What are our patrons saying about live theatre at The Bradley Playhouse?


I went to yesterday's performance of "The Little Mermaid" and it was absolutely incredible! All of the hard work, dedication, love, and passion really shines through in every show at the Bradley! I would absolutely recommend to everyone. - Christina S.


I have seen several shows at the Bradley and I am always in awe at the incredible local talent that we have! I recently saw "The Buddy Holly Story" and was totally BLOWN AWAY by how amazing it was! The lead character even looked exactly like Buddy Holly! Great job on a fantastic show looking forward to the next one! - Patty C.


The "Buddy Holly" production brought the theater to its feet. It was absolutely amazing and outstanding. The songs, the styles, and the scenery transported us back to the 1950's. We felt the beat and relived the memories of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the Big Bopper. Their legacy lives on. - Jane E.


By far my most favorite production at Bradley was yesterday's show of the "Little Mermaid"! Superb acting, phenomenal singing, beautiful colorful costumes, amazing backdrops, literally everything about it was terrific! Fun and entertaining for all ages! I hope it is done again!! - Christina O.


The "Pirates of Penzance" was amazing! One of the best shows yet! The talent on stage was spectacular. I had goose bumps and at one moment, tears. Thank you for such an amazing experience. - Crystal W.


We saw "Brighton Beach Memoirs" yesterday - excellent!! The acting was great! We live in RI go to Trinity, PPAC, Theater by the Sea quite often. This was our first time at the Bradley and we loved it. Will totally come back!! - Diane H.

Have had Season Tickets for about 15 years and have yet to be disappointed! Went to see "Souvenir" this afternoon and loved it. Diane Pollard was wonderful. Especially her Ave Maria!!!!! – Cindy O.

Saw a beautifully done piece of Gillette Castle and Holmes ["Postmortem"]. Beautiful! Quaint little playhouse that has stood the test of time and will continue to do so. Friendly staff, clean atmosphere and quietly sophisticated. - Chantelle Q.
