Visited to see Flashdance, Whilst this is a review of the Theater it is worth noting the poos singing and mediocre dancing on this show. The iconic 'water' scene lasted about 15 seconds and the stage presence of the main characters and interaction was 3* at best, chemistry there was not! Now to the Theater itself. Booked tickets with Ticketmaster... More

Pretty good live theater. The acting was good the singing great. The development of the relationship between the main characters was fragmented and lacked substance.

The theater is huge. I had what I thought were good balcony seats and I felt like I was a mile away (front row on the side). The staff are not at all friendly. It feels like a business, not a theater.

We went to this theatre to see Carmen earlier this month. It was lovely experience. Most people were very well dressed and had made an effort to make it special. The entry is roomy and plenty of room for everyone milling around. We had seats upstairs and there is a good bar area which serves coffee and tea if you... More

Great theatre. Last show I saw there was David Gray. The sound was perfect, the theatre very clean and classy. A nice sized theatre. I really liked this venue! Just a shame you cannot take your beverages into the theatre but I get it...it's nice in there for a reason ;)

This is a good, comfortable venue. We found it easily and there was lots of parking in the area. The foyer is roomy even with a full house.

While visiting Vancouver last week, we noticed that Wicked was playing at the Queen Elizabeth Theater. We stopped at the Box Office and questioned the availability of reduced-price last minute tickets. Turns out that at 6:00, one can sign up for lottery tickets for that night's performance. They won't know how many tickets are available until 6:30, when they start... More

I have been to live performing art around many cities; this is the worst chair I have ever been sitting in one: Queen Elizabeth theatre. We went to WICKED BROADWAY; the show was excellent, with live orchestra and beautifully acting, we were sitting in row 6 of the Centre the theatre, after almost 2 hours it really giving me a...
