Owner description: 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.

Outstanding choreography. Wonderful to walk out of a show humming the tunes. Deserved all the awards it garnered to date.

The Princess of Wales Theatre has great site lines and very comfortable seats. Easy access to all the rows in the orchestra. An American In Paris is a five star production with sets that amaze, strong actors who mesmerize the audience with their dancing and songs. An uplifting and entertaining evening.

One of the best I've seen. The Choreography was outstanding as well as the costumes and sets. Worth seeing if you like the music of Gershwin.

We once again visited the Princess of Wales Theatre which is always a great venue to watch a show. The time we saw the Illusionists. It was a spectacular show that was very entertaining and had us in fits of laughter. We had fabulous seats 7 rows from the stage. An incredibly entertaining evening.

We had great seats in the orchestra section right in the middle. I fought myself smiling all the way through the show. The scenes and use of multi media was genius. Toronto has world class theatre for sure!
