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.

This Seattle Theatre is a local icon! Just seeing this early 20th Century Movie Palace is a blast. From the hanging Dragon Chandelier in the auditorium (which dominates the ceiling) to the over the top Chinoiserie in the impressive two story lobby, just seeing the...More

I have season tickets to the Fifth Avenue and have had for four years now. Step back into the old world of theatres. My favorite in all of Seattle.

Old funky 20's-30's movie theater with an Asian theme. Huge hanging Asian art above the balcony. Smaller than the Paramount. Great acoustics. Great place for a show or music. Highly recommended.

Caught a matinee of Romy & Michele's High School Reunion: The Musical and had an absolute blast. The inside of the theater is gorgeous and the staff was very nice and accommodating.

We saw Romy and Michele last week and it was really good! We enjoyed every minute, what a fun show. Lots of good music and the characters were very unique and fun.

My husband and I love this venue. It is absolutely beautiful and well maintained. The theater's show selections (with very few exceptions) have been delightful (and we've seen quite a few). We also enjoy the location (with plenty of parking options and multiple restaurants within...More

The 5th is one of the most prolific and important producing companies for musicals in the U.S. Their local productions are as good as the national touring Broadway shows. They've originated major Broadway shows, including "Hairspray," and "Memphis" with more on the way.

Lower level seating is the best, the upper level seats are a bit steep and the stairs are modern and well lit. My wife has walking issues(she needs a cane). I have been seated all over the venue and the view is always good... More
