Seattle theatres for live performing arts are vibrant and thriving. The Emerald City is recognized as one of the country's great theatre centers with nationally known groups producing world-premieres and new works. Dozens of venues host live shows from Broadway hits to one-act plays, children's theatre, comedy, dance, music and just about anything that suits your fancy.
I love the Seattle performing arts scene! We are one of the major locations for Broadway previews - a way to test run a show before opening on Broadway.
One of my favorites was Hairspray at the 5th Avenue Theatre just before it opened in New York. We knew it was going to be a hit because it brought the house down here in Seattle!
Whatever your taste in theatre or music, one of our Seattle theatres or performing arts groups is sure to please. It's one of the top things to do when it's raining in Seattle - lose yourself in the magic of a live show!
