Visit the theatre to hear Sting and other talented actors perform in the Last Ship. The sets are stunning and the story line relevant today. The actor who played Ellie seemed a little too old for the role but her voice was stunning. The costumes...More

The best original musical I have seen in years. The story and sub plots were deep and expertly told by a very talented cast and a very interesting use of sets, lights, photos. Sting was amazing!

The show is fast paced and relays the story and impact on the workers and their personal lives with romance as a sub plot. Can’t say too much as it could be a spoiler alert. This is a must see production. We have seen the...More

Downtown
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

I did see booster seats that kids were using. They were supplied by the theatre. I don’t know how many are available and if it’s a first come first served situation .
