Princess Of Wales Theatre, Toronto Reviews
Nice theatre! Hard to believe it was only built in 1993.. styled to look much older (classic). Seating is comfortable, and no really bad seats. Don't forget to order drinks for the intermission ahead of time (at the bar) so you don't have to wait in line. They will be waiting for you at the side of the bar. I wish they would serve wine in those covered wine glasses like other to theatres. It is difficult to juggle everything and manage the small plastic wine glass when sitting. Wine glasses aside, it's a great theatre and I recommend seeing plays or musicals here!
A beautiful theater with box seats and a wide seating space. The production we saw was The King and I and it was spectacular! I would imagine any production would be.. Lots of things flown in and a huge ship when Anna arrives in Siam. We were able to get great seats online the day before. I highly recommend seeing a production in this theater, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Visited this venue to watch Cameron Mackintosh's production of Phantom of the Opera. The musical itself was good though nowhere close to the Broadway production of this musical in New York City but that is to be expected. Reserving this review specifically to the venue itself, it is a great theater, very spacious and good seating arrangement. The rationale for a 3 star review is during a critical moment of the performance, the ushers allowed patrons to walk in over a half hour into the show and of course our view was obscured as they walked in front of our view. If they were going to allow patrons in so late, they should have at least instructed them to wait until the segment we were watching was completed before allowing them to block our view and it did affect the quality of my experience. There is such a thing as theater etiquette but clearly this is not Broadway and I was reminded of this by this experience.
Great theatre located on King Street West in the Heart of Toronto across from City Hall at King Street West and John Street. Very Vibrant area with lots of other venues including the CN Tower and Rogers Dome Stadium. Great sound, Picture but seating is not for two hours be prepared for a painful rear.
My first time back since they had renovated the theatre and it is a lovely and comfortable place to see a play. Saw Phantom of the Opera and it was fantastic. However, with the low hanging balcony if you are sitting underneath it than your view of higher up on the stage is restricted. Not a big deal for most plays but there is a decent amount of Phantom that takes place high on the stage we could not see. Still overall a great experience.
