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

Small theatre so all seats are good. Shows are varied for all type of audiences. Summer musicals are excellent.

If you enjoy a night out with live entertainment this is the place to go. Every seat is great, tickets are very affordable and the talent is Incredible. I've seen shows in London, Phila & New York and this 300 seat theater is worth the price of admission. This place is a gem that includes many local restaurants to enjoy... More

Not a bad seat in the place. If you are looking for culture in Bristol, PA, come here. The Bristol Riverside Theater also supports various programs to help children and teens. What's not to like about such a great place?

It's hard to believe that this great theater sits on the same site as a notorious porn theater once did but that is where they chose to build this huge asset to the area.This theater has drawn some of the biggest names in show business to the town and as it continues to grow in reputation I'm sure that it...

This show was fantastic. I didn't want it to end. All the singers were great. Claudia and Anthony are phenomenal. If you ever have a chance to hear Claudia play the violin and Anthony sing, do it.
