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

“War Horse on stage!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

I loved the Princess of Wales Theatre. Although it fit a few hundred people, it still had an intimate quality to it. The stage show of War Horse was simply breathtaking, and I would recommend it to anyone.

“Large ornate theatre with good acoustics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Saw War Horse here and thoroughly enjoyed the production. People moved in and out easily in spite of the crowds. The seats are narrow, but other theatres have even narrower seating... so about average, I guess. Lineups for the Ladies, as is usual at most theatres. Why IS this???
