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.👍🏻

AttendecSaturday night for a 70's musical review, "Love Will Keep Us Together." I think I sang along to every song. There is not a bad seat in the house and they also offer... More

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

We have seen Man of LaMancha many times; this performance ranked among the best. Indeed, that's true for most theatrical endeavors at this intimate theatre on the Delaware River where it has operated successfully for more than three decades. As in the past, they did magic with small stage and found actors who measured up to the challenge. Perhaps this... More

We've been Season members of BRT for two years. Nice theatre with a great terrace in back that is wonderful for river watching before the show. Nice bathrooms, sitting area, and they sell Gelato, Sorbet, wine, candy and other snacks. The shows range from good to excellent. The sets and costumes are built beautifully. Seats are great with enough room... More

This is a great little theater. The production was just wonderful. Robert Newman was just an amazing Don Quixote. I ran into a friend who has season tickets. She recommended getting season tickets. My husband and I are looking forward to seeing future productions. I hear that the Christmas show is fantastic. Future productions look to be amazing.
