Located 90 minutes from New York City, the Bucks County Playhouse opened in 1939 on the site of a gristmill dating from the late eighteenth century. Ironically, the structure was at that time in danger of demolition; however playwright Moss Hart and the local community rallied to save the building and re-opened it as a theatrical venue, which quickly became one of the country’s most famous regional theaters, with a veritable who’s who of American theatrical royalty including Kim Hunter, Helen Hayes, Kitty Carlisle, Colleen Dewhurst, Shirley Booth, Lillian Gish, June Lockhart, Grace Kelly, Robert Redford, Bert Lahr, Leslie Nielsen and Walter Matthau and remained in continuous operation until December 2010. Thanks to the Bridge Street Foundation, the non-profit family foundation of Kevin and Sherri Daugherty, this beloved theatrical landmark was re-opened and celebrated on July 2, 2012, exactly 73 years and day from when it originally opened in 1939. The Bucks County Playhouse is located at 70 South Main Street in New Hope, PA.
The Skivvies are Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley, award-winning NYC singer/actor/musicians doing stripped down versions of eclectic covers and eccentric originals. Not only are the arrangements stripped down - cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica - but the Skivvies literally strip down to their underwear to perform. Molina and Cearley are YouTube sensations with their Skivvies covers of artists like Robyn, Lana Del Rey, Carole King and Rihanna. They have been making quirky pop music together and playing across the country since 2004, with a live show that’s fast and funny and packed with big voices, crazy harmonies and fun arrangements.
