Venue Overview

One of Toronto’s larger venues, the Princess of Wales Theatre originally opened in 1993 with the Canadian premiere of Boublil and Schönberg’s Miss Saigon. Built as a sister theatre to the nearby Royal Alexandra, the name honours Princess Diana and recalls Toronto’s first playhouse. Designed by Peter Smith, with interior design by Yabu Pushelberg and artwork by Frank Stella, the venue is a contemporary build, but echoes the intimacy of a 19th century playhouse. Commissioned by Ed and David Mirvish, the venue was one of the first privately-built theatres in North America to be erected in over 50 years, dedicated to housing large-scale touring productions.

Featuring one of the deepest stages in North America, the Mirvish Productions-owned theatre has housed a variety of musicals over time, including smash-hits Beauty & the Beast, Cats, Les Misérables and The Lion King. With a seating capacity of 2,000, the Princess of Wales combines modern and traditional styles, and is designed for comfort and good sight-lines, built across three sections that include the Orchestra, Dress Circle and Balcony.

The Orchestra is the largest section, with over 1,000 seats split into 5 blocks of seating that all offer great views of the stage. The Dress Circle has a more intimate capacity of over 450 seats and offers excellent views of large-scale musicals. The Balcony is a similar size to the Dress Circle and is the highest section in the venue, often offering the most affordable tickets. Two Boxes are situated at the front of the Orchestra, with multiple side-on Boxes available in the upper levels that offer a variety of views of the stage.

Good value seats

For those looking to purchase tickets on a budget, seats in the Balcony offer a comprehensive view of the stage for affordable prices, despite the action feeling far away. The very rear of the Orchestra and Dress Circle are also a good option, as the modern build of the theatre ensures good views from most locations.

Premium seats

Seats in the front and centre of the Orchestra and Dress Circle offer the best views in the Princess of Wales Theatre, complete with a premium price tag. Rows A-E in both sections allow you to see the entire stage in impeccable detail, whilst rows AA-HH of the Orchestra allow for the most immersive experience.

Pros: a good, wide view of the stage (particularly good for large scale musicals with large group numbers). The rows are tiered at the back of the theatre so your row is slightly higher than the row in front of it. Cons: It’s a bit far back in th... More

Great seat, feels very close to the stage without being too close, and directly in the center so you don't miss anything. Plenty of legroom. Although the rake is slight here, the seats are appropriately spaced so you are not looking directly at th... More
