“Wonderful show and venue”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Saw Cole Porter's "Anything Goes" at the 5th Avenue Theater. What a wonderful and fun evening. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The theater is another beautiful historic venue in Seattle that has been fabulously restored.
Both the quality of the show and theater were great.

“Beautiful theater with Broadway quality shows”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Over the last couple of years, I've been able to see Elf, Cinderella & Music Man & have enjoyed ALL of them! The theater is quite old, but beautifully restored. It's right downtown Seattle, with plenty of parking lots, hotels & great restaurants nearby.

“Beautiful Theatre and Great Talent”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

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.

“Great entertainment - Jersey Boys”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

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.
