The Princess of Wales Theatre is a 2000-seat playhouse built by the father and son producing team of David and Ed Mirvish, just a block away from their historic Royal Alexandra Theatre. The Princess of Wales is the first privately owned and financed theatre built in Canada since 1907 - and the first anywhere in North America in over 30 years. Construction began on August 6, 1991, and the building opened to the public with the musical Miss Saigon on May 26, 1993.The theatre was built with maximum flexibility in mind. Its stage is one of the widest and deepest in North America - large enough to accommodate the most spectacular theatrical productions - and its technical facilities are state-of-the-art.

Saw Strictly Ballroom the Musical there. Great show. Beautiful theatre. The show follows the movie plot very well. Casting was great. My only complaints would be that the character Scott Hastings needs a better song. The lyrics to "On the Edge" need improvement. His song...More

Strictly Ballroom was an excellent show. Lots of dancing and a love story also. I loved the dancing and costumes. It's one of those shows that leaves you with a smile on your face and an urge to dance.

Not much leg room if you happen to be tall and the seats are terribly lumpy........LOVED STRICTLY BALLROOM so it made up for the seat issue

As far as I remember, there is just popcorn, candy and icecream bars sold. We have taken in snacks because of the childrens allergies and there never has been a problem.

Parking is in City lots - best way? park at a subway station and take the subway - so much easier and stress free - 2 block walk from the St. Andrew (King St W) subway station
