This landmark theatre building was opened in 1926 and has since become one of the leading musical theatre show houses in the world. It is owned by the University of Washington. The theatre has 2130 seats. Every season it has about six or seven programmes, including locally produced materials and musicals on tour. The lavish productions are universally loved, and there are few better ways for a family to spend an evening out in Seattle. Best of all, in addition to soft drinks and wine, they serve beer at your seats. The decoration inside is classic, almost reminiscent of Baroque theatres.

The 5th Avenue Theatre, Seattle Reviews - Write a Review

  • This place has great musicals. (Duh) but also not a bad seat in the house. Super nice restrooms... Great Oriental decor and a real old world feel. Local Seattle productions are top notch too.

  • I've seen a few shows here - most notably the Phantom - SO amazing and the interior of the theatre is historically preserved and beautiful. A fun girls night out or date night!

  • I've seen several shows at the 5th, and it never fails to disappoint. Definitely recommend getting downtown early if you are driving, because parking can be a struggle right before the show. I will be back!

  • Beautiful historic theater! Parking is a challenge so use public transportation if you can.

  • A beautiful restored theater with Chinese motifs. Has excellent musicals.
