“A must see when in T.O”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

My hubby and I went and saw Under the Big Top on Sat March 23 2013 and had a wonderful time. For those of you who are not familiar with FPP; it is a venue created by Diane Dupuy in the 70's, is fully run by developmentally challenged adults who are not only inspirational, they cook delicious food and provide a very enjoyable show for the whole family. FPP is a made in Canada gem. One warning though.... if you have prejudices, are a bigot, or feel uncomfortable around developmentally challenged adults then this show may not be for you but you should visit it anyway.

We had people from the ages of 12-50 and we all loved the food and performance, it was creative, entertaining and amazing. The food was really great and everyone was so happy and wonderful to be around! I will absolutely recommend this to everyone I know! And the decor was bright and fun but also classy!

“Fabulous Experience”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We attended "Under the Big Top" last night at Famous People Players. The food, entertainment (which not only included the theatre production, but Irish Dancers and live music during dinner) and atmosphere were fabulous! Definitely worth numerous returns.

“Why doesn't this pop up as Top 10 Things to do in Toronto?”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

What an amazing production. A small venue with happy servers and performers and a delicious dinner beforehand. I went with my mother and 11 year old niece and enjoyed it thoroughly. I am glad that they change the show often because I want to go again....my husband wants me to take him! It is incredible to see how these cartoon-type characters come to life on stage by the team efforts of the performers who often have 2-3 people moving one character and its so life-like! Can't imagine the amount of work that goes into it.

Although the food was fantastic and on the gourmet side, it would be nice to be able to ask how to have your steak cooked. I'm a rare to medium rare type of steak eater and they were all cooked as probably medium well or well done....Just a minor detail....otherwise, hats off to everyone running the show there!!!
