Owner description: The Princess of Wales Theatre is a 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.

Nice theatre to visit. Good location. They also have great shows. Hopefully this theatre will not be torn down.

“War Horse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

We travel all the way from London (UK, not Ontario!) and go to watch a play from the West End? Some of the "English" rural accents were a bit quirky (more Irish than Devon), but that hardly spoilt the play. It was beautifully choreographed, well paced and very emotive. A wonderful evening out!

“Old fashioned theatre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

During our two week stay we visited the theatre to see Carrie Fisher. Theatre was nice, but due to being old that upper level (where we were seated) was very cramped. I am short and even my leg room was barely enough
