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.

Was fortunate to attend the Phantom on June 17 for the Saturday matinee performance. Even though we had seats in the very upper balcony, our view of the stage was great! The sound was also excellent. The only downfall was someone behind me spilling popcorn...More

We saw the Phantom of The Opera at Princess of Wales Theatre. It was an excellent show! Great cast! Great performance! Service/usher staff were good as well. I highly recommend it.

I’m a huge fan of Phantom and Andrew Lloyd Webber. I’ve seen the NYC production 4 or 5 times over the last 4 years and the London West End production in November 2016. Unfortunately, the Toronto (summer 2018) production is not near as good as...More

Good night out. We were celebrating out anniversary. We saw phantom years ago so had expectations it delivered although we remembered the sets years ago were better.

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.
