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!

The 5th Ave Theatre is a great place to go. Having seen many shows at this charming theatre over the years, I can tell you that every time I go, there is a magic that seems to draw me in as soon as I enter. Parking can be found just a block away and the staff are very helpful. The... More

This is the total theater experience. The theater itself is amazing just to look at the furnishings. I have seen several plays here, and it doesn't get much better unless you go to a "Broadway show". Live music and ingenious stage sets make this an experience you will remember. Last play was "The Pajama Game" - greaat singing and connection... More

I've never been to the 5th Avenue Theater before but my company had a private event and show held here and I was blown away! We saw Pajama Game, which was outstanding! The actors/ singers/ dancers were phenomenal, but the theater itself was gorgeous! The sound was perfect! Have you ever been to a live performance and you just can't... More

Even if you pick a show that is not the greatest, the theater itself is fun to just revel in. The acoustics are terrific, and even if you are a little hard of hearing, they have ear phones that pick up the actors voices.

We have been to many a stage show here having season tickets. They were all very entertaining. I have also been to the Sound of Music Sing Along they have once a year. That is so much fun. A must see for all Sound of Music enthusiasts. The theater is so beautiful inside that it is well worth a look... More

I've been to the 5th more than your average person, but I always love visiting! A few show secrets: 1. Order food & drinks before you go in so they're ready at intermission and you don't have to wait in line! 2. Ladies, there are 3 bathrooms, the upstairs bathroom is always your best bet, as it's the biggest. 3.... More

I go to the 5th Ave multiple times throughout the year for plays and musicals. It is a great size so that even the back and upper deck seats have a good view. The sound is usually great and the staff is always very friendly and helpful.

The only reason I would not give 5 stars to this place is the fact that I sat in the first row of the balcony seating, which is the same price as a lot of the close lower section seating, it was Tier 1 pricing, and the view was slightly obstructed. I was never warned about it, but I had... More
