RED BANK, N.J. (AP) - Comedian and former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart has surprised construction workers at a New Jersey performing arts theater with a free lunch.
The theater is in the midst of a $26 million expansion project. The project includes adding an arts and education building, a second performance space and updated heating systems.
Stewart performed at the theater in June and helped raise $50,000. He says schools are having a hard time exposing kids to the arts, so having the expanded center available locally is “really important.”
Construction on the project is expected to be completed by 2019.
