Ever since we launched our satellite site for all things locally cultural, Red Bank oRBit has brought you the bar-none best coverage of the Two River Theater and all who sail with it — not just the mainstage productions from the borough-based professional troupes Two River Theater Company, but the many “guest events” and interesting characters (Springsteen and BonJo; Philip Seymour Hoffman and Alec Baldwin; Robert Wagner and Kevin Smith) who’ve passed this way through town.

This weekend brings two more special guests to the 2RT stage — starting with national headliner funnyman Mike Marino, who performs on Friday in a Laugh Out Loud comedy event dedicated to the benefit of the Monmouth County nonprofit 180 – Turning Lives Around. Then on Saturday, it’s a night of spiritual songs featuring Joshua Nelson (above), the one-of-a-kind, Oprah-approved Next Big Thing who puts his own soulful gospel spin on traditional Jewish music.

We’ve got the particulars, along with some helpful reminders of what’s going up onstage on Bridge Avenue in the weeks to come, right here in Red Bank oRBit!
