We went there for the Bill Maher show, which was awesome. Parking under the building was convenient, but slow to exit, so next time, we'll grab a drink before we head out. Seats were at a funny angle, and not much leg and foot room. Both of us felt achy after the show was over. The bars had slow lines... More

Attended: March 13, 2015 My wife and I went to RTH to see Glenn Miller to celebrate our anniversary. I guess this review should be more about the theatre than the show. The staff were helpful and courteous, especially considering that so many of the audience were quite old and often physically challenged. The venue was well lit, clean and... More

We had given my inlaws a Christmas gift of tickets to see Glenn Miller Orchestra and got a pair for ourselves. I think it was a bargain for all of us. The orchestra numbered about 18 people and put out the sound of about 50! Right from the first few notes, the sound was tight and perfect. One hit after... More

Saw Beethoven symphony orchestra also other performances that were all very nice. sound is excellent in theater and nice looking venue I guess, though seating, in cheap seat of $33, personally for someone who is slim and 5"10 was beyond tight. I found myself very uncomfortable in these seats,though tried my best to overlook it and enjoy the show anyway.... More

If you are an AMX card holder use their private lounge for snacks and drinks before the show. Stunning facility. I love going to this place to watch shows. The Ritz Carlton is right across the street. Great place to catch and bite and drink before or after the show. Park underground for the best parking and prices.

As a pianist, I wanted to play Glen Gould's piano, but they don't allow that - fair enough. The building itself is beautiful, and we went to watch Handel's Messiah performed by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. A fine performance, but I've heard a lot better from symphony orchestras in the past. The ground level is lovely and relaxing, with limited... More

I went here on a Wednesday evening to see the performance "from Bach to Bluegrass" featuring the Toronto symphony orchestra and Time for 3 and I must say I really enjoyed myself. The last time I was at Roy Thomson Hall I saw a speaker so I really didn't know what it would be like seeing a musical performance. I... More

I have made sure to visit this wonderfully appealing (visually and musically) hall each and every year. Their location is very close to St.George subway station, plus there is Blue P parking at the corner of simcoe and wellington. My only disapproval is in regards to their washroom location. One must trek down a few flights of stairs in order... More

Having been to a previous Vienna-style New Year's concert in NYC a few year's ago, I looked forward to another version of the series in Toronto. It was fun, and the Hall looked sparkling--but the quality of the singing and dancing was not as good as I remembered. I saw in the program that the same basic concert was being... More
