Went to 3 shows. Two were fantastic. Great music and very talented actors. The third one we went to was long and boring although I'm sure others enjoyed it. This season I was able to pick the three my friend and I will be seeing. Looking forward to some great shows.

Theater is not in the best neighborhood! Great restaurant just 1 block away...on the water! King George Inn. Just be careful after dark.....Locals love the theater...outsiders are not so sure!

Last Friday night went to see The Calamari Sisters in " My Big Fat Italian Wedding" and laughed from the start to finish. It's the first time I have been to this theatre and the best description would be "small town charm". The theatre is laarge enough for a good production and small enough for all good seating. Plenty of... More

My husband and I have been subscribers at the Bristol Riverside Theatre for a number of years now and delight in the Broadway quality shows they produce in a local theater setting. Their 2014-15 season gave us: The 39 Steps (hysterically funny); Neil Simon's 1991 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Lost in Yonkers; musically-satisfying Always...Patsy Cline; vividly-scored Ragtime and, in May, a...

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
