We are subscribers for years and have always enjoyed the plays - with some bumps along the way. But I was very impressed with Ride the Cyclone. A musical with energy and fabulous actors - DO NOT MISS

The ACT theater is great. It’s not grand scale. There aren’t more than a dozen rows or so, along with a few rows of a balcony. But enough of that. This is about Ride the Cyclone! We have season ticks to the 5th, a theater in Tacoma (Yeah, TLT!) and we catch a few other shows between Olympia and Seattle. Outside of Hamilton, this was our best of the year. We really enjoyed the music, the variety of singers featured, and the story. If you’re a fan of musical theater, catch it while you can.

ACT is a small but sweet theatre with much character. I saw a show there "Ride the Cyclone." It is an entertaining musical and the technical elements of the show is simply unbelievable. Worth checking out if you can find a ticket online. It is definitely a good spot to hit when you're in town. The theatre is right behind the Sheraton Hotel in the downtown. Easy to find, and easy to get to. It is about 15 minutes of walk from the Pike Place Market, 7 minutes from Nordstrom and Macy's.

Interesting theatre will lots of varied shows & performance... Great size, with couple of different theatre spaces allowing multiple shows to be put on. Had seats both upstairs & down & haven't found a bad seat yet. Tickets reasonably priced & whether taking a chance on if you are in town for the weekend & something takes your fancy

I visit Seattle once or twice a year for several weeks. On my last trip, my sons and I saw a delightful play at the Act Theater. It is a smaller theater, and all seats would be good seats. The seats were comfortable. We loved the production. I recommend this theater and will definitely return on a future trip.
