Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre
Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre Review
This jewel in the crown of the Toronto arts scene consists of two former vaudeville halls, built in 1913, one on top of the other. It is the last operating double-decker theater complex in the world and a Canadian National Historic Site. Until 1928, the theaters hosted silent-film and vaudeville legends like George Burns, Gracie Allen, and Edgar Bergen with Charlie McCarthy. Today's performances are still surrounded by magnificent settings: Elgin's dramatic gold-leaf-and-cherub-adorned interior and the Winter Garden's A Midsummer Night's Dream–inspired decor, complete with tree branches overhead. These stages host Broadway-caliber musicals, comedians, jazz concerts, operas, and Toronto International Film Festival screenings. The Elgin, downstairs, has more than 1,500 seats; the 992-seat Winter Garden is upstairs. Guided tours (C$12) are given Thursday at 5 pm and Saturday at 11 am.
