Intimate, older theatre. Helpful, courteous ushers and beverage staff. Comfy seats. The show was wonderful! Fran (Gemma Sutton) has an incredible voice, just beautiful! All the other actors played their roles perfectly!

I enjoyed Strictly Ballroom. It was light, amusing and entertaining. I enjoyed the music and dancing very much. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who asked me to critique it.

Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner
Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the
outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is
celebrated by a number of monuments and museums,
giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier
destination for modern art, people here stroll through
the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy
the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe

What is the dress code for the theatre? We are only using carry on luggage and I am wondering if I need another pair of shoes in addition to my tennis shoes?

As far as I remember, there is just popcorn, candy and icecream bars sold. We have taken in snacks because of the childrens allergies and there never has been a problem.

Parking is in City lots - best way? park at a subway station and take the subway - so much easier and stress free - 2 block walk from the St. Andrew (King St W) subway station
