Owner description: The Princess of Wales Theatre is a new, 2000-seat playhouse built by the father and son producing team of David and Ed Mirvish, just a block away from their historic Royal Alexandra Theatre. 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

I love this theatre. I have seen many shows here and can not wait to return! It is such a beautiful place and great seats no matter what seat you get! I look forward to the next show I get to see here!

We were lucky enough to catch ‘The Book of Mormon’ on their Canada Tour, which was amazing. Attending at least one show or musical at the Theatre is definitely worth it! Note: Check their website beforehand and book your tickets at least a week in advance. If you want good seats, it’s best to buy directly from the Box Office.... More

This is a beautiful theater and no matter where you sit you will have a good seat. We have been here several times, most recently it was to enjoy a film during TIFF. We were up in the nosebleeds and still enjoyed the movie and the commentary with the celebs afterwards.

My boyfriend and I booked ticket's to see Blades on Stage 1.5 months in advance. I was a little discouraged because so many great deals were available closer to the date. When we arrived, the usher told us to go to the box office because there was a surprise for us. Since the upper balcony (where our seats were) did... More

What a marvelous theatre. Plenty of washroom facilities, nice, comfortable waiting areas, seats in theatre are plush and comfortable. Be prepared for lots of traffic congestion and taking your time exiting.

Great seats, comfortable, quick bar service, clean toilets, friendly staff. Found the seats were quite close together so you had to stand up to let other customers get by.

We went to the show since we were in town. The performers were top notch. I liked the story line, but wasn't so thrilled with how it was delivered. Not a show that I would want my parents or my grandchildren to attend with me. I like to think that I am open minded and can appreciate differences and can... More

Awesome!!!! Sad to see it go! Been many times and other than having a larger man sitting beside me in my $130 seat the evening with my beautiful wife was perfect

We went as a party of 3 seniors. Very disappointed in the " story line " of this production. Full of repeated slurs on Mormons , Christians, etc. Full of swearing, and curses. The staging, singing and dancing were well done, obviously talented people.The music was fun, but very similar to old camp songs; not original.... This is Not worth... More
