Historic Madison


Historic Madison: The Rose City, Est. 1710:

The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is located in the charming town of Madison. Once the hub of America's rose-growing industry, Madison earned the nickname "The Rose City" in the
mid-19th century. During the summer months, glorious rose bushes still bloom throughout the town.

Only 30 miles outside of midtown Manhattan, Madison offers all the sophistication of a New York suburb combined with the home-spun comfort of Main Street USA. The vibrant downtown is comprised of unique shops, tree-lined streets, art galleries and more than 40 restaurants and eateries-all within a ten-minute walk from the Theatre's Main Stage. On-street and municipal parking downtown is free.

The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is a proud member of the Madison Arts and Culture Alliance as well as the Madison and Morris County Chambers of Commerce. For a town of 16,000, Madison is teeming with arts and culture.
