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.

Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 Star Rating

4 Star Rating Great place with a great atmosphere! Hamilton is amazing! One star minus for the huge line for washrooms and water that you need to pay. There's no way to have just a free glass of water. Please, guys, people paid 130 CAD for a ticket. Keep having good control over those who try to take photos during plays and those who are late.

5 Star Rating I came here to watch Hamilton, the musical. THAT was incredible and I highly recommend you see it, but that is not what this review is about.. This review is about the theatre itself, which was also amazing. Comfortable seats, good viewing from anywhere in the theatre, complex sets and lights for the best experience, and a full bar. Additionally, the bathrooms were very clean and handicap accessible, the sink had a cool water feature too that I have never seen before but I didn't take a photo of it, guess you will just have to go and see it for yourself!

5 Star Rating Went to see Hamilton the Musical, Canadian cast was superb. The staff was friendly and helpful, parking was available downstairs of the venue which was amazing- since Parking/Traffic in Toronto is not the greatest. The food stands were stocked with good varieties, can get expensive. The bathrooms were also clean. I have seen other shows here including Phantom and and Mean girls! Can’t wait whats next in store for Princess of Wales.

5 Star Rating I saw the Hamilton Show at the Princess of wales Theatre and you can say they “Blow us all Away!” Amazing Show and Cast! At first, I thought will this be any thing close to the Original cast, and they killed it! Love every moment of the show! This is a Must see if you’re a Hamilton fan. Great job cast! You represented Hamilton perfectly! And the theater was extremely exceptional as well 😉.

4 Star Rating It's cool. Seats are tight and small. I was on the top floor. Didn't get to see the ceiling art. Popcorn tiny. Okay. Bottled coke. Gender neutral washroom. Washroom clean and elevators.
