Matilda is the perfect performance to introduce your youngins to real theatre. The acting was terrific with catchy tunes throughout. Loved the cast with so many talented young actors! My husband and I attended an afternoon performance, and it was filled with kids all dressed...More

Amazing! Already seen this show in New York...this is just as good! Excellent view, fantastic experience. Lovely venue. Food and drink slightly overpriced though so remember to take your own in. Unless you have got some extra money to spend!

My family night loved the acting and production guy was good but the story is absolutely dreadful. Extremely boring and hard to follow in some sections, avoid it all costs.

My wife and I were a little skeptical going in whether we would enjoy what was a "child's" musical. The story line was easily appreciated and whether or not it complied with other interpretations was irrelevant to us. The talent level of all participants was...More

Matilda is an action packed two hours! The children actors are amazing and very talented. There is a lot of changing sets, keeping things interesting

My advice to you is: 1. If you haven't already seen "Matilda," or haven't yet purchased tickets to see it, get on your computer, or phone and order yours NOW! 2. It's perfect for kids and adults of any age! 3. The music is fantastic!...More

Despite its many excellent qualities, we did not like this show. It gets 3 out of 5 because of the things that were good...some of the acting (kids, Miss Trunchbull), but something about it (storyline? anger?) did not sit well at all.

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
