Toronto gets an elaborate new dinner theatre

Amidst the clubs and restaurants that dot King West, a new type of entertainment venue is slated to open in September, one that bills itself as an elevated dinner theatre experience.

Candyland will be located at 619 King St. W, and it'll be reminiscent of places such as The Box in Manhattan and Cirque le Soir in London.

Throughout the night, guests will see three or four short performances with each one lasting between 10 and 15 minutes. As a variety show of sorts, these brief interludes of entertainment will include circus acts, such as ring dancers, as well as a blues band and other theatrical sketches.

Since this will be dinner theatre, Chef Frank Parhizgar, behind Frank's Kitchen, will serve up a menu made up of upscale snacks and small plates. It'll cost you $20 cover plus the price of food, which will be served until late.

What do you think of the Candyland concept? Let us know in the comments.
