Royal Alexandra Theatre, Toronto Reviews

  • Saw the Lorax with 3 little kids. Perfectly staged and I loved the mini acts before the show started and during intermission to keep kids entertained. Amazing seating and beautiful building. Has a beautiful charm to it found in older building that haven't been restored to be overly modern.

  • Love the charm and nostalgia of the building; a real piece of history. The stage site lines good throughout and seat comfort good. The stairs up to the upper balcony are a killer, as are the stairs down to the seats at that level.

  • Very nice historic theatre. Lobby and washrooms are fairly small and can feel crowded. Why on earth do they sell ice cream in the theatre at intermission?

  • Attended the Lorax on a cold winter afternoon. Sadly the house was late being turned over so many were jammed into the very small lobby or vestibule. Expect others outside in -15 conditions. Great old theatre space with so much history. The Royal Alexander is a treasure for Toronto Theatre patrons. Best to use TTC to access with the construction on the Gardener and new King Street traffic patterns.

  • Seats are very comfortable I felt like a king in the tall backed chair. I saw North by Northwest as part of a Mirvish subscription and the show was good in a cheesy way. I like this theatre better then the Royal Alexandria because of the additional leg room.
