The Tarragon of 2013 is continuing the venerable Annex of way of doing things... a bit different, a bit sophisticated, a bit about going for drinks after whatever the show was. I enjoyed it, and if you're reading this, you probably will too.

I have been a life long philosophy student and was disturbed at the consistent presentation of plays that were based on idealism. Plays that tried to project onto the world how idealists think the world should be. I saw one play by an empiricist who had the perception to see how the world actually is. That was Courageous by Michael... More

What a nice old, intimate theatre. Audience surrounds the stage with all seats having a great view. Comfortable seating with lots of leg room. Wonderful, off-broadway style productions. Only complaint is the air is stuffy; needs more circulation.

Small and always great plays. Easy parking on the side streets. Every year they put together a great group of performances. Comfortable seating and easy access by subway or streetcar.

We have seen performances at the Tarraon Theatre several times. Each time we walked away thrilled and amazed at the creative, thought provoking productions. This theatre is not large. The cast are skilled professionals that provide provocative and thoughtful plays.

What I saw here - THE CHARGE OF THE EXPORMIDABLE MOOSE PRESENTED BY ONE LITTLE GOAT THEATRE. What a great production! I saw this wild play while I was in Toronto at the end of May 2013. Loved the theatre, loved the seating, loved the production! So enjoyable, I can't imagine not going back to this theatre when I return... More

Having been a Tarragon subscriber almost from its inception when i lived a long way out of town, i can recommend Tarragon as a rewarding habit. Now i live much closer and still find it to be a funny mix of the brilliant and the obscure. Almost every season includes at least one sock blaster play - that is one... More

We have had a Tarragon subscription since 1997. There is at least one good play per season, but taste is individual. Some I have disliked were very well received by other patrons, and presumably vice-versa. The memorable ones were: "Little Mercy's First Murder by Morwyn Brebner", "The Clockmaker" by Stephen Massicotte, and "East of Berlin" by Hannah Moscovitch. Some plays... More
