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

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.

Wonderful performance of "Pride and Prejudice". The actors are enchanting and mesmerizing. They kept our interest every moment they were on stage. The staff at BRT are friendly, helpful, and there to please the patrons. Parking is right behind the theater and easily accessible. We will definitely go back.

We have been subscribers for many years. We look forward to every season. We've seen some terrific plays, there, over the years. The sets are phenomenal. The actors are all extremely talented. It's an intimate venue. Life would be dull without the Arts. If you haven't, yet, been to the BRT, add it to your bucket list.

This is a great place to take the kids for a matinee. And a walk along the water afterwards. Small and quaint and the extra special touch from all staff members. Thumbs up!
