Broadway's Dirty Dancing

We attended an event last night at the QueenElizabeth Theatre. TIP: book an aisle seat so that you can run for the washroom during intermission. After we ran down the stairs and entered what appeared to be a "tunnel like" space, we had access to the restroom. However, after about 4 minutes, there was a HUGE lineup to use the... More

We enjoyed Dirty Dancing last night. Good theater, courteous sitters, fantasy bars. The location is close to skytrain station and bus stations so it is convenient.

Uncomfortable, small seats. Felt like they have added extra seats to make more money. Disappointed, we wouldn't go back.

This was our second time to a musical at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. It is a good theatre for touring shows. There is plenty of space to enjoy a pre-show drink or coffee.

Saw Bill Maher with his inimical performance implicating US and Canadian politics, religion, and cultural differences. There were probably 2,500 attendees who offered applause, particularly when he speared Conservative Republican politicians A great show..

This is a classic performance theatre, the seating is comfortable and with great views from all points. The acoustics can make a good singer a great singer and a great signer through the roof.

Loved the layout. Comfortable seats. Even balcony seats offer a good view of the stage. A tip: There is t much different between balcony center front seats and dress circle.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
