Overview

The Ed Mirvish Theatre began its life in 1920 as a combination vaudeville and motion picture theatre in the Pantages theatre circuit. With its original 3373 seats, it was the largest cinema in Canada and, with its lavish interior - designed by the great theatre architect Thomas Lamb - the most elegant. David Mirvish officially renamed the iconic building The Ed Mirvish Theatre on December 6, 2011.

The theatre is beautiful. I've seen many great plays here but you really need to be careful where you sit. I saw the same play twice from different angles - both weren't the best seats in the house. If you can afford it, find a...More

I suspect the Jim Steinman, Bat Out of Hell performance has now ruined my chances of enjoying any musical I will ever see in the future.

Great stage set’s, voices and choreography. Being a Meat Loaf fan nice to a put a story to the music. Female singers quality exceeded males slightly. Theatre is worth just walking around and taking in fabulous renovations. Pre-ordering intermission drinks helps avoid lineups. Coat check...More

This musical was by far the worst production I've seen in a long time. Absolute zero logical story line, supported by a mediocre leading actor with a sub-par voice. The choreography was dreadful and the "plot" (using this term loosely) centered almost entirely on sex....More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
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
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

I think the balcony but not the first row of it as the railing might be in the sight line and that is frustrating.
