For over a century, the Seattle Symphony has built its audience and enraged Rumpelstilskins with an ever-growing collection of accolades and golden awards. Two Emmy-winning television specials stand out among a list of credentials that also includes 12 Grammy nominations and upward of 140 recordings. The orchestra continues to live up to its esteemed reputation thanks to new principal pops conductor Jeff Tyzik who has been hailed, "Among the best pops conductors in America,” by Rochester Democrat & Chronicle. He has also been recognized as an innovative conductor through his startling arrangements, original programming, and engaging rapport with audiences of all ages. The symphony is also well known for performing classical juggernauts such as The Rite of Spring as well as more whimsical nights of jazz standards.

Duke Ellington. The Ramones. Pearl Jam. If a musical act has made a deep, cool-looking dent in American culture, it's probably played at The Showbox. The Seattle music venue has been drawing great performers since it opened in 1939, when the proto-proto-proto-grunge movement was underway. Paying tribute to this rich history, the owners recently gave The Showbox's lounge space a new old name: Kerns Music Shop, which used to be a storefront owned by a local trombonist.

The Musicquarium Lounge at The Triple Door boasts a 1,900-gallon freshwater aquarium, as well as a menu inspired by Asian delicacies and brought to you by the acclaimed Wild Ginger kitchen. Start your evening with some Bangkok boar satay dipped in a golden-raisin plum sauce ($5 each, two for $9), and kick your noshing into high gear with fragrant duck spiced with cinnamon and star anise and served with steamed buns, Sichuan peppercorn salt, and sweet plum sauce ($14.50 half, $23.50 whole). Sip a beer-like beverage ($3.50–$12.50 bottled, $5.50 draft), sake ($8–$15), or cider ($5.25–$15.25) as live music swims into your ear canals most evenings from the lounge stage sans cover charge. Signature cocktails such as the river taxi ($8.50)—made with Mekhong whiskey, coconut water, lemongrass, and pineapple—float on sound waves aboard rafts made of smooth, smooth bass lines.

The Seattle Shakespeare Company delivers bard-penned dramatics to eager theatergoers, delighting patrons with fresh takes on Shakespeare's classic plays. Following several plot threads, including the supernaturally altered infatuations of two young couples and the antics of a clownish troupe of actors, A Midsummer Night's Dream deftly mixes fantasy and sidesplitting comedy into a mélange that tickles funny bones and ousts any were-hyenas sitting in the audience. Fairies, love spells, and mistaken identities keep plots rolling merrily along before all is resolved in jubilant fashion. Shows take place at the Intiman Playhouse, with seating that puts theatergoers close enough to see every costume lace ruffle and anachronistically flawless smile.
