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.

Venue is excellent for theater performances. Not all performances are equal in quality but the venue is perfect for all.

I took my wife for her birthday to see the play, The Secret Garden. It was amazing. The scenery, the voices, the acting were all the best. The theatre is one of the greatest places to watch a play. Broadway has nothing over this theatre.

Fun, small place for the concert, sound was good and close enough to actually see the musician. Historical place in Seattle. Took my niece to the concert and was enjoyed by both of us.

I've been to several shows at the 5th Ave Theatre and rarely have I been disappointed. Sitting closer or in the first balcony is helpful if you can manage it.

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
