Saw Dear Even Hansen. Amazing performance. The theater itself was very nice. Sat in the mid section main floor had a great view. Enough leg room. Could use maybe a few more inches wide seating for added comfort. Prices for souvenirs was a bit pricy....More

After seeing it on Broadway last year we couldn't wait to see it again in Toronto. The cast and production compared really well to the Broadway show.. Ok, the stairs to the balcony are a little tough, however it's a wonderful theater and perfect size...More

For musical theatre fans, I heartily recommend Dear Evan Hansen. Saw it last night with my teen-aged daughter. The songs were beautiful and there was some amazingly innovative staging. I thought the depiction of social media response to suicide and related events was insightful, as...More

Just saw Dear Evan Hansen, first time at this theater. It was fantastic. Very intimate- not a bad seat in the house

Gorgeous old Theatre. Saw Come From Away Musical and thought everything was superb. Seats were comfortable. It is rather small compared to some theatre's which gave it more intimate feel. Acoustics were great and looks like the view from all seats would be excellent.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
