About Princess of Wales 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. The Princess of Wales is a showcase of all that is best in both traditional and contemporary design. The Toronto Star described it as, "...a glittering glass jewelry case, a sparkling glimpse into a spectacle of total design." In the years since its public opening, the theatre has hosted hundreds of visitors - architects, designers, engineers and theatre professionals from all over the world - who have come not to see a show, but to study the architecture, design and art work of this landmark theatre.
