The Off-Broadstreet Theatre in Hopewell is truly one of a kind. With the "original and best New Jersey Dessert Theatre", producers and director Bob and Julie Thick have staged more than 225 shows over the past 29 years. Four delicious dessert offerings, along with fresh fruit, coffee and tea await theatre goers who will thoroughly enjoy the current production, Violet Sharp.  Based on the true story of the 1932 Lindbergh Kidnapping Case, the show focuses on "the young British domestic who lived at the Morrow house in North Jersey and initially lies to the police as to her whereabouts on that fateful night."   The playwright, William Cameron, was awarded the Julie Harris Playwriting Award in 2007 in Beverly Hills for this drama, and in 2009 the official world premiere of Violet Sharp opened at Theatre 40 in Los Angeles.  It is fitting that the show's New Jersey premiere be at none other than Hopewell's Off-Broadstreet, as it is walking distance to local landmarks in the crime and trial such as the Hopewell Pharmacy, The Hopewell Inn, and the Lindbergh estate itself is minutes away.  The tremendous cast, local lore, and Lindbergh history make this a must see.  Only two shows left! This Friday and Saturday, 6/21and 6/22. Doors open at 7pm for dessert and show starts at 8pm.  For reservations call 609.466.2766 or visit
