This is at least my third visit to the Bristol Riverside Theater and haven't been disappointed yet. I've seen a serious play and comedy and a musical and they've all been enjoyable! You can see from any seat in the house and there is a parking lot. We would check return again!

We've been season ticket-holders since 1986. Wonderful local theater, Broadway shows on the small stage. Keith Baker and Susan Atkinson provide top-notch shows and the BRT is an asset to our community!

Located in the heart of Bristol Borough's shopping, dining, arts and entertainment district sits this gem of a theater. Professionally run by dedicated managers. Excellent shows, great actors. Come to the Borough shop, eat and enjoy yourself.

Fun place with good acoustics. Located in charming Bristol right next to the Delaware River. You can easily see the shore lines of Burlington, NJ

If you've never been to the BRT you will be pleasantly surprised. It is just small enough so that every seat in the theater has a great view . Speaking of views it is located on the beautiful Delaware river. I am a season ticket holder to a theater down town but nothing beats the quaintness and convenience of the... More

What a lovely theater, old but charming, saw a one man comedy show last week and enjoyed. There is no seat that is Not a good seat. We have even subscribed for a three night musical in June July and Aug. I will say that I didn't like the manners of the person who sold me the ticket by phone,... More

Had the pleasure of seeing my daughter perform in the BRT production of Ragtime. This was our first visit to this venue, and I could not have been more pleased. The seating was great, good views from all angles. The acoustics supplemented both the vocal and musical arrangements. The cast was phenomenal, not that I was a little bias since... More

The theatre is really nice and pricing very reasonable. When you compare the quality of the entertainment with the price, it is really difficult to go to Philly or NYC. OK you will not see Lion King or 1st run Broadway shows but for what is presented and actors are great for a good price.

We don't come here often since we live a distance away, but when we do we are well-pleased. This was The Little Shop of Horrors and they did it well, with some very nice touches. It is a small theater so all of the seats are good. And, it's on the river with nich benches for water and people-watching prior... More
