Although the theatricals are truly professional and well-done, the theater itself is something special. Situated on the banks of the rushing Delaware River, the theater sits next to Bristol Lions Park and Wharf. It is also next to historic King George Inn Restaurant and Bristol's Mill Street. There is a public river overlook and gazebo just outside the door of... More

I purchased a 3 pack of tickets to see 3 different shows..One show down Driving Miss Daisy and I can't wait for my next show Jesus Christ Superstar. There is not a bad seat in the theater. So many establishments within walking distance makes it so easy to catch dinner and a show or drinks after the show. I'm considering... More

My wife & I arrived for a Saturday matinee of "Driving Miss Daisy" and we enjoyed it very much. We really like community theater and this was professionally done. We were particularly fond of Marvin Bell's, (Hoke) and Lucy Martin's, (Daisy) performances...very warmly portrayed versions of the main characters in Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer Prize-winning play. The theater has good sight... More

If you've never visited the Bristol Riverside Theatre (an Actors Equity Playhouse) for one of their live performances, do yourself a favor & check on this year's Main Stage productions. We just enjoyed a stellar performance of Driving Miss Daisy - transporting us back to the 50's & 60's as we watched Lucy Martin as Daisy, Marvin Bell as Hoke... More

This is a very professional theater set into a community background. I have seen several productions here and all of them were outstanding. One of which i remember quite well was Little Woman which was done remarkably well. You WILL be impressed.

Second show I have seen here. Good seating, friendly atmosphere and close free parking. Prices are OK for the value. Both have been good productions. Acoustics are fair but I missed a lot.👍🏻

We have seen a number of theatrical productions at the Bristol Riverside Theater. The offering has been diverse, ranging from biographies like Barrymore and Goodnight Gracie, to musicals like Pirates of Penzance and The Man of La Manca, mysteries like Deathtrap and comedies like The 39 Steps and Rumors. The quality of these shows has been consistently high. The theater... More
