About

The Prince of Wales Theatre opened on 27 Oct. 1937. The theatre was named for the current Prince at the time, the future Edward VII.

In the 1930s, the theatre hosted risqué Follies-style revues. Whilst controversial, the shows proved to be a huge success and the profits made funded the demolition of the theatre and the construction of the new building.

In 1941 the theatre played host to the UK premiere of The Great Dictator, Charlie Chaplin’s film that had been banned across most of Europe.

The Beatles also performed at the theatre in 1963 at the Royal Variety Performance for the Queen Mother. Barbra Streisand made her West End debut here in Funny Girl in 1966. The Book of Mormon opened in London in 2013, and it's played at the West End theatre ever since.

Prince of Wales Theatre Seating Information

The auditorium has two levels - Stalls and Dress Circle.

The seating is very comfortable and offer good views of the stage due to a noticeable rake in the seating and offset seating, meaning no seat is placed directly behind another.

The Dress Circle offers excellent views of the stage due to the steep rake in the seating.
