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 5

5 Star Rating fortunately or unfortunately this place will be torn down in the next few years to build a larger structure that will support what I believe will be condominiums on top and the Theater District on the bottom. It's a wonderful place to see a Toronto International Film Festival film. It was built to house Miss Saigon the play.

5 Star Rating Almost as good as Elgin theatre. Very good location, close to bars and restaurants if you're looking to grab a drink before or after the show.

4 Star Rating Maybe it's time to update the hand washing stations in the bathroom? They were cool when this theatre opened back in the 90's but it's not so cool anymore. Otherwise still a nice clean theatre, great stage, always good staff.
