    I think I'd most like to see someone's who performs a genre that I've never really experienced before, such as spoken word.

    Love the Elgin Winter Theatre- so great to be able to enjoy culture and theatre in the heart of downtown Toronto. The Elgin always put on great shows and bring in productions and artists from around the world. Always great to have a theatre support both local and international artists!

    The part about the Winter Garden Theatre that I find so magical is that everything was done by hand. More than 65,000 Square ft of new space was created when they restored the theatre. All the walls were delicately hand painted. 65,000 square ft. Can you imagine how long that took?! Not to mention after painting everything, they proceeded to weave 5,000 beach tree branches by hand to decorate. Nowadays everything is done by machines and it’s all so modern, making these theatres even more magical because you KNOW that it was created with so much care and beauty.
