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.

Not much leg room if you happen to be tall and the seats are terribly lumpy........LOVED STRICTLY BALLROOM so it made up for the seat issue

We have seen Kinky Boots and Strictly Ballroom at this theatre and both experiences were outstanding - acoustics and views of stage especially good.

I am a big fan of musicals, especially ones done really close to the original. Strictly Ballroom was amazing and the dancing and music was in perfect sync

Strictly Ballroom is a dazzling, energetic, lighthearted vehicle for non-stop fabulous dancing and bright pop music

I loved when the Spanish flamenco dancing started! We took the theatre/dinner package and it was excellent! The food at Kit Kat (restaurant of our choice amongst the list) was very, very good.. Loved the show afterwards.

As far as I remember, there is just popcorn, candy and icecream bars sold. We have taken in snacks because of the childrens allergies and there never has been a problem.

Parking is in City lots - best way? park at a subway station and take the subway - so much easier and stress free - 2 block walk from the St. Andrew (King St W) subway station
