“As we prepare to present theater once again, what better way than to celebrate our reopening with theater music. And these artists top the list of great musical theater performers,” said Alexander Fraser, producing director at the Playhouse. “Special thanks to showman Jim Caruso for curating the Broadway Spotlight Concert Series. What better way to celebrate our return.”

“I was over the moon when the kind and talented people at Bucks County Playhouse asked me to help curate a concert series,” said Caruso. “To invite some of my favorite performers to cavort on one of the most historic stages in the country was a dream come true. Culture brings people together, and if this isn’t a time for some good-spirited, socially-distanced togetherness, I don’t know what is. May the extraordinary music, energy and joy help invigorate the Playhouse community as we all look forward to ‘opening up’ again.”
