Have been to the Tarragon theatre on several occasions and always enjoy the performances. Minimalist staging, but effective. Creative. Well written and performed. Small theatre which means great seats throughout.

I've been a subscriber at Tarragon for a number of years and I think things are getting better and better. Recently 'The Summoned' and 'Mustard' were interesting and thought provoking, with a side dish of humour. Specific seats are not reserved, and people tend to line up 30 or more minutes before the shows in the main theatre. But, the... More

We saw Archambault's play You Will Remember Me last night and were blown away. The subject matter is deeply affecting, and the performances are superb. R.H. Thomson is outstanding as the aging and ailing professor, but the other four actors are also excellent. The script has been very well translated from the original French-Canadian. I cannot recommend this play too... More

As a season subscriber, I enjoy the diversity of the productions at the Tarragon theatre. Remember Me was a great play with R.H. Thomson and Nancy Palk. worth watching while at this venue.

We went to see Henrik Ibsen's "Enemy of the People" adapted by a German director. The play was transposed to the present, the issues raised being just as relevant now as they were in the late nineteenth century. Dr Stockmann's rant is a bit over the top but well delivered. All the actors are very good, and making Stockmann a... More

Saw Sextet yesterday. Nice show. 90 minutes no intermission! Fantastic delivery of dialogue. Impeccable timing. Very good acting. The theatre itself is very nice. Small,cozy,comfortable. Parking is free on the side streets. 5 $ flat rate during the w/e. Lovely seniors who act as volunteers. You are the best! Will visit again. Highly recommend visiting this theatre. A hidden gem.

Loved the performance of Sextet I attended last night. Brilliant writing, acting and design. A lovely theatre offering diversity and high standards. Warm, welcoming and comfortable. It must be supported. Turn off your screens and get there!

Just saw this play last night and it was excellent. The acting was superb and at one point they bring the lights up and allow the audience to participate in the debate. People were right into the argument and quite indignant about the actor's differing positions. Great fun and very interesting. An excellent evening out.

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

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
