A great venue without the challenges of going downtown and with a good range of Acts suited to one of three auditoriums. What's playing can be hit or miss. Best to go with known artists and plays.

We saw, "I Love you,Your Perfect, Now Change" at The Toronto Centre for the Arts. Very good play!! Well worth your time. The cast is talented and entertaining. Catch it before it is over on June 6th, 2013. Intimate venue, all good seats.

Went to Legends of China show on Feb 9, 2013. An amazing show of traditional Chinese instruments apart from the cellos, arranged with both western and Chinese orchestration. The facility is excellent, great acoustics and views were excellent with easy access in and out of the theatre, Underground parking is available at reasonable rates $6 compared to downtown Toronto which...

The accoustics of the small concert hall would make even me sound like a professional pianist. And any seat is a good seat for sight & sound. The Main Theatre stages large production shows. The seating is pretty good. However, there are some seats on the side aisles where the stage is half-blocked by someone in the row in front... More

Toronto Centre of Arts is for the Artist in you and others. Beautiful place to visit and see all about the history of arts. I enjoyed my visit there with my friends. Lots to see and do. You need at least 2 hours there to appreciate everything.

We are so sorry that Dancap will no longer be producing live theatre. We have enjoyed most shows that we have seen including Million Dollar Quartet. Dancap's customer service is so superior to Mirvish. We loved the music in this show. We had actually visited Sun Records last year and saw the photo that memorializes this gathering. The story line... More

We went to see West Side Story, and had a great time. I dare say that at least in the orchestra section there is not a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are great, and the view seems good from any seat.

I saw American Idiot and West Side Story at this theatre and it is a gem. It is fairly easy to get to, but I was on a bis trip both times, so I cannot comment on parking. There is plenty around the theatre to get a quick bite to eat or simply just a coffee. The theatre itself has... More

I love coming to this theater. They play a wide variety of plays and concerts. There are plenty of restaurants in the area for pre or post play. There is plenty of parking in the area, or take the subway!
