“New artistic director needed.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

The Board of the Grand Theatre and its artistic director fail to take any chances to provide the city with something challenging. The best productions are at the Palace theatre while the professional theatre lags behind. We usually find one or two things to enjoy at the Grand; this year, none. Have not been back since last May.

“2012/13 season!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

My friend and I have now seen two events of this season and are delighted with the program. Opening with Calendar Girls was brilliant move. A lively bright performance set the scene for the coming performances. Costumes and stage settings are very well done and always amaze me. Well done Grand!

“Wonderful Theatre - wonderful experiences”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

This really is a Grand old theatre. I love the old fashioned balconies, the set decoration, the costuming; I have been to lots of productions both in the main theatre and in the smaller McManus theatre downstairs and it is magical every time. The seats are very comfortable as well and the sight lines are good.

“Viva the Grand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

The Grand Theatre is a gem in London Ontario. My Mom and I are season ticket holders and never miss a show. The theatre is beautiful inside with recently rennovated seating. They offer a wide variety of programming including the one of a kind High School Project - which is a full fledged Theatre production using all local highschool students as actors, Costume, set, props and production staff. It is wonderful for these kids and the community!

“The Grand Theatre is a Must-See!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

The Grand Theatre is a favourite of mine and my husband's. Aesthetically the Grand is absolutely gorgeous. The theatre is historical and is a real treat to see! The staff are always courteous and plays are quite high quality! They also host some interesting lecture series (like TEDtalks) and author speakers! Not to be missed!
