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.

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.

They are making great improvements to the interior of the theatre. Great play choices each year. Improved women's bathrooms both upstairs and down.

Always fun going to the 5th Ave. There is not a bad seat in the house. All of the actors are great. My husband and I have been going for years and we always meet nice people.

The Fifth Avenue is one of my favorite theaters in Seattle. It's small, but there isn't a bad seat in the house. They have the best shows. I highly recommend seeing a show at the fifth!
