llent performances, from original productions to longtime-favorite musicals, in an architecturally beautiful space. Last live performance I saw there was in February or March 2020, before COVID (drop down menu doesn't offer that timeframe as a choice, so mentioning it here), and the production was creative, well-acted, well-sung, well-choreographed, and thought-provoking.

Ms. Doubtfire was over the top amazing, and I hear may be moving on the Broadway Sondheim theatre...woohoo.
There were so many amazing singers and the lead male was so talented - couldn't decide who stole the show! Don't miss Sister Act starting there soon.

I've seen a few shows at the 5th Avenue Theatre and it's one of my favourite theatres. Most recently, I saw Mrs. Doubtfire at the end of it's run in December 2019. By that time, it was announced the show would transfer to Broadway in 2020. Mrs. Doubtfire was a hilarious show, ready for Broadway.

The design of the theatre is extraordinary with ornate Chinese style. Make sure to look up at the ceiling inside the theatre with stunning intricate design and a dragon. The sight-lines and sound are very good when watching shows. The orchestra is very deep so I would recommend sitting not too far back.

Absolutely the most beautiful theatre I've been to and love going back!

This is our second performance at 5th Ave theater. This time, we took our 2 teenage sons to Mrs. Doubtfire. The Asian themed interior is so nice. The only complaint from my wife is that the mens' washroom is ground level, while the ladies' is 2 flights of stairs. This makes it very difficult for women especially wearing heels.

Wonderful performance of Mrs. Doubtfire. Enjoyable and super energetic. However, I do prefer the performance of Annie last year.

We were just there to see Mrs. Doubtfire, which was a fantastic but new adaptation of the movie. We sat way up in the balcony, but that was fine, great view, perfect climate control, and great overall ambience.

I saw Austin's Pride and enjoyed it. It was pretty silly. We had good seats and the theater is beautiful. All of the staff we came into contact with were friendly and helpful. A great experience.

We had never been to the theater and were very pleased! The architecture of the building is beautiful and stunning. The sound is gorgeous. Our seats were in the back, but the sound was still phenomenal. We went to see Mrs Doubtfire which was outstanding! That is a must see while it is in Seattle. I will say the seats are a little uncomfortable and I noticed a lady behind us with a seat cushion so it is a known issue of those that regularly attend.

The theatre was built in 1926 using decrative arts from several buildings in the. forbidden city. The interior is just stunning and one of this city's real treasures.

Went to see Austen's Pride with a friend. I'm a huge fan of Austen's work especially Pride and Prejudice. I've seen the movies and read the book several times. I was skeptical on how the musical would turn out and was pleasantly surprised. Loved the scenery; the singing and music was phenomenal. This was my first time at the 5th Avenue Theater and it's quite the gem. Will come back to visit! And a little tip: Try parking in the garages after 5 pm to get their evening rate, or else you'll get charged for a full day.
