The Prince of Wales is a fairly big, although not huge, theatre right in the heart of Piccadilly Circus, just a few minutes’ walk from Leicester Square, which has hosted musicals such as Rent, Let it Be, South Pacific, and most recently The Book of Mormon. It has a slightly more low-key feel than some of the bigger theatres and benefits from its proximity to lots of pre-theatre dining options.
