Royal Alexandra Theatre

Theater in Entertainment & Financial Districts

The 'Royal Alex,' as she is sometimes affectionately known, is one of the more impressive theaters in the city and home to splashy Broadway musicals. Built in 1907, it's among the oldest continuously operating theaters in Canada, its stage graced by some of the most talented 20th-century artists, including Orson Welles, Fred and Adele Astaire and Edith Piaf.

Balcony-ticket holders, prepare to climb many stairs: there's no elevator.
