The Prince of Wales Theatre is a West End theatre in Coventry Street, near Leicester Square in the City of Westminster. It was established in 1884 and rebuilt in 1937, and extensively refurbished in 2004 by Sir Cameron Mackintosh, its current owner. The theatre should not be confused with the former Scala Theatre in Charlotte Street, off Tottenham Court Road that was known as the Prince of Wales Royal Theatre or Prince of Wales's Theatre from 1865 until its demolition in 1903.
Currently there are no events for the Prince of Wales Theatre London .
Selected reviews for this venue:
Let It Be (15/11/12) - Rip off
Absolute joke and an insult to the Beatles. Paul is right handed and looks and sounds nothing like Paul McCartney, the show is not approved by any of the Beatles or their estates in fact quite the opposite songs have been removed when the rights have been revoked. If the music rights didn't belong to Simon Cowell this show would not be on the West End stage.
Let It Be (10/11/12) - Terrible avoid
Laughable, terrible cheap little fitting wigs, jokey shop moustaches and costumes for the Sgt Pepper era that look like a hastily made up fancy dress party outfit.
Paul plays right handed and John sounds like he comes from Manchester, Ringo has a thick Birmingham accent. The Beatles music is flawless the cast of Let It Be are note at times vocally fragile high notes, missed and poor diction from Paul. There are far better tribute acts doing the clubs - this is an insult to the West End musical tradition . No story no interaction between the actors playing the Fab Four, no hint they were ever friends much less famously fell out, stay at home with get a huge glass if red and put on the CDs and dance around your living room itll be far more fun Wasted chance with the best back catalogue in music history This show is a tragic comedy in its handling of those treasures
Let It Be (26/09/12) - Just a cover band
Dont expect too much, they just dress and sing (nicely, of course) through The Beatles history. A bit expensive to see a cover band.
