We just saw Mary Poppins at the Lower Ossington. The cast and singing were fabulous and I enjoyed the performance. Be aware this is NOT a typical Toronto Broadway experience. The Lower Ossington is a very small theater with no stage. You will be sitting on folding chairs and the actors will be VERY close in you are in the... More

We went on a Sunday afternoon and saw the Mary Poppins production. Very well done and amazing small intimate theatre. The kids 10,13 and 15 all enjoyed it as well. The cast was stellar and their voices were amazing.

"Mary Poppins" did not dissapoint ! Great performances via the entire cast. This production really captures the essence of "Mary Poppins". My 10 year old loved it. Yes, we were apprehensive at first of the LOT (first timers) but the closeness of our seats made it even more special for us. Yes the chairs are a bit uncomformcirtable but we... More

I have been there many times. The latest time to see "Little Shop of Horrors". The rooms hold about 100 people. Very intimate. Look for deals on Groupon and elsewhere

Went with my sister to see Mary Poppins, nice small theatre, seats a few hundred so nice and close to the stage. Quick stage set changes great songs and good performances by all. Very friendly staff. Unfortunately the seats were fold up chairs that were pretty hard, after an hour and a half I was getting numb so didn't return... More

I took my 7 year old daughter to see Mary Poppins here last night and it was wonderful! We were delighted to be seated right in the front row and it was a great experience. If you are a bit shy (or very tall), you may find being right in the front row a bit close, as you are essentially... More

What a pleasant surprise this performance was for us. We took our 87 year old mother as a gift and were thrilled with the singing, dancing and professional calibre quality of entire show. The tiny stage is completely transformed from rooftops to house parlours and adds to the show’s enjoyment to see the cast working so smoothly together. Costumes are... More

Went to see their amazing production of Mary Poppins. I didn't realize how small the theatre was and our seats were front row, and the stage is on the floor. Which means that my (and my friend's) long legs were in the actors way as they rushed about the stage at times. I kept having to suddenly move as to... More

Had read the reviews for this show and they were not wrong. Fantastic performance by all actors/actresses in this entertaining and delightful show. Would definately recommend to both young and old. The only con to this enjoyable evening were the uncomfortable chairs.(bring a cushion).

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
