The thrill of searching for a murderer and solving the case lures the viewer into the plot. With detailed sets, beautifully lit stage scenes and exemplary actors each play is a masterpiece. There are no bad seats in the house and the London bar service makes intermission a delightful break between acts. You must go!

The plays are usually very good, and The Hollow is exceptionally so. We usually go to the Director's night, which is general seating. Go early to these if you want good seats together. We ended up in the back row, where the view was fine, but legroom is very tight.

Let me preface this review with a quick disclosure, we don't often go to the theatre. Both my wife and I grew up in southern Ontario and spent many afternoons in Stratford where we experienced world class productions with top notch actors so have often been left very cold at other plays. We went to this theatre with a group... More

The Vertigo Theatre mystery series has become a staple for my wife and I over the last 2 years. They have a series of 5 shows that run for several weeks each from September to May. The performances and stage are usually very atmospheric. Often they select classic stories set in the 19th or early 20th century. They may be... More

My sister and I have seen many mystery plays at Vertigo over the years. The productions are always top-notch and well worth the money. This play, the second Sherlock Holmes we've seen in recent years was one of the best-ever. It was much more funny than we expected it to be, well-written and extremely well-performed. I would very much recommend... More

My daughter and I saw a play while on vacation. Very small theatre. Very comfy as far as theatre seats go. Play was great (loved the water on stage). Bar in the lobby. Parking nearby.

My son 16yrs is studying Shakespeare at school and hates it. So we took him to see a theatre performance of Macbeth. We were totally gripped from start to finish, the cast were so believeable, very powerful performances. The fight scenes really were 'to die for'!!! Fantastic choreography and right at your feet. My son is now a Shakespeare convert... More
