Niagara Falls Grand Helicopter Adventure

334 reviews
First-time visitors to Canada likely have Niagara Falls at the top of their to-do list and the most incredible views of the falls are from above. This helicopter tour offers almost double the time in the air to other tours, so you can enjoy views of not only the American, Bridal Veil, and Canadian Horseshoe Falls, but Niagara-on-the-Lake, Niagara wine country, and along the Niagara River.

Oh What a Lovely War! We saw this in preview two weeks ago, and are still reflecting on the tremendous ensemble performance presented by a fine and energetic cast. A complex effort was made to tie the First World War experience of Canadian citizens of many heritages with the audience of today: one character even addresses the audience, asking us to think of the young people of the town who in 1914 sat in the same seats, innocently anticipating a short and successful overseas posting. The opening scene features a Pierrot marionette, a reference to the original version of the show based on a seaside pier in England with its troupe of Pierrot clowns. It is lifted and activated in a superbly controlled dance sequence by James Daly, who throughout demonstrates great sensitivity and physical skill. Physicality in acting is a powerful component of this production, with songs, dance, gymnastics and scene changes following in bewildering succession, backed visually by photos and old movie clips from the early twentieth century. At times this was overpowering and troubling. But then so is war. The cast works extraordinarily hard, and clearly gives every ounce of energy to this production. It is not your usual musical, and demands from its audience a certain understanding of history and society, of the cruelty and kindness of humanity, of failure and success, and a willingness to be carried away on a tide of powerful sensory stimuli.

Didn't know the background story on this production of Shaw's play until reading the program. It was the most interactive play with the audience that I have attended over many years of going to the Shaw Festival. The interaction and involvement with the audience throughout the show, made it different and yet very special. I won't give away any more than that except to say it is primarily a comedy and it fulfilled that objective in spades! The acting was well scored and well done. Would recommend to anyone to catch it before it closes this month.

Earlier this season we saw Androcles and the Lion in the Courthouse Theatre, and while the play was enjoyable we did not care much for the venue. The Festival got started here in 1962, and I remember seeing my first festival performance here four years later. I was not impressed with the space then, and I wasn't today when we attended a performance of 1837: The Farmers' Revolt. The seats are uncomfortable, and it did not help that both of us thought the production was boring, and we left at the intermission. Time for the Shaw to retire the Courthouse?

Quite different than we were expecting, so much audience interaction and impromptu by the cast. The stage area is recessed with elevated seats on three sides, lots of stairs even after you get the elevator to the entry level. Good Show, we had a great time.
