4th Wall Theatre is the theatre in residence at the Westminster Arts Center on the campus of Bloomfield College, in Bloomfield, NJ. 4th Wall’s roots are here in Essex County. It was started by eight friends, who all worked as performers or artistic staff members at the Montclair Operetta Club in Montclair, NJ. 4th Wall’s mission has focuses on presenting diverse, seldom-performed, lesser known, or original works, which celebrate a wide spectrum of visions and voices in theatre. Proud of its commitment to cutting-edge theatre, the group has presented such works as "A New Brain", "Violet", "Assassins", "Nine", and "A Man of No Importance", to name just a few. 4th Wall just closed its 15th anniversary season with Jason Robert Brown’s "Parade". The group moves into their 16th season still looking to provide a positive theatre experience for its audience and performers. In October, "Next to Normal" will open the season.
