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.

Felt transfixed by a teleporter in between a time and space when crowds would watch storytellers project with their own voices in an intimate setting, and current high-tech unobtrusive equipment making mind-bending A/V impacts on our experience. See whatever you can here, you'll love shows...More

As part of Mirvish subscription we saw Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. Excellent production in an excellent very comfortable theatre. Mirvish subscription is such great value. We are so fortunate in Toronto.

A fantastic, high energy and unique production of a heartwarming book! My adult children and I had read the book and wondered how it could become a play. We were all thrilled and entertained by it!

The "Curious incident of the Dog in the night-time" was a wonderful show, I took my 12 year old daughter there and we had a blast. I didn't use any of the facilities beyond seeing the show, over all a great venue.

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.
