[R] Trouble plotting interaction with brkdn.plot from plotrix package

I'm exploring different ways to plot interactions for mixed-design ANOVA and am having difficulty getting the brkdn.plot() function in the R plotrix package to work.

The interaction.plot() is working fine, but I'd really like to be able to customize the plot more as the brkdn.plot() function seems to be able to do.

Any help pointing out my error(s) would be much appreciated.

Here is an example of my code:

Y = rnorm(1600, 5, 2)
A = c(rep(1, 200), rep(2, 200), rep(1, 200), rep(2, 200), rep(1, 200), rep(2, 200), rep(1, 200), rep(2, 200))
B = c(rep(1, 400), rep(2, 400), rep(3, 400), rep(4, 400))
A = factor(A, levels = c(1, 2), labels = c("Treat", "Control"))
B = factor(B, levels = c(1, 2, 3, 4), labels = c("One", "Two", "Three", "Four"))
dat = data.frame(Y, A, B)

# I can't figure out why this doesn't work
brkdn.plot("dat$Y", "dat$B", "dat$A", data = dat)

# this works
interaction.plot(dat$B, dat$A, dat$Y, fun = mean)
