A West End theatre, the Prince of Wales Theatre like most of the theatres in London boasts a history that spans back to many centuries.

The theatre was established in 1884 by actor-manager Edgar Bruce and was designed by notable architect Charles J. Phipps. Since then theatregoers have been flocking the auditorium of this historic theatre to enjoy its mesmerizing plays and musicals. There have been two theatres in the current site of the Prince of Wales Theatre London; the first one was erected in 1884 and lasted in 1937 and the other one that came as a replacement for the first and stands till today. The theatre since the beginning has witnessed performances by eminent theatre artists, a reason that has kept its auditorium jam-packed forever.

Currently playing at this historic venue is the multi-Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical from the writers of South Park, The Book Of Mormon.
