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.

Rated 4.5 out of 5Princess of Wales Theatre Star Rating

4 Star Rating Saw the magicians and as a group they were ok... a few outstanding ones but nothing that gave me the wow factor. The theatre itself was more impressive

3 Star Rating Don't get balcony seats unless you aren't really interested in the show and don't mind being uncomfortable. The seats we were in were quite small, uncomfortable and close together. By the time the show was half over my back was killing me. There are not enough aisles down the rows of seats, so you have to stand up to let people past ridiculously often. There is underground parking below the theatre, cost us $20 to park for a 2 hour show. The parking garage is not very tall, so if you want to park there, leave your pickup truck at home and take the wife's car. The show we saw was pretty good (the illusionists).

4 Star Rating We went to watch the Illusionists at this venue last December 2017. It was a nice, small but cozy theatre. We had a good view of the stage from where we sat except that the people in front of us were too tall that I sometimes had to strain my neck to see the whole stage. It was nice that popcorn and other snacks were sold at the lounge but it would have been nicer to have it available closer to the theatre doors. The lounge is located downstairs and with my problematic knees I had a little bit of trouble going up and down the stairs. Elevator is available but because of the number of people it will take a while before you can get a chance to get in. The show was good in my opinion. My husband also enjoyed it. Oh and did I mention that the sink and faucets in the washroom were pretty cool? Too bad I didn’t bring my phone went I went in. Hehe. 😊

5 Star Rating I went to see the Illusionists at the Princess of Wales Theatre. We were seated in the dress circle level and our seats were awesome. I don't think there are any bad seats in this theater. The sound was great too. Overall this was a fantastic experience and a fabulous show.

2 Star Rating What a beautiful theater, very intimate. The sound is very clear and you get a good view of the stage from any seating area. The seats are big and very comfortable. Ushering staff may need to be retrained because the wouldn't let me take a picture of the stage even before the event started. How can I capture the moment/memory if cant take a picture prior to the event starting?!?!?!?
