THEATER J'S NEWEST PROGRAM:
Are you in your 20s - 40s?
Would you call yourself a theater lover?
Do you like to eat, drink and dish on shows?
If you answered YES to the questions above, then The Exchange is for you!
The Exchange, at its core, works
a little like a book club – in two parts.
Part 1: Before we open a show (or very early in the run) we'll host a 'script' club night at the theater where we'll meet over snacks and drinks to talk about the script and the questions, curiosities and insights it brought up for us.
Part 2: In the middle of the run we'll designate one evening as an Exchange Performance! This night includes a pre-show Happy Hour and a post-show talk back with the cast.
And all this for the low low price of just $20!
(Includes ticket to the performance, all food and drink and a discount code to share with your friends!)
The Exchange is
designed to be a low stress and fun way of connecting and engaging more with
theater and others who have similar interests and we hope you can join us!

A literate, suspenseful retelling of the story of the 1656 interrogation of philosopher Baruch De Spinoza, New Jerusalem examines the clash between religion and modernity, faith and
philosophy—questions that human beings continue to grapple with. The
Washington Post raved, “A gallery of intriguing characters, nonstop enlightened argument and even—hold the phone—a socko finish.”
