Overview
More
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.

Take in a show at the Princess of Wales. Great ambience, friendly staff, comfortable seating. e Excellent sound acoustics lets you hear every word and the music sounds crisp and clear. Close to the subway and excellent restaurants around. Makes for a wonderful experience.

There is no formal dress code at the Pricess of Wales. You are welcome to wear whatever you choose. These days, most people dress quite casually.
