My favorite musical of all has been Kinky Boots. A night at the Fifth Avenue is a special night of magic and sound. Seatle appreciates all you do to make our entertainment rich!

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
