Very conveniently located in Toronto downtown. You can see the most popular stage shows. The building has a very artistic spirit and is really worth seeing.

A musical not to be missed! Gave us a better perspective of how 9/11’s tragedy effected so many people in so many different ways.

I am aNewfoundlander and was proud throughout the performance that our province got showcased the way we really are. Also although it was focused on Gander the show was also indirectly a great remembrance of that awful day on 9/11.
