Love, laughs, and drama at the HACPAC

Sure, you can deal with the traffic, pay the tolls to cross the bridge, or take the tunnel. Pay for garage space since there’s no chance you’ll get a space during showtimes. Never mind about finding a place to eat off Times Square. Of course, you can skip the Broadway scene altogether and head to the HACPAC right down the street.

Opened on November 11, 1926, as the Count Basie Theatre, this historic stage has been at the forefront of drama, music, dance, and an array of avant-garde artistry. While the name has changed to the Hackensack Meridian Health Theater (aka: the HACPAC) the core values still remain the same when it comes to showcasing the best talent on stage. Broadway and Hollywood stars. Grammy-winning artists. HACPAC delivers top-quality entertainment for SACK residents and beyond. 2022 is no different with this lineup of must-see events.
