From New York City or North Jersey by Car

Take the New Jersey Turnpike to exit 11 to enter the Garden State Parkway.
Take the Garden State Parkway about sixty miles to exit 63, follow the off ramp to the right, you will be on Route 72 East.

Follow Route 72 East about 7.4 miles, all the way down to the causeway, it will lead you over the bridge onto Long Beach Island.
Keep going straight as far as you can go and then bear right onto Long Beach Boulevard.

Please watch your speed, our enthusiastic island police are more than happy to stop you for going over 35 mph.

Take the boulevard all the way towards the southern end of the island, about 6.2 miles. Do not be seduced by signs that say Beach Haven West, Beach Haven Gardens, North Beach Haven, or Beach Haven Terrace. This is merely a ploy designed to keep you on your toes. There is only one Beach Haven, and you are almost there. Go past the Bay Village Shops and the Ferris wheel at Fantasy Island, you will see Murphy's Marketplace on the left, make the left turn onto Engleside Avenue. The Theatre is on your left, on the corner.
(If you get to the ocean, you've gone too far!)
