Does anyone know if this theatre is wheelchair accessible? Last time I was there was to see Clybourne Park (a couple years ago), and I seem to recall lots of stairs. Cast sounds good.

From the Canadian Stage website for the Berkeley Street Theatre (downstairs):

"Accessible seating in the Orchestra. Please inform our box office representatives if you require accessible seating when booking your tickets, and check-in with the Front of House team when you arrive."

Really enjoyed this! Some difficulty hearing the words in the chorus numbers cos they only use floor mics but damn proud that they went w just projection otherwise. Very simple set in fact very reminiscent of the Encore settings. They added in Marry Me a Little, which was nice but lost the point of TicToc when they went w/out the voice overs. Dan Chameroy sang Bobby really well but his acting of the part was more mmm sketched in instead of nuanced.
To be fair- when a show loses their director 10 days in & 2 cast members the fact that they did as well as they have is a huge compliment to the cast's talents. AND the show is selling out too.
Standouts for me were Nia Vardalos as Jenny- caught the comedy of the role perfectly, Brent Carver as Harry ( cos I love Sorry/Grateful and he sang it sooo purty)Carly Street as Amy- nailed Getting Married and even found some great bits of business that i don't recall seeing others do in the role. Cleopatra Williams was fantastic as Marta- great rendition of Another 100 People and when u think she and Lindsay Fraser had like 5 days b4 they were doing U Could Drive a Person Crazy- mad props to both of them.
Louise Pitre practically stopped the show w The Ladies who Lunch- loved her take on the "hat" line. Also the everybody rise- different and liked it muchly.
Like I said Dan Chameroy sang Bobby very well, his Being Alive had a nice arc to it.
Heard that Adam Brazier has moved on the Charlottetown Fest- and they r actively seeking a new artistic director - hope they find someone good so we can keep getting productions of this quality.

I was at the final performance today. I got the on-stage seats - not because I had any desire to be on the stage because the tickets were so much cheaper. I thought that the cast was wonderful. It's a privilege to get to see such a talented, experienced cast in such an intimate theatre. I was seated at the table between the 2 stage entrance/exit doors, and they all looked so sad when they exited the stage at the end! You could tell that they were very passionate about the show.
