It is well designed so there are no bad seats. Great location. The seats are roomy so it is easy to get in and out if you are sitting in the inner rows. I love the waiting area, they offer a viewing screen so you don't miss the show.

I was unsure what to expect for my first visit. I was delighted yesterday when I attended my first concert there(hopefully not my last). The building is so beautiful inside and outside. It was clean and the bathrooms were plentiful and clean. I was greeted at the door by a polite person and all the staff was pleasant and helpful.... More

I have been attending shows (i.e. musicals, symphony orchestra(s), theatre productions, etc.) here since I was 5 years old. I am almost 21 years old and I still love coming here every year to see a show. This theater never gets old. There is always something new. I love how the theatre still holds it's restored beauty of an old... More

My family and I have been to the Nutcracker twice at the Pantages. Not a bad seat in the house. The theater is fantastic!

This is a restored and modernized early 20th Century vaudeville house and one time movie palace and the premier local venue for live performances. Every seat is excellent, and you don't need binoculars or opera glasses. Symphonies, ballet and international solo artists are better appreciated in this more intimate concert hall than in the mega venues in the city to... More

Something good is always happening at the Pantages. You can tour this restored beauty and learn it's interesting history or you can attend an event and enjoy the opulent surroundings. Performances are varied and diverse so you can no doubt find something to suit your taste.

My wife and I consistently buy a seasons worth of shows each year when the opportunity presents. The 2013-2014 shows were the best offered in years and I must applaud management for their efforts. This is not always the case, however, and it's why I'm only giving 4 Stars instead of the Five. The venue is a restored landmark in... More

Our first visit to this lovely theater was exceptional. The house staff is supremely cordial and filled with anecdotal information about the history of this lovely venue. We enjoyed a Friday evening show with a local string quartet followed by an exceptional couple of hours with Judy Collins. Could it get any better? The theater does have an elevator but... More

We spent New Year's Eve in Tacoma for the first night celebration. We decided to see music here, and were pleasantly surprised. There is quite a lot of seating, and it is very comfy. The inside of the theater is beautifully designed, and has a charming old time feel. It is worth a visit for anyone who likes visiting historic... More
