The Prince of Wales Theatre has been gutted and rebuilt by its owner Cameron Mackintosh with the architects, Arts Team at RHWL, at a cost in excess of £7 million, Architect Robert Cromie's original concept for a sleek, sophisticated, deco theatre, like an ocean liner, has now been fully realised and that glamour has been created in full.

This means an extended audience can now enjoy these delightful surroundings, have a few drinks at realistic prices and be entertained in style. A rare opportunity to see Joanna and Martin up close and personal.
