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.

Love the decor, the seats and the sound that comes form such a well designed building. Great shows are offered here and ticket prices are great for being in such a old and royalty type setting

Thank superwell

It was fantastic and the seats were great.
Rush tickets were $28 on a Sunday afternoon, and I would have paid three times that. It was a great show.
The theatre is a beautiful place which I enjoy frequenting each and everytime I can.

The Princess of Wales is my favourite theatre in Toronto and I have attended many, many performances here over the years. It has the best women's washrooms of any theatre I know. It is too bad that David Mirvish chose this location to build condominiums on. Maybe the bottom will drop out of real estate in Toronto, and this wonderful theatre will be allowed to continue.

Very nice theatre, and a great place to see a show. Well-renovated, large theatre with history. Very comfortable, and good acoustics.
