LUNER LOWDOWN: BRT is doing a great service in bringing Brooklyn DooWop Explosion to the stage. With a great understanding of their patrons, I would recommend this performance to those from and not from Bucks County that are looking for a hint of nostalgia from what is well known as “The Glory Days.”

In addition to its mainstage productions, the theatre serves as a cultural hub for the community, with such programs as children’s theatre, community concerts and exhibitions of local visual arts. Currently under the direction of Artistic Director Keith Baker, Founding Director Susan D. Atkinson, and Managing Director Anne Kohn, BRT continues its 30th anniversary season.
