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.

A wonderful show that spares no expense on the scenery and props. Fantastic performance by the Actors leaving me with a new appreciation of the venue. Ideal seating for all, however some sound clarity is required during multiple sound streams.

This is a very classy theatre with a great balance between old and modern, and the production of the Phantom of the opera is the best I have seen. It was brilliant

We went last night and have seen the original performance several times years ago. This production is a bit different which was refreshing. The staging was pretty neat. The story this times shows the 'darker' side of the Phantom, mostly in the 2nd and final...More

This theatre is wonderful, not a bad seat in the house, holds 2088 people. The acoustics are great, there is of course a live orchestra in the pit. Seating is comfortable and the staff are incredibly friendly and attentive. Parking under the theatre is handy...More

While the show itself was amazing the theatre needs updating. Seats provided little to no leg room and insufficient washroom space to meet the demands of patrons during intermission.

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
