Editor's Explorations - 5th Avenue Theater

  • Written by Kristen Hamilton, Editor

Wow – what a show!  Recently we experienced “a night on the town.”  Downtown Seattle that is with dinner at Palomino followed by ‘Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion’ at the 5th Avenue Theater.  We had a terrific evening. 

We made reservations for dinner, which was a good idea as the place was packed.  Apparently the Palomino is a hot spot prior to shows.  Our meals were delicious and the waitstaff made sure we got out in plenty of time.

We arrived at the theater at 7:30 p.m. to pick up tickets at ‘will call’ and the cue was very long but moved quickly.  If you can get your tickets ahead of time, I would recommend that to avoid the line. 

The theater is absolutely beautiful!  In reviewing the program, it was built in 1926 and restored to its full glory with a grand re-opening in 1980.  What a wonderful historical landmark for the city.

We    went  to    ‘opening  night’  so the show started a bit late as everyone got settled and intermission was quite long as they prepared the stage for part two.  Regardless of a little chaos, the show was a ball – the actors were talented, the script was funny, it flowed great and the singing was spot on.  I’d say they have a hit on their hands!

Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion is playing at 5th Avenue Theater through July 2nd.   Check out for more information and tickets.
