The 5th Avenue Theatre presents Gilbert and Sullivan's beloved The Pirates of Penzance. This comic musical tells the story of Frederic, a boy mistakenly apprenticed to a soft-hearted band of pirates (his hard-of-hearing nurse was told to take him to a ship's pilot). When his apprenticeship is finally over, he leaves the pirate ship and promptly falls in love with a Major-General's daughter. Just as he starts planning for a law-abiding future, the pirates return to inform him that since his birthday falls on Leap Day, he still has another 63 years of pirate apprenticeship left. The score features many of Gilbert and Sullivan's wittiest and most engaging tunes, including the immortal "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General." Learn More

This play was amazing. I would have to say it was probably the most enjoyable and moving performance I have seen in Seattle. The voices were incredible and strong. Even though I was sitting in the "nosebleed" section, the sound system and the strength of the voices reverberated through the theatre and it didn't seem to matter the distance from the stage. I highly recommend it.

I thought this was very worth seeing. The scenery was amazing. The male vocals were excellent. The orchestra was wonderful.

Strong cast, good staging. But they seated probably 50 people long after the show had started, during some of the big emotional numbers. It was extremely disruptive -- people streaming through, flash lights, loud conversations. I would not recommend the 5th as this appears to be their policy. The head usher was extremely rude when I shared my concerns.

The production and performances were excellent. I was a bit disappointed in my seats. They were very high in the theater; I expected better for a $120 ticket. Live and learn...the 5th Avenue is just VERY expensive.

Last August, box-office records were shattered when over 50,000 people experienced Les Miserables. Now, Les Mis returns to The 5th Avenue Theatre.
Les Misérables originally opened in London at the Barbican Theatre on October 8, 1985, transferred to the Palace Theatre on December 4, 1985 and moved to its current home at the Queen’s Theatre on April 3, 2004 where it continues to play to packed houses. When Les Misérables celebrated its 21st London birthday on October 8, 2006, it became the world’s longest-running musical, surpassing the record previously held by Cats in London’s West End.
In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the legendary musical Les Misérables made theatrical history with an international first – three different productions in London at the same time. The Original Production (still playing to packed houses at the Queen’s Theatre), the acclaimed New 25th Anniversary Production at the Barbican (where the show originally premiered) and a celebratory concert at The O2 Arena. The O2 Concert was presented in more than 500 cinemas throughout the United States on November 17, 2010 and is now available on Blu-ray DVD.
The Broadway production of Les Misérables originally opened at the Broadway Theatre on March 12, 1987 and transferred to the Imperial Theatre on October 17, 1990 running for 6,680 performances. The U.S. National Tour began in November 1987 and visited over 150 cities before closing in St. Louis, MO in 2006. Broadway audiences welcomed Les Miz back to New York on November 9, 2006 where the show played the Broadhurst Theatre until its final performance on January 6, 2008. To date, Les Misérables remains the 3rd longest-running Broadway production of all time.
Seen by nearly 60 million people worldwide in 42 countries and in 21 languages, Les Misérables is undisputedly one of the world’s most popular musicals ever written, with new productions continually opening around the globe, with seven more currently scheduled. There have been 36 cast recordings of Les Misérables, including the multi-platinum London cast recording, the Grammy® Award-winning Broadway cast and complete symphonic albums and the soon-to-be-released live recording of the New 25th Anniversary Production. The video of the 10th Anniversary Royal Albert Hall Gala Concert has sold millions of copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling musical videos ever in the U.K. There are more than 2,500 productions of the Les Misérables School’s Edition scheduled or being performed by over 125,000 school children in the U.K., U.S. and Australia, making it the most successful musical ever produced in schools. Cameron Mackintosh is currently developing the film of Les Misérables with Working Title and Universal.
