Butz is a Maplewood local who has won Tony Awards for his work in two Broadway shows — Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Catch Me If You Can. He is currently starring in the Broadway production Big Fish. His real-life partner, Federer, not only appeared in Wicked, but also had a role in the television series, Smash. Prince, currently working on the new Broadway production of Annie, won a Tony Award for her work in Guys and Dolls. She has received Tony nominations for three other performances, as well.  Tickets for Celebrity Readings are $50 in advance and $55 at the door.  Buy tickets here: or by calling (973) 378-7620.

This is just one of many special events that make Maplewood Township a great place to live. With community centers, concerts, parks and an annual outdoor art show, Maplewood residents never run out of arts and cultural opportunities. In addition, the public schools in the Maplewood area boast small classroom sizes, high SAT scores and a rate of 91 percent of students choosing to further their education after graduation. Add to all of this a small town atmosphere with tranquil streets and an easy commute to the big cities, and you have a place you would be proud to call home.

If you’ve been dreaming of making Maplewood your home, contact me. As a resident of Maplewood and an area real estate expert, I would love to be a part of that dream.
