Entertainment magazines have a new look thanks to the innovative and interactive design of New Jersey Stage magazine. The debut issue is available online now.

BELMAR, NJ, July 24, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- It's not a website and it's not a print publication, it's a magazine that brings the best of both worlds together. New Jersey Stage is changing the way people experience local entertainment magazines with its use of audio, video, and interactive elements. The debut issue is available for free at http://www.newjerseystage.com/magazine. It has the look of a print magazine, but with enhancements that can only be found digitally.

New Jersey Stage blends features and interviews with artists from the Garden State alongside those of national artists performing in the area. The debut issue contains interviews with:

- New Jersey musician Jack Skuller who recently was awarded the Holly Prize by the Songwriters Hall of Fame
- Comedian Dom Irrera, who is performing at the Tropicana in Atlantic City
- Filmmaker Daniel Goodman, who is currently shooting the film "I'm From New Jersey"
- Playwright Robert Caisley whose latest work, "Lucky Me," is being presented at NJ Rep
- Comedian Colin Quinn who is performing at the Newton Theatre
- Music industry professional Andrew Curry, who is producing "Here Comes the Reign Again," a new compilation of classic '80s British artists covered by musicians of today

In addition, the issue contains artwork by Rob Tanico, poetry by J. Sales, reviews of the films "Boyhood" and "Grand Central," an exclusive music video by Bruce Tunkel, a music industry column by Rosemary Conte, and an original comic strip by Gene Pompilio.

"Two things make the magazine unique," explained Gary Wien, publisher of New Jersey Stage. "One is the way articles come alive with the help of audio and video clips. The other is the way the magazine can be read on any computer, tablet, or even a smart phone. In fact, the magazine is actually designed to look great for mobile users!"

Articles are not the only thing to come alive in the magazine, the advertising does as well. As to be expected, each ad links back to the advertiser's website and social media outlets, but that's only the beginning. Ads with addresses contain a pop-up map for driving directions, phone numbers can be dialed directly from the ad, and several ads utilize audio and video. The possibilities are endless in this medium. The possibilities are endless in this medium. Best of all for advertisers, lower production costs mean lower ad rates. Ads range from just $20 to $150 for a full-page ad.

"I believe digital magazines are the best way to promote arts-related events," said Wien, who previously published the popular Upstage Magazine. "Film reviews with actual movie trailers, record reviews with MP3s or music videos, and theatrical productions with scenes from rehearsals or opening night... all enhance the reader's experience."

Early readers have instantly recognized the difference between the traditional black and white entertainment newspaper and New Jersey Stage with its full-color, audio, and video. The difference is like night and day.

"I didn't know what I liked more, its modern, hip appeal or its well written content," said one reader.
