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

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!

This is my favourite theatre in Toronto. The seats are comfortable and there is no bad seat in the house even though it's so big. I always felt that the Princess of Wales Theatre had a really good angle in terms of how their seats are aligned.

Went to see the Lion King. It was amazing. We had balcony view but I think I would prefer the dress circle next time. Still had a great view but looking down on the performers a bit. Great time!

I had never seen the Lion King on stage and from the opening curtain I knew I had been missing out. The Princess of Wales theatre is the perfect venue for a production like this. It added just the right ambiance to the towering force the Lion King bestows upon the audience. From Rafiki's stage presence, voice and timing to... More
