Comedian and former late night talk show host Jay Leno created a lot of buzz in Englewood over the weekend. He helped usher in a new era for the Bergen Performing Arts Center and cut the ribbon for the grand reopening of the nonprofit theater that now has $10 million of renovations inside.
The restoration of the theater, built in 1926, includes massive technology upgrades and a new modern decor. At the private reception, Leno mingled with an excited New Jersey crowd, who also got to see his show Saturday night.
Also in Monday's Jersey Buzz, hear live progressive rock classics from Yes and in person with one of the founding members Jon Anderson. The singer and songwriter was part of one of the most creative and boundary-pushing bands to emerge from the progressive rock scene of the '70s and '80s. Fans can take a musical journey into the past with their favorite Yes songs when Anderson hits the stage at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark on Sunday, April 16 at 7:30 a.m.
And get ready for laughs when Emmy and Grammy-nominated comedian Margaret Cho performs at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair on Saturday, April 15. Cho has been named one of the greatest comics of all time.
