Attended the first show and laughed all evening. The venue is very nice but the access to the washrooms needs to be reworked. The backup to the mens wsshroom lines the stairs, making it a hazard for the ladies trying to get in line for the womens washroom and folks trying to climb the stairs after leaving both wasrooms.

Hello! My name is Queen E theatre! I am the place you have to go to see The Book of Mormon in Vancouver. Hello! I am your Queen E seat! I am narrow, have no leg room, and a spring to poke your bum. Hello! I am the Queen E acoustics! You can try to hear the lyrics but you... More

This is a very nice venue only a few blocks from the Skytrain, situated downtown Vancouver. Parking can be at a premium here if you drive - I wouldn't. Typical high-priced drinks, in the seven dollar range. For a concert it's very good, sight lines are great and it's not too large either. We actually went to the symphony and... More

The acoustics for The Book of Mormon were horrific. We completely missed out on at least half of the dialogue particularly when the company was singing. We thought we were the only ones but everyone around us was saying the same thing. We were sitting high up in the balcony but could hear plainly when the actors were talking most... More

Attended The Book of Mormon production September 2, 2016 and despite being in row 29 centre lower orchestra we could not make out the majority of the words being sang or spoken so the musical was a total waste of time and money. They should have had a TV monitor with the words in subtitles - as it was, it... More

Let me be up front about this review. It is not about "The Book of Mormon," and although it was a fantastic musical, this is a review of the location/venue. The Queen Elizabeth Theatre is a lovely venue to watch a musical, play, or concert. Each time I go I am always happily surprised by the short wait lines to... More

We went to see The Book of Mormon. A brilliant musical with rave reviews. We paid a lot for the tickets & really looking forward to a memorable evening. We sat in the centre mezzanine. The volume was good but we could not understand most of the words. The sound was "muffled". We checked with people around us & they... More

We love musicals, and always try to catch one if we could. It just happened that a Disney broadway musical was visiting Vancouver the very same days were there. Newsies! So we went. The seating was great, with amazing views of the stage. The acoustics were fantastic, and of course, the amenities were easily accessible. Fantastic place!

Saw Brit Floyd which is the "cover band" for Pink Floyd. As we know Pink Floyd is not around so BF did an superlative concert at QE of all the classics. The QE is a great venue for music since acoustically it is great and perfect venue holding about an estimated 1500. Every seat is a good seat and operatic... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
