We ate across the street at Rock Pizza/. Just make sure you allow at least an hour for dinning. We parked at the Olympic Garage (1 block south of the 5th ave). Great place to park. A lot of people dressed up and a lot of people were very casual.Ballroom With a Twist info • Aug 18 2014 star this tip starred

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!”
