Apollo Theater

Time Out says

This 450-seat rental venue has played host over the years to long-running commercial productions like Million Dollar Quartet, The Vagina Monologues and Menopause the Musical. It’s also a home for Emerald City Theatre’s kid-friendly shows and the musical improv troupe Baby Wants Candy. The Apollo Theater Studio, a bare-bones converted storefront just around the corner from the main entrance, is often rented out for sketch comedy shows and other low-maintenance stagings.

I have seen many wonderful productions at the Apollo Theater. I've also had the pleasure of hearing the founder speak and her passion and commitment is evident.


The seats are comfortable. There isn't a bad seat in the house. It's smaller, sound is great, and has good views all the way around. The Apollo is just a landmark in the neighborhood with a great park nearby and some pretty good restaurants in the area as well. Parking around there isn't terribly difficult, lots of side streets and paid parking behind the theater. 

The only thing is that the entrance is a bit confusing without a lot of signage in the lower lobby, it tripped me up, thinking I walked through the wrong door or something, but clearly it's just me because no one else seemed to have any issues.
