Moore Theater / Paramount Theater
Moore: 1932 2nd Ave | ph: (206) 682.1414
Paramount: 911 Pine St. | ph: (206) 682.1414

Opened in 1928 as a vaudeville and silent film venue, The Paramount was once one of the most popular stops on the vaudeville circuit. Although the theater has been renovated to accommodate today's elaborate stage productions, its

lavish interior has lost none of its elegance. The Paramount now hosts such diverse performances as Broadway plays, touring dance companies, jazz concerts, and Sesame Street Live. And, in staying true to its past, The Paramount hosts silent films (accompanied by the original Publix organ) on Monday evenings.

The Paramount's sister theater, The Moore, was built in 1907 and is the oldest remaining theater in Seattle. Smaller than the Paramount, The Moore hosts Off Broadway shows, contemporary works, and touring bands.

Seattle Fringe Theater Festival
Administrative Office: 1415 3rd Ave | ph: (206) 342.8172
As the oldest fringe festival in the United States, the Seattle Fringe Festival has been bringing theater to the public since 1991. Featuring everything from Cirque de Flambe's inspired pyrotechnic performances to serious dramas and mixed media pieces, the festival works to liberate theater from its often stuffy trappings and bring it the masses. In working to develop new audiences for theater, the festival's primary focus is developing a forum for a diversity of emerging writers, actors, and directors.
Benaroya Hall
200 University St | ph: (206) 215.4747 (Box Office) or (206) 215.4700 (Administrative Office)
The crown jewel of Seattle's performance halls, Benaroya Hall has been internationally lauded for its state-of-the-art acoustics and seating design. As the home of the Seattle Symphony, the Hall has a busy schedule of classical performances throughout the year. The Northwest Chamber Orchestra, Seattle Baroque, and Seattle Choral Company are also frequent performers. Weekday tours at 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. give visitors a chance to learn about the Hall's architecture and allow a peek at its art collection which includes two Chihuly chandeliers, and works by Robert Rauschenberg and Doris Chase.
Empty Space Theater
3509 Fremont Ave. N | Administrative Office: 206.547.7633 | Box Office: 206.547.7500
A forum for new and emerging playwrights, the Empty Space has been around long enough to see some of those new writers become well-known voices of contemporary theater (Sam Shephard and David Mamet, for example). A non-profit with a cozy 150 seats, the Empty Space bills itself as "uncommon theater," but what makes it most uncommon is its consistent dedication to bringing daring new plays to Seattle audiences.
ACT (A Contemporary Theater)
700 Union Street | ph: (206) 292-7676
ACT, housed just around the block from the Convention Center, has four unique and separate theaters. The Allen, a theater-in-the-round, seats nearly 400, while the Falls, seating about the same number, features a stage surrounded on three sides. Buster's hosts the long-time favorite, Late Night Catechism, and the Bullitt, a tiny downstairs venue, is used for small shows. With so many stages, the April to November season has many different modern plays to sample.
Seattle Repertory Theater
155 Mercer Street | ph: (206) 443-2210
One expects quality here, from the city's premier theater group: that's exactly what you'll find. Anything from Shakespeare to Harold Pinter is presented at the Bagley Wright Theater, and every cast is filled with top notch award-winning performers. The Leo K theatre hosts more alternative, modern plays, and both seasons run October to June.
