The Princess of Wales Theater is a lovely historic theater in beautiful condition. You are allowed to take drinks to your seat which is very civilized. There should be a better way of selling concessions during the intermission rather than a 10 minute line up...More

Excellent production on the career of The Temptations - energetic, dynamic, fast-moving, great choreography, wonderful songs. Standing ovation from capacity crowd at the end. Well worth seeing - even better than Jersey Boys. Don'y miss it.

Penultimate theatre of the grand old style. We were in Row R and had fantastic view of stage with perfect sound. The entertainers were magnificent and never let down their enthusiasm for a second. The music and choreography were FA!

You can see quite nice shows there. But the seats are so uncomfortable! And there is really not much room for the legs although i'm only 5'5!

I’ve seen many shows over the years at the Princess of Wales and enjoy the experience every single time.

This production was fabulous. The performers were so talented and energetic ...and seemed to be enjoying themselves too! I could watch this one again (AND AGAIN). Watch out for awful traffic jams around this theater though. Not a pleasant way to end a joyful experience.

If you're in Row AAA, you have an unobstructed view of the stage and the actors on it. If you want to feel as a spectator that you're a part of the performance, this is as close as you'll get. I loved being able to see the... More

The third tier, if you can get seats at the front of it shouldn't be too bad, but I think it might also depend on the interest in the show as well as their ages. I generally sit in the first couple of rows in the second... More

There is no formal dress code at the Pricess of Wales. You are welcome to wear whatever you choose. These days, most people dress quite casually.
