This is a review of one performance: The Overcoat. Having recently read The Overcoat by Russian writer Gogol, I was excited to see how the short story translated into opera. I've seen many operas and musicals in Toronto and elsewhere and this was bar none...More

The Hannaford Street Silver Band calls this home and even has its name on the building. This is a well-deserved honor, as this British-style brass band (no French horns, of course!) plays some of the most interesting and challenging music written for this up-an-coming genre....More

This play is a "must see". The script is terrific, the acting strong and moving,and the staging enhanced but did not take over the drama. The play was pretty much sold out with a high school group there, which meant for a noise-y and crowded...More

We were in the Bluma Appel Theatre for a performance of Julie, an opera by Philippe Boesmans. The work itself was generally interesting and attractive, although it had some limitations. The theatre is first-rate. The seats are comfortable, the sightlines good, and as a whole...More

We were in the Jane Mallett Theatre for an Opera in Concert performance. It was okay, though a fully staged production would have been better. There's no way a piano can replace an orchestra. The space itself is nice, however, even though our seats felt...More

Saw Bill Frisell here and totally loved the venue. Smaller hall, very comfortable seats, staff were so friendly and helpful, not a bad seat in the place. You can enjoy a class of wine, sit back and listen to the music. For serious music lovers...More

Nice theatre but beware of two things - the heat is too high and more importantly the second floor has no elevator - quite a deterrent in this day and age when things should be accessible to those with mobility issues.

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
