Last night the historic Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres in Toronto celebrated their 100th Anniversary with a star-studded fundraiser to raise money to restore the gorgeous chandelier which once existed within it's gorgeous interior.

Hosted by Colin Mochrie and Deb McGrath, the event featured performances from shows that have graced the stages of these theatres in years gone by, as well as stories and anecdotes from the last century. The recent cast of the all-Canadian production of Cats were on hand, as well as cast members from the current Stratford Festival production of Tommy and Opera Atelier.

In addition to the performances, there was a special video of Honorary Chair of the Gala Christopher Plummer delivering a toast, and Producer Marlene Smith played a beautiful rendition of happy birthday as the grand finale.

BWW was thrilled to be on hand to bring its readers photos from the event.
