Went for a musical, personnel was kind and attentive, seats were as good as can be, as well as comfortable. There's a bar you can go to during the break, but it«s a shame they allow people carrying drinks back to the show.

Recently had pre-show drinks before the show. Poor overworked bartenders were grace personified, even the poor Scots lad I thought was Irish! Lovely venue where it seems every seat provides a view of the stage.Great experience all round & no numb bum afterwards!

This theatre may not be the biggest but it's definitely one of the smartest and cleanest with generous seats. The circle does induce vertigo, it's very high and very steep, but once you're seated you'll be comfy! Book of Mormon is well worth seeing but not for the easily offended!

Other than the Book of Mormon being an amazing, hilarious show, the service at the Prince of Wales Theatre was impeccable! I left my phone at the theatre after watching the show and was really worried for a day because it was closed the following day - however, when i arrived there upon its opening, the staff were really approachable...

Vibrant show with lots of singing and dancing. Very talented cast. From the creators of Southpark. Small theatre so all seats have a great view.

This a lovely small theatre with good seating and a good atmosphere. The musical was fun with energetic dancing. The story line was very creative and funny. The cast performed very well.

We booked seats online and collected 5 minutes before the performance began. Easy to collect and no waiting. The interior is stylishly furnished with comfortable seats and great views of the stage from all aspects. The toilets were clean and easily accessible.
