My favorite musical of all has been Kinky Boots. A night at the Fifth Avenue is a special night of magic and sound. Seatle appreciates all you do to make our entertainment rich!

This is a beautiful theatre that hosts world class shows. The original architectural details have been preserved and restored to enhance the visit even before the shows begin.

I took my niece to see Wicked here. (which was fantastic) Really nice staff. I felt a little cramped in the seats, but what old theater doesn't have that? It's a beautiful building and we had great seats.
