Was the best part of my Toronto adventure! Saw Cannibal! The musical :)

Built on the site of the old New Yorker Theatre, this refurbished, state-of-the art theatre is home to many travelling shows coming through the city. The theatre with a capacity of 701, is not far from Toronto's gay and lesbian community or swanky Yorkville, where there are lots of restaurants and cafes.
