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

“Nice Theatre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Went to see The Book of Mormon, it was a great show but the sound was terrible in comparison to other theatres, sometimes I could not make out any of the lyrics.

“Book of Mormon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

A really fun show. I'd go back and see it again.

I'm not a fan of this theatre however. We sat in the Orchestra this time and there isn't enough leg space. I also wonder how easily we could evacuate if there was a fire.

“Beautiful Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Saw Book of Mormon here. Lovely old theatre. Loads of personality. Only drawback is the serious lack of washrooms.
