The Count Basie Center for the Arts has announced the reopening of Hackensack Meridian Health Theatre.  Joel and Maryann spoke with Adam Phillipson, President/ CEO, Count Basie Center for the Arts, about the new Pop-Up Stage –  an elevated flooring platform which will allow patrons to sit at seated, socially-distant tables and enjoy performances in the Center’s 94-year old historic venue.  The venue’s new “Pop-Up Stage” configuration extends the length of the theater stage nearly halfway across the room, providing the space necessary to seat up to 150 patrons at cabaret-style tables. Like the Basie Center’s new performance space, The Vogel, Pop-Up Stage performances will be presented with strict COVID-19 safety measures in place.
