Faulty Towers: The Dining Experience
- The experience: a three-course dinner at possibly the worst-run hotel in England
- Your host: Basil Fawlty, the bristly hotelier made famous by John Cleese in Fawlty Towers
- Also attending: Basil’s domineering wife, Sybil, and less-than-bilingual waiter Manuel—all played by a cast that embodies the whip-smart comedic timing of the original actors
- What’s in store: fan-favorite setpieces from the classic britcom, crowned the “Best British Television Series of All Time” in 2000 by the British Film Institute
- What else: rampant abuse of Spaniards, more than a few mentions of the war, teetering towers of lies upon lies upon lies
- Where’s the stage: all around you. Theater producer and Fawlty Towers super-fan Alison Ollard designed the staging so that you play your own role in the show
Sony Centre For The Performing Arts
The largest soft-seat theatre in Canada, the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts is perhaps most famous for its overhanging marquee outside. The diagonal canopy and its snake-like rows of lights were restored to their original form in 2010, along with the facility’s wood, brass, and marble accents. Inside the lobby, York Wilson’s mural, The Seven Lively Arts, fills eyes with fractured, panoramic representations of various artistic media, from slanted musical staffs to menacing Greek theatre masks.
