Other Broadway Venues in Toronto

The theatre was first opened in 1920 as a vaudeville and movie theatre in the Pantages theatre circuit. At the time, it had a seating capacity of 3373, and was the largest and most elegant cinema in Canada. It was originally named the Pantages Theatre, then the Imperial Theatre and later the Canon Theatre, until it was renamed in 2011 after Ed Mirvish, a well-known businessman and theatre impresario. The venue was listed on the City of Toronto Heritage Property Inventory in 1979, and in 1988, the theatre gained heritage protection, as it was designated under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Sherlock Holmes

October 27-November 8, 2015

Perhaps best known for his quirky choice of movie roles in the 1990s with turns in Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Scream and Never Been Kissed, Hollywood actor David Arquette is set to take on the role of the greatest detective that ever graced the pages of a book, Sherlock Holmes. Indeed it may seem an atypical casting choice, given the recent resurgence of Holmes fever (we're looking at you Mr. Cumberbatch), but Arquette is ready to put his own spin on the legendary gentleman of mystery, wryly stating "Some may think I'm an odd choice," he said. "I am. I'm odd, but thankfully so is he."

Dirty Dancing

November 24-29, 2015

Dirty Dancing treats you to an unprecedented live experience, exploding with achingly cool music, romance, and above all, sensational dancing. This touring production hews closely to the movie, packing in all its anthemic songs and cheesy one-liners with aplomb. It delivers everything the audiences can hope for - lots of sexy dancing and plenty of rock 'n' roll!

Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella - The Musical

star 1star 2star 3star 4

December 1, 2015-January 10, 2016

Rogers and Hammerstein's classic adaptation has been reincarnated for the 21st Century, with a new book by Douglas Carter Beane that updates the fairytale with new sub-plots, whilst keeping the heart of this wonderful story of Cinderella, her glass slipper and the Prince who falls for her. This fresh and sweet revival is an opulent affair, with high spirited choreography, stunning costumes, against the soundtrack of R&H's best songs.


May 17-29, 2016

20 years after Riverdance first took the world's breath away with its explosive combination of traditional Irish music and dance, Michael Flatley's fine footwork continues to evolve, captivating audiences from East to West as its fan base grows steadily. This remarkable progression now culminates in a 20th Anniversary World Tour, heralding the company's triumphant return to the world stage.
