Really friendly welcome and direction. Loved how intimate the theatre is and the interaction with the players. We saw Rocky Horror and the production was good and the actors were entertaining, fun and interactive. Overall, a solid experience and a great evening.

Small venue right in the middle of the Ossington strip. We saw their production of The Producers during our visit and enjoyed it very much. Actors were amazing and the sets were done surprisingly good for a such a small venue. Gender-neutral bathrooms are nice...More

The show was very good. The reason for the lower rate is the 2 "gender-neutral" washrooms in the theater (one being behind the first curtain) and none "gender-specific" ones!

Really enjoyed our night at the theatre, a very small compact theatre only seats for about 100. The production itself was fabulous, my 3 teenagers weren’t too keen on attending the show but as I’d prebooked they went and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The show itself was fantastic! It was better than some Mirvish shows I've seen. We sat in the front row, and I would definitely recommend that for small kids. The show was about 2 hours and 15 minutes, including the intermission. The gender neutral washroom...More

The theatre is a little out of the downtown. It’s a small theatre with nowhere to sit while waiting to be admitted to the theatre. The concession stand is small but serves a good variety of snacks. They are cash only though. The show was...More

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

Cabaret was about an hour and a half long. They did have one 15 miunte intermission. This show was well worth seeing!!! You'll love it. If you can get seats at a table you'll be right in the show!!

There is a bus on Ossington that goes up to Bloor Street and stops outside of Ossignton subway station. The bus stop is very close to the theatre. The bus runs pretty frequently. Just make sure everyone gets a transfer so... More
