We recently visited The Pantages theatre for an acoustic concert. Our seats were obtained late and were about as far back as you could get. But this was one of many surprises that met us and left us smiling. From the moment you walk in the doors, you are aware of a comfortable, friendly, but historic setting. From the carpets... More

The Pantages is one of those great historic theaters. No matter what you are seeing, there is literally no bad seat in the house. There are drinking fountains, but they are hard to find.

The concert I attended consisting of a single singer and piano accompaniment had excellent sound. The seats are comfortable and the aisles unusually wide allowing one to stretch out legs. I enjoyed the theater design and old style ambiance. The front row was right against the stage and did not look comfortable. There was almost no place for patrons to... More

This was our first theater show in Tacoma and we were very impressed. The building may be relatively small but the stage views and sound, even from near the back where we were seated were excellent. The interior is pretty without being overdone. Street parking was easy to find.

This theater is an old gem in downtown Tacoma. It has the classic charm of older theaters but is host to incredible talent. Parking is difficult during the week, but on weekends and evenings it isn't difficult to find a decent inexpensive spot close by. It's on the perfect street to find something to eat for dinner or lunch as... More

This is a really great venue for amplified concerts, or dance performances. It is a gorgeous, historic building and it feels like you are entering another era. The problem is the acoustic. Orchestral, operatic, or other acoustic performances are muddy, and less than ideal. They are planning a huge renovation that will improve the acoustic, so I am really looking... More

Ticket office allowed the theater staff to buy remaining tickets to Pink Martini prior to the box office opening on the Monday prior to the Friday show. I had been told to call back at the box office opening time Monday morning to see if unsold ADA tickets were to be released. I called at the 11:00 opening and was... More
