Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, A Chorus Line -- one of the longest-running shows ever on Broadway -- continues to win over audiences today, just like it did when it first took the world by storm in 1975. This emotional musical follows a number of performers as they audition for the chorus of a new musical -- each one sharing the joy, exhilaration, sweat and tears that make up the life of a would-be star. Its catchy tunes -- like "One Singular Sensation," "I Hope I Get It," "Dance: Ten; Looks: Three," and "What I Did for Love" -- have popped up everywhere from The Simpsons and Scrubs to Glee. These unforgettable songs by master composer Marvin Hamlisch, combined with stunning dancing and powerful storylines, make for an unforgettable theatrical experience. This production will feature Chryssie Whitehead (Warehouse 13, Private Practice, Revenge of the Bridesmaids), who originally made her Broadway debut in 2006's revival of A Chorus Line. Learn More

Book adapted from Voltaire’s novel by Hugh Wheeler, in a new version by John Caird
Having been taught by his beloved tutor, Dr. Pangloss, that “everything is for the best in this best of all possible worlds” our handsome, yet hapless, hero Candide sets off on an epic journey to find his one true love — the beautiful Cunegonde. Along the way he encounters wars, plagues, shipwrecks, earthquakes, pirates, swindlers, the Old World, the New World, the fabled lost city of Eldorado, and the Spanish Inquisition! Inspired by Voltaire’s classic satire this legendary musical features a sparkling score by the great Leonard Bernstein that includes the famous “Candide Overture”, the hilarious and bravura showstopper “Glitter And Be Gay”, and the moving and inspiring anthem “Make Our Garden Grow”. This Seattle premiere offers you the rare opportunity to experience one of “the best musicals you’ve never seen!”
