The Princess of Wales Theatre is a 2000-seat theatre located at 300 King Street West in the heart of Toronto’s Entertainment District in the downtown area. The theatre’s name has a triple meaning: it recalls the Princess Theatre, Toronto’s first “first-class legitimate” playhouse, that once stood three blocks to the east; it honours Diana, Princess of Wales, with whose consent the theatre was so-named; and it links the building to its sister theatre, the Royal Alexandra, one block to the east, also named – with Royal assent – for a former Princess of Wales.
The theatre was built by Ed and David Mirvish as a state-of-the-art facility for the staging of long-running, large-scale musicals. At the time of its construction, it was the first privately owned and financed theatre built in Canada since the Royal Alexandra was built in 1907, and the first such to be built in North America in over thirty years.
