How do you get the community together? If you’re Two River Theater, then it means throwing one memorable block party, which in this case, turned out to be an indoor party instead. The last-minute switch occurred because of the brutal heat wave that has recently hit the greater New Jersey area over the course of the last few days.
Regardless of that, Two River Theater’s 4th annual block party went off without a hitch, bringing community members far and wide together with help of delicious comfort foods and live music courtesy of The Shady Street Show Band. And speaking of food, there was plenty of variety, which were all sourced from local restaurants in the area. They include Urban Coalhouse, West Side Eatery, JBJ Soul Kitchen, Bombay River, and M&J Texas BBQ!
In addition to that, we interviewed Two River Theater’s Artistic Director, John Dias, who goes into detail about the block party’s origins and its meaning to the community. Be sure to check out our interview with him in our video above, as well as checking out all the photos from the event below!
