Opened in 1991, the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto features a blend of the best concepts in theatre design from the last 200 years.

The theatre accommodates up to 2000 guests in comfortable seats, all of which are within 85 feet of one of the largest stages in the continent. There are three seating levels including two horseshoe shaped balconies.

The interior design is finely crafted with terrazzo floors, luminous mosaics of tile and glass, custom made light fixtures, much woodwork of a rare imported mahogany and 10,000 square feet of colourful murals by renowned artist Frank Stella. All of this was accomplished on a very compact plot of land in Toronto's entertainment district.

The Princess of Wales Theatre combines the best of both traditional and modern theatre design to provide an ideal setting to view your favourite play or musical production. For additional information about the Princess of Wales Theatre and upcoming concerts and events see the official website.

Princess of Wales Theatre Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating I love this beautiful theatre named after princess Diana with its beautiful architecture and interior design also featuring some great works of art. Is accessible by elevators. If I may snobbishly name one thing ( and the only thing) I don’t like about this theatre it would be the strange bathroom sink that despite almost being a work of art, is very strange and non practical.

4 Star Rating Good theatre, though the facilities could use a bit of an upgrade. No cupholders at the seats leaving you to hold your drinks or put them on the ground. Washrooms are small and down many flights of stairs. At the end of the day it’s about the show you go to see and the theatre does have a charming character.

4 Star Rating The theatre is great. Very grand and lots of seating. The American Express only bar was a great touch for the intermission. Although I did not technically have to show or use my Amex (but I did!) because you can pay with Amex or cash! The one downside is the toilets. Lots of walking up or down to the basement, and long line ups. Plan to go to the toilet, ie run there straight at intermission!

4 Star Rating Loved watching Aladdin! Great theatre, but only complaint is your view may be blocked since the seats aren’t elevated on the floor. Anything that was in the middle for me was out of sight.

5 Star Rating Beautiful theatre. Excellent customer service from everyone we came across. From the person directing people in the lobby, to the person at the ticket booth, to the ticket taker and, best of all was the funny guy manning the elevator after the show. One word of advice: if you have a small child with you, there are booster seats available at the coat check on the ground floor. Be sure to get one before heading up to the balcony or dress circle as they don't have them available there. I found the snacks to be more affordable than expected. We got a box of popcorn and two bottled pops and the total was about $15. Parking under the venue is $17 during a matinee show. I researched alternatives before going and found lots of more affordable parking within a block or two.
