One of Toronto's newest theatres, this is a great place to see live theatre. Although this is a large space (2000 seats), it manages to feel quite intimate. Even the seats in the balcony have good sight lines and don't feel too distant. However, for a show like War Horse (showing Feb - Apr 2012) that features several entrances/exits through the orchestra seats, you do miss some of the action from up in the balcony.
If you're sitting in the balcony, where your "climbing shoes". You have to climb a LOT of stairs to get to the top. Then you'll need to be patient when leaving ... everyone from the seats below clog the 2 stairwells.
I find the seat backs to be rather still and slightly uncomfortable but I love the overall experience.
