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.

5 Star Rating Amazing venue. Pick a play that excites you and I'm sure you'll have a fabulous time in king street. They also served amazing ice cream during intermission which was well suited for the evening.

5 Star Rating Incredible, historic theater. Beautifully done inside. The performers are so talented, and they always put on a brilliant show. It’s easy to see that the entire crew puts care into creating a great production every single time.

5 Star Rating A beautiful theater with box seats and a wide seating space. The production we saw was The King and I and it was spectacular! I would imagine any production would be.. Lots of things flown in and a huge ship when Anna arrives in Siam. We were able to get great seats online the day before. I highly recommend seeing a production in this theater, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

5 Star Rating Nice theatre! Hard to believe it was only built in 1993.. styled to look much older (classic). Seating is comfortable, and no really bad seats. Don't forget to order drinks for the intermission ahead of time (at the bar) so you don't have to wait in line. They will be waiting for you at the side of the bar. I wish they would serve wine in those covered wine glasses like other to theatres. It is difficult to juggle everything and manage the small plastic wine glass when sitting. Wine glasses aside, it's a great theatre and I recommend seeing plays or musicals here!
