Wonderful venue to see live musical theatre. They have also produce first rate new musicals, many that have gone on to Broadway and won Tony Awards.

We saw Secondhand Lions during a recent visit to Seattle. The theatre itself is beautiful and full of intricate details that are an attraction unto themselves. Go a bit early to wander around the theatre and look at the carvings, tapestry, and details. The show was also a fantastic treat. It was an original production and the cast pulled off a wonderful tale closely akin to the movie theme.

Bought a couple of last minute tickets to catch this last spring. Great value for the price we paid, as I think the promoter was trying to sell off all the tickets.
We've never seen the Jersey Boys before, so it was really fun and entertaining. It was a great performance, and definitely worthwhile.

Parking, however, tends to be a little more challenging. While there are lots/garages close by.....it was a sloooooow crawl to exit the garage after the show. A better way would be to park somewhere else (preferably close to the light rail) and ride the train in. Then you would not be caught in the garage traffic jam. It took us about 35 min to exit the parking garage, which was about 2 blocks away.

I think the 5th gets top notch talent. We are amazed every time. If you haven't been to a show there, find one and go. Almost every show has a sale at some point to get a larger audience. Sign up to get notices of the sales. You can't beat the caliber of performers, direction, sets. The theater is beautiful too.
