Built in 1993, this gigantic complex is a half-hour subway ride from downtown and located in a neighborhood with generally ho-hum food options. Best advice: Have a really early pre-theater dinner before making the trek. Programming is varied; one day the Tafelmusik presents a series of Vivaldi concertos; the next evening, a Montreal theater troupe visits to put on a gutsy rendition of the four-man play Bad Jews.
