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

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!!
