Bristol Riverside Theatre's "The Producers" is offering theater-goers another stellar, Broadway-quality production. Under the consistently fine direction of Keith Baker, this comedic musical kept us "Prisoner's of Love" last evening, captivated by the fabulous acting, singing & dancing.

Third time here. Every seat is satisfactory. Theater is small and cozy, acoustics were good both prior visits. Not hard to get tickets a few weeks in advance. Price is fair and inexpensive compared to NYC.
