Since its first performance in the United Kingdom in 2006, The Merchants of Bollywood has earned a slew of positive praise from a variety of respected sources, including The Times of London and The New York Times. The show, which features a cast of 40 performers from the Film City of Mumbai, utilizes extravagant costumes and upbeat English and Hindi songs to depict the glamourous story of a famous filmmaking dynasty. Performed in English, the show bonds elements of colour, movement, and melodrama to entertain audiences with an excitement paralleled only by finding a $20 bill in your winter coat.
Since 1960, the Sony Centre for The Performing Arts has served as Canada's largest soft-seat theatre space for an assortment of performances and shows. The centre recently opened from reconstruction, and now provides patrons with restored wood, brass, and marble, as well as new washrooms, upgraded seating and flooring, and complimentary hugs.
- This flashy, splashy and thinly fictionalised account of generational conflict and inevitable reconciliation within a real-life Bollywood dance dynasty is a huge blast of fun. – Donald Hutera, Times
- It is what you should expect and what you get. And it will surely put a smile on your face. – Jill Sykes, Sunday Morning Herald
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.
