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.

Nice, old theater. Good sight-lines. Comfortable seating. Good acoustics. Nothing outstanding. Parking on site (very expensive).

Saw the illusionists at this locations. They had a very large screen that dropped down for some of the closer stuff. Even though the seats were further back we still had a great view.

Great venue! Usually presents very good performances. Wonderful location surrounded by different good restaurant options. The parking is a little expensive. Better to park one block away to avoid high costs and the lines that usually happen at the end of the performances.

Wonderful Theatre that hosts a number of Mirvish Productions, live performances. Bar/Lounge, and many restaurants inside, and surrounding. The seating is very comfortable, with plenty of leg room. Good views of the stage from any angle. There you will also find the Canada Walk of Fame Stars, that stretches along King Street. My favorite production there was Les Misérables
