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.

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.

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.

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