Royal Alexandra Theatre - Review
Completed in 1907, the Royal Alexandra theatre has often been regarded as a masterpiece of Beaux-art architecture and some have called it an Edwardian jewel-box. That is certainly the prettiest Theatre in Toronto, And it has maintained the 19th century look both inside and outside. There are three levels including the orchestra, balcony and gallery. There are four concession areas, one for each level of the theater and one for the Simpsons Lobby.

Royal Alexandra Theatre, Toronto Reviews
Great experience here! beautiful, historic and well kept theatre great service. Definitely will return! Keep in mind though those with disability or who can't do stairs, this facility has no elevator and narrow entrance ways.. if you cant do stairs I'd avoid quite a few areas of seating, check the website as they have pretty good descriptions of seating chart.
We saw the show Come From Away ! My first experience at this theatre. What a gorgeous place with incredible decor. Love the old details of the theatre. The show was incredible and I would love to see it again. The only thing I would say the balcony is quite steep and the main stairs don't have anything proper to hold on to. I suppose it is to keep the theatre preserved. Besides that a gorgeous venue and an incredible play. Well done !
This is a beautiful theater. We saw Come From Away. This is the most important musical of our modern era and one of the finest shows I have ever seen. In these times of such unprecedented division among races and cultures, this musical really hits the nail on the head about people coming together and just being good to each other in a time of crisis. Every single performer in the show is too notch. The play is highly moving. You must see this show!
Very nice theatre in a handy location! Here's a tip. If you have to sit near the back (for price or because there aren't many seats left) sit on the orchestra level at the very back. The seats are given an extra boost up and have footrests so you can see really well. Good design.
What a great old theatre. We sat on the balcony and had no trouble seeing the entire show. The seating on the balcony was so steeply sloped, that no one’s heads were in the way. My wife is short and was super happy that her view was un-obstructed. Of course the theatre has a ton of character because of its age. Great spot.
