This venue was built in 1907 with many beautiful neoclassical features. It is a storied building with a rich past. Nowadays it is a flagship theatre stage for Broadway musical hits. I just came back from " Come Far From Away". It was a humbling almost spiritual experience.
We sat on the front right box balcony with a perfect wide expanse of the audience. It's my first experience to view people's enjoyment on their faces while the cast was performing. And what a great performance from the cast of 'Come From Away'. Bravo!
Excellent theatre. Come from Away was outstanding. There is not a bad seat in the house. It is a great location in the theatre district on King Street. Lots of great accommodations and restaurants very close by.
Lots of history in this building. Very old and some spaces are pretty tight. The staff are excellent! It is a great place to watch a show and I can't wait to come back!
This theatre is in a very heavy traffic area so if driving, leave an extra half hour to get to it. The parking lot is off John Street (at King) beside the Princess of Wales Theatre. $15 evenings, less in afternoon. Apparently, Roy Thomson Hall also has underground parking. **If these are full, I have absolutely no idea where you would park**. Frankly, the GO Train or other public transit would make a lot more sense. The on-line ticket fee for two tickets was $20, not cheap but less than some venues charge. The theatre was built in 1902 and is gorgeous. It's not very big so even the back row on the main level is close enough. (My photo is from that location.) The upper level is VERY steep (see others' photos) and the seats are not as close to the stage. They sell drinks in the basement lounge; washrooms are there too. We saw "Come From Away" last night. I would rate it 7 stars out of 10. Very good but does not live up to the hype we got from friends who had already seen it.
