This was truly a treat to the senses, beautiful theater and great performers. It is kind of a small and intimate theater so all seats are good seats. Kids loved it! 10 and 11yrs

This NYC theater snob has found an adequate fix at ACT, which features very eclectic fare (Pinter festival, Ramayana, script readings, From Uncle Ho to Uncle Sam, and others) at incredible prices if one takes advantage of the ACT pass. For a mere $25 a month, you can see almost all ACT has to offer, and if you like it, you can go see it again--and you can even get $4 parking at the convention center in the evening (but don't leave your car after midnight, or it will get locked in!). ACT helps keep the theater blues away, and it's exciting to see world premieres of shows I'm pretty confident will make their way to off-Broadway if not Broadway proper.

Wonderful theater. Always something interesting going on there. It's a great space and is used to full effect. The 14/28 festival runs a few times a year and is very good, catch it if you can.

We used ACT for our holiday party. For the most part people thought it was great, but from a planning aspect, they tacked on extra fees that were not in our event agreement. They also exclusively use Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes (great catering, but their staff showed up late and they charged for their staff being there longer than they actually were). Just FYI...

Just saw "Hold the Truths", a riveting experience. I lived thru Gen DeWitts, Commander of the Sixth Army District. getting FDR to back his desire to eliminate all Japanese, Eisei and Nisei from the West Coast. The ruling more than decimated Foster High School Student Body where I was a student. Duwamish and Green River had many Japanese Truck Gardeners along with Italian immigrant farmers. But only the "Japs" were taken. I later was a Combat Veteran of the Med Theater where Nisei troops were most highly decorated. The illegal and indignant actions against American Citizens will be long remembered and hopefully not forgotten.

My girlfriend introduced me to the theater. Love the location. Easy to park and plenty of food to eat around. It can be a hit or miss but, such is life. I'll continue to go as often as I can.

Thank You Suzanne.

Absolutely amazing and bold productions.

The theater itself is in the round and a great place for intimate plays. However the actual plays and performances are all over the place. Ranging from amazing to incredibly subpar / a waste of time :)

Recommend reviews of the play first. But also recommend supporting the local theatre.

We went to see Daisy yesterday afternoon. It was superb. I would especially like to note Michael Gotch who played Tony Schwartz. Schwartz is a very complicated character, hard to do. On the one hand, he is confident to the point of arrogance. He KNOWS. On the other hand, he is so vulnerable. He has agoraphobia (fear of crowds), acrophobia (fear of heights), he is also afraid of leaving an area a few blocks on a side, and for some reason I didn't quite catch he took his shoes and socks off. But he knows the answers, he knows how to think about manipulating people's minds. That's power. So on the one hand, he's powerful and on the other hand, he is vulnerable. That's hard to play. Gotch does it, and does it well.

As a long time ACT Pass Member I just love this place! Such a great deal for so much quality entertainment! I am currently about to watch and hear the fabulous Love Markets!!

A beautiful venue and not a bad seat anywhere. You almost feel a part of the play! I can hardly wait to see a Christmas Carol again.

Honestly my fav. To the way they make it accessible for anyone to experience the theatre and enjoy it and the amazing choices and shows they put on

Laura M

We just saw A Christmas Carol. The production was in the round. And the actor's were spot on. You could see and hear every line. Very well done. We will definitely come to see other plays.

Blake A

We took the whole family, kids and all, to A Christmas Carol. Extremely family friendly, even the scary parts were done to be intense yet manageable for the little guys. Acting, sets, theatre, tech... was all done with utmost skill, class, and professionalism.

Great theater venue. I love the vibe of this theater. The shows are usually good but can be quite unique. There are great seats in this venue either of theaters although I like one in the round one best.

Very nice place. I visited this place for attending a tech event. But the parking is pretty expensive.

I wanted to catch a show while in Seattle so chose to go to the ACT and saw "A Murder for Two". It was a great 90 minute 2 person play in which they played 13 different characters. It felt a little amateur theatre but that charm is what made it very funny and great to watch. The theatre itself was beautiful and the room I was in, there wasn't a bad seat in the house. I did find it a little pricey for what it was and felt the ushers could have been more helpful guiding people in and out of the building as it was quite a maze for someone who hasn't been there....but otherwise a really enjoyable and theatrical evening. Centrally located so easy to get to and from and enjoyed dinner in the city afterwards.

We love the ACT theater. It's small and we'll thought out. Not a bad seat in the house. The yearly run of "A Christmas Carol" is a holiday tradition.

Great location. Cozy theater in the round. No bad seats in the whole place! You can even preorder drinks for the intermission. Also, most of the venue is handicap accessible. Elevators and ramps!

Jason R

12/21/2017

"A Christmas Carol" is equisitely done. I highly recommend. Is become an annual Christmas tradition for my family to see this show, and every year it is excellent, despite having seen it many times before. Do yourself a favor, make ACT's "A Christmas Carol" part of your Christmas tradition!

Verla V

I have an ActPass and try to catch almost every show there. Always great quality, and a wide variety of types of classic and modern theater.

ACT is a great theater that delivers big shows on a small stage. Theater is the round is particularly cool.

It's a smaller but nice theater. Good acoustics and not a bad seat in the house.

My first time at this theater was to see Ride the Cyclone. I was very impressed with this venue, it isn't very large, but the set up was great. It looked like you would have a great view of the small stage from any seat. The seats were pretty comfortable as well. The entrance was right across the street from Union Square garage which is also nice. I could also tell that a lot of work went into the stage design for this show and I look forward to seeing another performance here.

Charlotte S

Once again an amazing performance put on at the ACT Theatre downtown Seattle we saw ride the cyclone amazing unusual Musical if you get the chance truly a great show to see I love the ACT Theatre it's a theater on the round, with beautiful old architecture the Acoustics and sound are amazing, seating is nice, I prefer front row upper balcony because I enjoy the bird's eye view whether you're in the lower seating mainstage floor or upper balcony the views are wonderful definitely a Class Act theater! 😉😄

Recently saw Ride The Cyclone and the Wolves at the ACT and they we both great plays. For contemporary art this is my favorite theater in Seattle.

Beautifully restored architectural treasure. Two main stages plus a cabaret theater featuring innovative works. A must see!

Jackie G

5/28/2018

The shows so far that I've seen here are a bit too liberal for my taste. I most recently saw a soccer play that I was so incredibly excited about, named The Wolves, only to be disappointed on how it was almost too extreme and unrealistic, and honestly a bad reputation to the name of girls soccer. This is talking to someone who has played soccer for over 20 years and was likewise on several very competitive, select teams when I was younger. Yes, when I played we had very different personalities on the team that could be quite divided, but that poor of language, angriness, and poor music taste talking about tomboys being hoes, is not what girls soccer is like or about. I was heavily disappointed. But in expressing it, the staff was kind to me and heard my concerns. I've seen two others that have been similar, so I myself may not prefer to see much there, but I appreciate smaller threatres with good patrons and staff that care to engage with others on input.

Awesome theater. We have been subscribers for many many years. Totally love every production. Many time the productions are not just enjoyable but thought provoking also.

Great location on the first floor of the convention center. Multiple performance spaces. Cheap parking in the CC parking garage... $7 all night after 5pm.

Shawndelle J

6/29/2018

Saw 'blanket of fear'...very moving and disturbing and lightly humorous. I liked it so much, I'm considering a membership. The 'bartender' made me a negroni upon request and started pouring with no measuring, assuring me he had a feel for it. I was skeptical, but it was on point. Cheers!

Bunny A

Great professional theater but columns in the cabaret block a lot of the action. Need more attention to mis en scene in front of columns

RON T

Went to see the play, Queen. A fictional, one act play about academic scientific research on bees where questions of scientific evidence and loyalty to colleagues clash in a thought-filled and heart-felt story. Excellently acted by all of the cast with some wonderful humor between a young Indian couple who have been "matched" by their parents. Highly recommend it. Playing through the 19th of August.

Mary W

Marvelous playhouse. All the seats have great views. It's totally accessable. They sell drinks and maybe snacks, but I don't go to the theater to eat or drink, so can't comment on the selection. The plays are well produced and very good.

Gerald L

We always enjoy the plays at ACT (A Contemporary Theater). The plays are contemporary and often concern topical issues for our nation and the world in general.

Three intimate theaters in one building doing a variety of plays, so many choices through the year. All are interesting and off-beat with very talented performers.

Very good seating, closed caption and hearing aides available, friendly courteous staff. Good selection and quality of plays.

Robert M

A couple nice theaters, a wide variety of plays. From old standards to premiers, from established actors to debut theater grads, there is great diversity but always a polished production and a nice evening. Great discounts available if you buy a play package.

Small & intimate theatre near Seattle conference centre. Surprisingly good plays acted with pretty small cast & budgets. Varied show options over the season. Refreshments available.

Went to "Beware the Terror of Gaylord Manor" with friends in the cabaret theater. It's a beautiful space and the show was campy and delightful. We were also able to have a drink while watching the show.

I saw A Christmas Carol and it was such the perfect setting for it. Up close and personal and intimate. The space is great to watch the show from anywhere in the theater. Highly recommend you take in a show of you ha e the chance. You won't regret it. The performance and performers are top notch

Rob B

Very nice venue to watch live plays or shows! Seats are placed well above the row in front and angled toward the center of the stage. Great way to watch without straining or looking around someone and nothing to get in the way! Loved it!

Outstanding theater we have been subscribers since the 80's. I recommend the Act Pass you can enjoy main stage, Act Lab and a variety performances by local smaller theater groups.

Great venue , theater in the round. Saw A Christmas Carol. Very good show, went very fast. Easy parking near by

In the age of virtual reality I'm glad the act theater is here. Classy, classic and clever, we saw a great intimate version of a Christmas Carol in a way that kept Dickens dream alive and anew in the hearts and minds of children and adults alike. I hope to be able to see many more shows in the future.

Serge L

This theater space is giant, with several different theaters inside. Really nice vibes across several levels. Excited to see shows there.

Is there a perfectly sized theatre? It may be this one. Small enough to be intimately close to the performance, large enough to be a full audience experience. Checking there upcoming performance schedule!

Jerome S

Nice place and the show was great. You must visit once and definitely you are not going to regret it. Performance was too good and I will be back again.

This is my favorite theater venue hands down. No bad seats, innovative, and great talent. Can't wait for Dracula this fall!!

Lyz K

Romeo and Juliet was wonderful. Exciting. Mix of hearing and deaf actors worked extremely well!
