Robert Rechnitz Tribute Memorial

Robert Rechnitz, Two River Theater’s Founder

Two River Theater mourns the loss of our beloved Founder, Robert Rechnitz. Bob was one of New Jersey’s most respected civic leaders—a visionary quester who believed in the power of art to nourish what is best in us, as humans individually and collectively. “Like a town hall, a church, a sports arena,” Bob said, “theater is a gathering place. Theater instructs, it challenges, it entertains, and it inspires us with intimations and affirmations of life we never knew were hidden in us.” He was loved, and he will be missed.

A public tribute memorial will be held at Two River Theater on Sunday, November 17 at noon. To RSVP, email or call Katie Benson at or 732.345.1400 ex 1817 with your reservation details.
