On Saturday May 26, 2018 - the Princess of Wales Theatre turned a quarter century old. The building opened on the same day in 1993 with the Canadian premiere of MISS SAIGON. It was a big deal back then and we'd like to think it's still a big deal today. Designed by architect Peter Smith, with an interior design by the then up-and-coming design firm Yabu Pushelberg, now world renowned, and featuring artwork by the brilliant Frank Stella, the POW (as it's known by the staff) was the first privately built, stand-alone theatre in North America in over 50 years.
