The origins of the Prince of Wales Theatre date back to the 1880s, but the original building was replaced in 1937. The new theatre was designed in an Art Deco style by Robert Cromie and the foundation stone was laid by popular British singer Gracie Fields.
In 2004, present owner Cameron Mackintosh oversaw extensive changes at the theatre. The successful musical 'Mamma Mia!' had its home at the Prince of Wales, and became the longest running musical in the theatre's history. The Prince of Wales, situated in Coventry Street, London, is hosting two big shows in November. These are the musical 'Let It Be', which will appeal to Beatles fans, and the popular Broadway comedy musical, 'Book of Mormon'.
The Prince of Wales Theatre is located at Coventry Street, London, W1D 6AS.
