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 www.5thavenue.org for more information and tickets.
