The Princess of Wales is the first privately owned and financed theatre built in Canada since 1907 - and the first anywhere in North America in over 30 years. Construction began on August 6, 1991, and the building opened to the public with the musical Miss Saigon on May 26, 1993.The theatre was built with maximum flexibility in mind. Its stage is one of the widest and deepest in North America - large enough to accommodate the most spectacular theatrical productions - and its technical facilities are state-of-the-art.2013/2014 Season:LES MISERABLES Begins Sept 27, 2013THE LION KING April 30 - June 15, 2014THE BOOK OF MORMON Begins Sept 16, 2014 « less

This theatre is gorgeous, and there is seriously not a bad seat in the house. We sat in the dress circle (first balcony) and it was amazing!

This was a humungous great open theatre with phenomenal performance of Le Miserable that I was always interested in and very cool with food bars behind and the whole 9 yards, I highly recommend if you enjoy theatres!

My company purchased tickets for the employees to visit the Princess of Wales Theater, to see the Sound Of Music being performed. The entrance was not swept at the time, so it looked dirty and uninviting. On entering, I was quite impressed with the decor and the very professional look.

We caught a performance of The Lion King and had a wonderful time at this theater. The seats were a little uncomfortable, but it wasn't too bad. The theater was clean and had the most beautiful mural on the ceiling. I enjoyed it and will be back the next time we're in town.

The theatre is gorgeous, the seats comfortable, and the lines of view clear. There are many restaurants nearby, and some public transportation. Parking however, is an expensive nightmare, as it is in most of downtown Toronto.

Excellent space and location - There is a wonderful restaurant located in the TIFF building next door called Luma that we visited before the show and after for drinks it was wonderful. The Lion King was a hit with the family and hopefully it will come back again!
