NY&NJ Events/Shows/Reviews

Events in the New York City/New Jersey Area
We have some of the greatest entertainment in the world!

Though it is beyond the scope or purpose of this site to list all events as there are so many of them, here are some of the best sites to find the most updated lists. To get you started:

In New York City:








www.theatermania.com - great site for discounts

For tickets to shows filmed in New York City:


In New Jersey: 

Bergen.com  - http://events.bergen.com/ or find your SpinGo or Zvents network.

I would also suggest two local bookstores that have many celebrity and sports appearances:
Bookends in Ridgewood, NJ -  http://www.book-ends.com/
Books and Greeting in Northvale, NJ http://www.booksandgreetings.com/

For Local Live Theater in NJ, see the home page. Anywhere else on the planet? Check your local newspaper or online events guide. Coming soon; The Ultimate Events Listing for NYC

No matter where you live on this planet:

Always visit the website of entertainers or the shows they are on if you are interested in seeing them as they usually list their appearances. Or follow them on Twitter. Some soap and reality sites will also list appearances. Ticketmaster and other tickets sites will also list shows, and you can sign up for weekly emails, but these are ticketholder events. Most local newspapers have an Events section for their areas as well. Try bookstores as well for celebrity signings.

For shows and concerts try these:

Danny Aiello, Kris Jenner, Neil Patrick Harris and Gene Simmons to Appear at Bookends in NJ
