The Prince of Wales Theatre auditorium is decked out in a 1930’s Art Deco style, stemming from the theatre’s re-opening in 1937. The interior tends to follow colour themes of cream, ivory and gold which highlight the traditional red velvet seating within the auditorium.
The Prince of Wales has just over 1,600 seats split across two levels, the Stalls and the Dress Circle. The Dress Circle begins to overhang at around row P, although this is not a major obstruction by any means. As the stage is wide and the seating is only on two levels it is hard to find either a seat with a bad view or a seat that feels far away from the stage.
