A Message from the Supervisor

“Welcome to Islip, the 3rd largest town in New York State, but with an endearing small town feel. We are so proud of our town…our beaches, golf courses, marinas, parks, housing opportunities for all, businesses, industrial parks, healthcare and educational institutions including our own Islip MacArthur Airport that provides many job opportunities. I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” - Angie

February 7th, 2020 Brian Stoll had an epiphany while a student at SUNY Binghamton. His college ID gave him access to discounted Broadway Theatre tickets. Since those college days, the West Islip resident has mastered how to buy a Broadway Theatre ticket for less than $50 a seat, and he wants to share his knowledge.

Stoll has seen hundreds of Broadway performances on the Great White Way, and he's taking his show on the road, lecturing at local libraries and offering money-saving tips. “My goal is to encourage Long Islanders to support the arts and see more shows. And I do that by informing them how to see shows like I have for under $50 a ticket,” said Stoll. “I love Broadway because it’s LIVE. It’s happening right now! Anything can happen and it’s only going to happen that one night. They’ll repeat the show, but it’s never going to be the same,” added.

“Nothing compares to the excitement of Broadway,” said Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “Brian’s tips make it affordable for a family or friends to enjoy the theatre,” she added.

Stoll can be booked for a lecture through his Facebook Page, Stoll the Show.

“I feel like I’m a theatre-addict. This is my support group. So when I give a talk at a library, it’s theatreholics anonymous,” Stoll chuckled.
