Bucks County Playhouse for a matinée performance
The New World
9:15 AM – 6:00 PM
There goes the neighborhood! It’s 1620 and, much to the Wampanoag Indians’ chagrin, the Pilgrims are moving in – ready to rock the “new” world. From the creators of “Altar Boyz,” this outrageously funny big new musical is everything you never learned in history class! Before the show we will dine in historic elegance at the Lambertville Station Restaurant a restored 19th century train station. Every dish features locally-grown and sourced ingredients. It has charming town views and the Deleware River in its backyard. Then off to Bucks County Playhouse, a converted 1790 gristmill, located in the heart of beautiful, historic, New Hope PA where we will see the matinee performance of The New World based on the book by Regina DeCicco and L.F. Turner.

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564), a towering genius in the history of Western art, will be the subject of this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. During his long life, Michelangelo was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. For his mastery of drawing, design, sculpture, painting, and architecture, he was called Il Divino (“the divine one”) by his contemporaries. His powerful imagery and dazzling technical virtuosity transported viewers and imbued all of his works with a staggering force that continues to enthrall us today.
This exhibition will present a stunning range and number of works by the artist: approximately 150 of his drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, as well as a substantial body of complementary works by other artists for comparison and context. Among the extraordinary international loans are the complete series of masterpiece drawings he created for his friend Tommaso de’ Cavalieri and a monumental cartoon for his last fresco in the Vatican Palace. Selected from 54 public and private collections in the United States and Europe, the exhibition will examine Michelangelo’s rich legacy as a supreme draftsman and designer.
