Buddies in Bad Times Theatre

During Doors Open, take a behind-the-scenes look around Buddies in Bad Times Theatre — the world's largest and longest-running queer theatre. Built in 1912, the building served different purposes before Toronto Workshop Productions opened here in the 1960s. Since then, the space has been a hub for alternative theatre, with Buddies (opened in 1994) being awarded a 40-year lease.
