Royal Alexandra Theatre
260 King St W, Toronto, ON, Canada
NileGuide Expert tip:
The upper balcony is very steep, so the 'cheap' seats at the back of the balcony still have a decent view of the stage. You're high up, but you're not too far back from the stage. If, however, you have an issue with heights, it's best to stick to the orchestra seats.
The Royal Alexandra Theatre (named, with her permission, for Alexandra, wife of King Edward VII and great-grandmother of Canada's current Queen, Elizabeth II) was built in 1907 and has been operating as a theatre ever since. Bought and restored in the early 1960s by the Mirvish family, whose name is now synonymous with big-budget theatre in Toronto, the Alex was also the hub around which the city's entertainment district was developed. Today, the 1500-seat theatre is home to a variety of touring Broadway plays and musicals, as well as the occasional home-grown production.
