“no excuse for anyone NOT to see live theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

This is a brand new theater located in Cambridge, there is not a bad seat in the house, all seats are $40.00 per person, free parking, I have seen many, many shows there already and will be a regular patron, they have put on some amazing shows, with amazing talent, I have convinced many of my friends to try live theater for the first time and every single one of them has absolutely loved it. I usually sit front row balcony, amazing seats, can see so much more from up top, however after recently watching Les Miserables from up there I immediately went home and booked to see their final performance...it was that good!!!....and scored front row center tickets....so i called up my friends and family and booked almost the whole front row, we all enjoyed it thoroughly, wish it was still playing.
there could be more disabled parking - that's the only negative.

“For spending so much money, this is a blasé place, at best”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

We saw Les Mis here and I was so disappointed! The structure is cold and the theatre is typical. There are so many better theatre designs out there! I wonder about the acoustics as well, as it is a small theatre, yet all the actors used microphones. Also, there were many people on the patio at intermission, yet no garbages and no place for cigarette butts.

“Great theatre for Cambridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

Easy parking and comfortable seats. Prices were modest compared to Toronto but don't expect the same calibre of acting, set designs or special effects.
Nonetheless a great place for family theatre.

We love going to this theatre. There is not a bad seat in the house. It is a new building so the layout is perfect.

“very professional local theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

Each time I have visited I have been most impressed with the high standard of professionalism of the cast and crew. The high standard of entertainment represents a much larger city.
