We are dedicated Theatre Calgary subscription holders, but decided to give the Vertigo Mystery Theatre a go with “The Hound of the Baskervilles”, and we were very impressed. I like the classics, and with the great seats we had, (I don’t think there are any bad seats here) the show really came to life. We will be going back.

I am a season ticket subscriber and they are a great source of entertainment if you enjoy a good mystery. Situated in the heart of downtown Calgary, they are easy to get to and a true treasure in the performing arts community in Calgary.

It is a very small theatre and you are able to be very close to the actors and it really doesn't matter where you sit. You are able to see everything. There are no assigned seating.

I have been a season ticket holder for 4 years now, taking in all 5 plays every year. There has been a good variety , from classical to modern, even some musicals ( not my cup of tea) Seems like every year there was duds, and typically end with a good one as the last play. Stage is intimate with... More

I have seen many plays and an operatical musical, which would rival anything on Broadway or London. If you like live mystery theatre, this is world class

It wasn't what I had been expecting. I guess I shouldn't have such high expectations going in. I've been to the theatre in Vancouver, Toronto, London, Paris, Prague, and Berlin, so I have troubles not comparing.

The theatre itself was very nice and there were a few good actors. I think the storyline was a good idea but I don't think it executed well. I think I'm going to stick with Theatre Calgary and the Pumphouse Theatre.

We went to Land of the Dead when it first opened. The theatre is set up so that no matter where you are sitting, you have a great view (we were in the Studio). The show was really good, and we'll definitely get tickets to more in the future.
