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.

The theatre is beautiful and we had excellent seats. Sat in the front row of the dress circle, lots of leg room, the acoustics were incredible, the lighting amazing we loved it. My biggest complaint was the school trip of grade 7 maybe 8 students that sat directly behind us in the theatre, no one really has control over that.

I took my mom and 9-year-old daughter to see the War Horse last weekend. Am I ever glad that we all got to share this experience! It was hard to believe that a mechanical horse moved about the stage by 3 masterful artists could have such a strong impact. It is certainly one of a kind production that we will remember, especially since we might not have a chance to see anything else at the Princess of Whales theatre...

Went to see Warhorse before it closed. Not a bad seat in the house for viewing although, as with all these old theatres, knee room was a bit of an issue. Great acoustics throughout. Can't believe that this place will be razed to allow condos to be built!! Hope they salvage as much as possible and put into a new venue....
Everyone must go and see the place before it closes......

Went here to see War Horse. Went in on the off chance of getting a ticket at short notice. The lady at the desk was so helpful. She managed to find me a seat in an excellent position for the performance that evening. She even recommended a good place for me to eat prior to the performance.
The show was unbelievable. Even had me crying at one point! Brilliant experiance, and excellent staff.

War Horse is an amazing show! We were mesmerized by the horses. Fabulous experience! Lovely music. Best show we've seen in a long time.
