Princess Of Wales Theatre, Toronto Reviews
We went to watch the Illusionists at this venue last December 2017. It was a nice, small but cozy theatre. We had a good view of the stage from where we sat except that the people in front of us were too tall that I sometimes had to strain my neck to see the whole stage. It was nice that popcorn and other snacks were sold at the lounge but it would have been nicer to have it available closer to the theatre doors. The lounge is located downstairs and with my problematic knees I had a little bit of trouble going up and down the stairs. Elevator is available but because of the number of people it will take a while before you can get a chance to get in. The show was good in my opinion. My husband also enjoyed it. Oh and did I mention that the sink and faucets in the washroom were pretty cool? Too bad I didn’t bring my phone went I went in. Hehe. 😊
Saw the magicians and as a group they were ok... a few outstanding ones but nothing that gave me the wow factor. The theatre itself was more impressive
Don't get balcony seats unless you aren't really interested in the show and don't mind being uncomfortable. The seats we were in were quite small, uncomfortable and close together. By the time the show was half over my back was killing me. There are not enough aisles down the rows of seats, so you have to stand up to let people past ridiculously often. There is underground parking below the theatre, cost us $20 to park for a 2 hour show. The parking garage is not very tall, so if you want to park there, leave your pickup truck at home and take the wife's car. The show we saw was pretty good (the illusionists).
What a beautiful theater, very intimate. The sound is very clear and you get a good view of the stage from any seating area. The seats are big and very comfortable. Ushering staff may need to be retrained because the wouldn't let me take a picture of the stage even before the event started. How can I capture the moment/memory if cant take a picture prior to the event starting?!?!?!?
Love this theatre!! Can't understand why they would want to destroy it for yet another condo. One of the best theatres we have in Toronto.
