ABOUT THIS THEATRE
The Princess of Wales Theatre is a 2000-seat playhouse built in 1993 by David Mirvish, who also owns Torontos Royal Alexandra, Canon and Panasonic theatres. 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. There are three levels of seating in the Princess of Wales: Orchestra, Dress Circle and Balcony. All levels are served by elevator and are wheelchair accessible. Each level offers a lobby and bar/refreshment area. The award-winning firm Yabu-Pushelberg is responsible for the interior designs of the theatre's lobbies and lounges. The stunning murals that decorate the interior walls, the proscenium arch, the fly tower and the spectacular ceiling dome are the work of renowned contemporary artist Frank Stella. The murals cover over 10,000 square feet and represent the largest mural commission of the 20th century. The Princess of Wales is in the heart of Toronto's Entertainment District, steps from such major attractions as the CN Tower, the Rogers Centre (SkyDome) and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
