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 Princess of Wales Theatre!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

This is my favourite theatre in Toronto. The seats are comfortable and there is no bad seat in the house even though it's so big. I always felt that the Princess of Wales Theatre had a really good angle in terms of how their seats are aligned.

“The Lion King”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Went to see the Lion King. It was amazing. We had balcony view but I think I would prefer the dress circle next time. Still had a great view but looking down on the performers a bit. Great time!
