Limited food, mostly sweets. Bar has good variety of booze and few wines. Can take drinks into theatre. I like parking at city center bldg and going to Palomino before or after. They validate parking. There's also Loulays 1 block from theatre but have not tried. Dress any way you want, it's Seattle!

We ate at the Palomino on 5th Street before the performance since it seemed to be the closest restaurant. The food and service were both excellent. We'd happily eat there again.

I prefer "Late Night Catechism" because it was smaller and more exciting, but the show is still a lot of fun and manages a large degree of the same feel of the original.

Sister was great. Really enjoyed the show. Thought the second half was a little slow, but would still highly recommend it.

Funny, funny, funny!! You don't have to be Catholic to enjoy this show. Go, you'll have a wonderful, laugh-filled evening. The back of my head hurt I was smiling and laughing so much!!

More Information



In this latest addition to the Late Nite Catechism series, Sister employs techniques from her favorite TV show, Forensic Files to discover the whereabouts of the Magi’s Gold. As she points out in her hilarious opening, “We know what happened to the myrrh and the frankincense – Mary used them as a sort of potpourri. They were in a barn after all. But who was the culprit who made off with the gold coins and left Mary, Joseph, and the infant Jesus in that lousy stable without any chance to upgrade to a suite?” Forensic tools in hand, Sister creates a living nativity using audience members dressed as the Holy Family, magi, shepherds, sheep, cattle…and of course, an ass. She then sets the stage for the crime by directing a local choir in songs of the season that are sure to add even more clues to her investigation.

Sister’s Christmas Catechism, with hysterical audience interaction, musical highlights, wacky prizes, nonstop laughs, and the irrepressible, irresistible Sister, is bound to make the holidays jolly and bright.
