It covered the arts and music of the Central region of New Jersey, with a monthly circulation of 25,000 copies, and state-wide distribution. It received the Asbury Park Music Award for Top Music Publication in 2007, the only it is the only publication to beat The Aquarian Weekly in that category. Shortly afterwards, Upstage Magazine ceased publication.

With arts and music groups continuing to submit press releases and materials to Wien, he registered newjerseystage.com in 2008, as an online news resource for New Jersey media. By 2014, Wien redesigned the website into a digital version of Upstage Magazine, with the first issue of the digital magazine, New Jersey Stage, being published on 15 July of that year. Designed for the internet medium, the magazine contains interactivity, with audio, video, and social media. Contributors include Danny Coleman, Bob Makin, Eric Hillis, Rosemary Conte, and Spotlight Central. The website NewJerseyStage.com is updated daily.
In 2015, New Jersey Stage hosted the concert, BackStage Pass, at the historic vaudeville theater The Stand, in Lakewood Township, New Jersey, with singer/songwriter Matt Keating, Arlan Feiles, and singer/songwriter George Wirth.
