Venue Overview

One of Toronto’s largest playhouses, the Ed Mirvish first opened in 1920 as the Pantages Theatre. Built by Nathan L. Nathanson and designed by prolific theatre architect Thomas Lamb, the venue originated as a combination vaudeville and motion picture theatre. In 1930, the theatre was dubbed The Imperial, exclusively becoming a cinema under the ownership of Famous Players, who continued to manage the venue for fifty years. Renovations occurred in 1972 and later in 1989, when it reopened with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera. In 1999, the theatre was purchased by Clear Channel Communications and renamed the Canon Theatre, before being turned over to Mirvish Productions.

In 2008, Mirvish Productions bought the theatre, transforming it to host large-scale musicals including We Will Rock You, Jersey Boys and Chicago. 2011 saw David Mirvish officially rename the iconic building the Ed Mirvish Theatre, in honour of his father. With an ornate, lavish gold and royal blue interior, the theatre has a seating capacity of 2,200 and due to renovations is built for contemporary comfort. Split across the two vast levels of the Orchestra and Mezzanine, good sight-lines are available throughout.

The Orchestra and Mezzanine are roughly the same capacity, with the former consisting of five blocks of seating varying in size that all offer exemplary views of the stage. The Mezzanine is situated directly above and is a great option for large-scale musicals. Offering a range of views for a variety of prices, seating is split into multiple sections. There are six Boxes per section that all offer close-up, side-on views of the stage.

• Wheelchair and assisted seating
• Restrooms and accessible restrooms

Good value seats

Those looking to purchase tickets on a budget should opt for seats in the Mezzanine, as you can achieve a panoramic and unobstructed view of the stage, despite feeling distant from the action. Row X of the Mezzanine is a great option for bargain hunters, whilst those looking for cheaper Orchestra seats should go for the rear of the seating in rows R-V.

Premium seats

Seats in the front and centre of the Orchestra and Mezzanine offer the best views in the Ed Mirvish Theatre, complete with a premium price tag. Rows EE-D in the Orchestra and AA-BB in the Mezzanine allow you to have the most immersive experience, whilst surrounding seats in the front-centre of both sections offer an incredible evening.

Good seat. Still feels relatively close to the stage but far enough back you have a clear, wide view of everything. It is slightly to the side but it is really barely noticeable. Plenty of legroom. The only thing to watch out for is if someone tal... More

This is a great, reasonably priced choice of seat. The legroom is perfect, there’s room to stretch out, and the seat itself is cushioned nicely for your comfort. The view is pretty clear if you move slightly to the left, and this show never fails... More
