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.

“Enjoy the theatre!”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

I always enjoy going to this theatre because it has pretty good sight lines even if you opt for cheap seats. It's best to go to the box office for tickets though and save yourself the high service charges on line.

“superb performance”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

As a Christmas gift we were given tickets to see War Horse. We would have attended on our own accord, having heard so much about the production. Everything about the production was excellent. The puppetry of the horses brought them to life. The special effects and performances are top notch. Add a back stage tour after the show and the evening was a complete theatrical experience.
Go see it!!

“Very Comfortable theatre”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

As a Mirvish subscriber I attend theatre performances at least 6 times a year. The Princess of Wales is the newest and most comfortable (in terms of leg room etc) of all the venues.

“Depends on the show BUT the Theatre is terrific”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Well, your enjoyment will probably depend more on the play you see or the behaviour of the guy sitting behind you -- but this theatre is modern and beautiful and a great place to see a show.
