable setting. I am impressed, and I am coming back for many more shows in the near and distant future. {ie; Dickie Betts, et.al.]   I love the Newton venue for it's easy access, great acoustics, welcoming staff, and clean and pristine surroundings. Thank you so much for providing such fine entertainment. I know many more people who share my sentiment. Keep Kicking Ass!   RICK J.   

Attended the Arlo Guthrie show on Thursday evening. To say the least we had a wonderful time. The show was great and The Theatre is beautiful, and the acoustics were excellent .Last but not least everyone was friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great time. I have already purchased tickets to another show.

I purchased tickets a few weeks ago for the upcoming Glenn Tilbrook show and I'm blown away by the excellent variety of acts you've booked for the Newton Theater.

Newton is a little off the beaten path, so your staff is really doing a wonderful job in attracting great talent to Northwest NJ.

I rocked hard and was home by 11:30 after dropping a friend off. No tolls, no parking fees and great music. You can't go wrong. Enjoy your shows. - John P.  

My wife and I  thoroughly enjoyed the Beatlemania concert this past Saturday evening. We cannot wait for our next Newton Theatre experience.  Keep the thrills coming.

Please bring these guys back! We'll drive from CT again!

Dear Newton Theatre,

Thank you so much for hosting the Fixx last night in your cozy, intimate venue. Last night was my first time in Newton and my first time visiting the theatre and it was a fun experience all around. The show was great; we loved the music (the Fixx never disappoint!) and the theatre. I live an hour and 40 minutes away (Plainsboro), but it was definitely worth the trip. We will definitely keep an eye on your calendar and for any other shows we might be able to attend. Perhaps we'll see you again soon!

Thanks again,

Glenn P.

Hello, I attended the Richard Marx concert at the theatre last night.  Let me first say that it was an absolutely amazing show.  I have been a huge fan of Richard Marx ever since he released Don't Mean Nothing from his first, self-titled album.  He was truly terrific last night, and I hope he will come back again.

Thank you very much,

Thanks so much for the Graham Parker show it was great!

Let's make it a yearly thing.

Hello Newton Theatre, 

I attended the Graham Parker and the Rumour Show last Friday night.  Just wanted to tell you how much I loved your theatre.  Having been to many, many, many concerts, in lots of different theaters, I think yours was the best.  It had the best seats, the best sound, everything about it was great.  I live just outside Philadelphia, so it was a 2 hour ride for me, and I just wanted to tell you how much I loved the Theatre.  I've been to The Keswick, Sellersville, and of course the Tower (all in and around Philly) and Newton is now my favorite.  Can't say when I'll be back, but I've told all my NJ co workers - many of whom live in your neck of the woods, how great it was.  

Well done!


We were glad we came to see Bruce in the USA what a show -it was fantastic- Loved it and would come back and see them again. He looked and acted like Bruce and put his heart and soul into that show. The real Bruce would have been pleased. Thank you for bringing them to Newton.


A bunch of us that graduated in 75 from Wayne…… got together and saw Christopher Cross……he was fantastic…The music was not to loud, and he interacted with the audience……It was just fantastic…..I want to give a Big Thank You to the person who turned a small town movie theater into a great concert place…..a place that people can afford,  I have purchased other tickets for other events and so have the others that came with me……cant wait to see Bobby Collins…..Thank You again…..

Wow, attended a great concert Sat night with The Bacon Brothers, front row seats and felt like an intimate show!  They were great, the sound system was excellent, and the Newton Theatre looks marvelous.  We had the best time we’ve had in years (we don’t get out much J).  Looks like you have fantastic acts coming, and we can’t wait to come and see another terrific show!

 Thank you!

Just wanted to tell you how much my husband and I enjoyed the John Denver Experience and Travis Tritt. What great shows!

Would love to see Gordon Lightfoot again; he was at the Sussex VoTech a few years ago; just a suggestion.

Will come to see as many shows as budget allows - tough times, but this is worth every cent.

Jon Anderson was amazing. We had a great time and it brought back many memories. Thanks to the ownership team at the Newton Theatre and many many hopes and best wishes for more shows like this.

John J.  

I was in a balcony seat and had an awesome experience. Jon (Anderson) was so much fun, great energy at the show, and the theater itself is a really terrific venue - literally not a bad seat in the house! I'll definitely be back for more shows.

It was unbelievable. Front row - felt like we were in our living room. :)

Eileen O.

We attended this event and it was absolutely WONDERFUL.

Huge John Denver fan here and this concert was a great tribute to him.

Your work on the theater has made it a great place to see a show!

Will continue to see what events are coming so we can come back again!

Hello: I wanted to drop you this email to say how much I loved tonight's A Christmas Carol.  I kept looking over at the kids and their parents and we were all loving it.  I would definitely recommend inviting them back again next year and I hope you get other emails doing likewise.  Even though I'm 51 and seeing this sans kids (I'm an A Christmas Carol affecienado), I had a fantastic time!

To Whom and All it may concern,

Really enjoyed the John Denver Tribute last Sunday 12-11-11,  featuring Ted Vigil and crew. Randy, who played bass, is a regular in local bands (I live in Jefferson) and was fantastic with Ted's band! He's a great guy too and I saw several of the "Scoot on Down" band he plays with in the audience enjoying the show! I saw our Lake Shawnee Club's previous board

president also. And a couple that moved to Newton a few years ago were there as well.

Small world! But that's a BIG reason why The Newton Theatre is soooo wonderful!

"It's a gathering zone not far from home."

I'd like to make it a regular thing to visit and enjoy again and again!

I absolutely love what you have done or preserved at the Newton Theatre! I went to see movies for years.....years ago there, and am so glad it is still active and looking good!

I wish you all the luck continuing to keep things going and I for one am glad I'm on your

e-mail list so I can come see more shows....soon!  Might make it to the Joey and Rory country duo my wife likes a lot and I'd love to tag along with her.

I enjoyed the Ted Vigil / John Denver Tribute so much,

if he comes back I'll be there again for sure. 

Thank you very much for making The Newton Theatre a fine, yet still country classic venue, for all of us to enjoy, and I hope it lasts and lasts long into the future!

Enjoy and Peace,

Bill C.

Just want to say:  I went with my husband and some friends to the Kashmir show on Saturday!  It was PHENOMENAL!   We had such a great time.   Thanks for having them there.  I hope it was a successful event for you and perhaps you'll have them there again! 

I am looking forward to attending more events at The Newton Theater.

Thanks again!
