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.

Reviewed August 5, 2013

it is a nice smallish theater; any seat would be good. The quality of the show we saw was excellent.

“See it before it is gone.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

This is a truly magnificent building with stunning artwork and elegant architecture. The plays that are shown are world class, some actually here before Broadway.
It is a good idea to leave some extra time to stroll or have a meal in this downtown entertainment district with abundant local features.

This theatre is a great place with no bad seats. Lots of good shows here and I have seen many of them. Very much would recommend it for any show.

“Love being downtown.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We went to Book of Mormon's with my friends from NY. Theatre is always good. I go to at least 4 productions a year. Leg room okay. Service during intermission at bar.
