Good sized venue, modern with nice decor, great for pretty much any performance. (minor quibble: women's washrooms down a couple levels)

I was fortunate enough to see The Loin King here and it was fantastic. The Theatre is gorgeous that has nice lay out. The Bar is conveniently located directly in the doors, although it is a bit small it makes for an Internet setting.

I've been to Queen Elizabeth theatre for quite a few times for concerts and shows. The seats are comfortable and can easily get here (skytrain or drive).

Almost 2 hours of total fun. They use any number of different type of objects to make noise, and the effect is quite neat. I assume the performers are all dancers because of the movement they do - the whole experience was great!

When I was studying theatre (many years ago) I was lucky enough to be able to do a tour of the theatre itself and if you get an opportunity to do this go for it. Lots to see from the catwalk to the green rooms....More

Really not a bad seat in the house but depends on what type of show you are attending hoe close you want to sit.
