“Marvelous!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Words can hardly depict the incredible establishment that is Famous People Players. Not only did they provide a delicious dinner, but an even more wonderful show put on by truly commendable individuals. The show was so fun to watch; my friends and I couldn't help singing along in the audience! Each performer is so lovely and special in his or her unique way, and when they all come together to perform, it truly is memorable. I would undoubtedly recommend Famous People Players to everyone, and I hope that I am able to return someday!

“A great evening in Toronto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We are visiting from India and so we decided to go out for a special dinner with our family. We went to this establishment and had a very delicious dinner and a fantastic dessert. But the highlight was the show! We went to see the show 'Going Bananas' and the music, choreography, and presentation was incredible. We have never seen anything like this and our daughter was amazed and really engaged.

The performers were even more amazing. They were introduced to the audience and presented their 'stories'. Heartwarming and truly moving. We headed back to the restaurant for the dessert and talked to some of the other staff and listened to some live music.

What an enjoyable and moving night. Thank you Famous People and thank you Toronto!

“Going Bananas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We attended Going Bananas on March 27, 2014. This was a really great outing for our family: grandad, granny, daughter and 4-year-old grandson, Aidan. Diane Dupuy made us very welcome and her mother, Mary Thornton, charmed the children with her magic bag of surprises. This is quite an intimate setting - not a huge theatre. I believe it holds about 180 attendees in the dining room with lots of parking close by. The show, itself, was amazing - colourful and fast moving and our daughter sung along to the snappy tunes. Our meals were delicious and cooked to perfection. The performers, who also doubled as kitchen staff, servers, greeters or cloakroom attendees, were enthusiastic and happy to be there and it showed and that was infectious. Each of us had a wonderful time and are still talking about it today. We would certainly recommend Famous People Players Theatre shows without hesitation.

“Absolutely Moving and Inspirational..A Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

I was treated by my cousin for my birthday and we were seated at Table#1 which was a lovely booth. The food was amazing and well presented not only on the plate but by willing and smiling servers who love their job. After dinner we were entertained in the theatre by the talented puppeteers who had so much spirit that came thru in their performance. I am so moved by the experience that I plan on taking a group of friends as well as encourage my group to donate funds towards this worthy organization. there is a lesson to be learnt from the team who cooked, served and performed and you have to be there to understand. Kudos Diane. See you soon Melanie N
