    There's a hidden bar in the main section facing the middle doors. It's hard to see but usually less of a line than the main one in the lobby

    Good theater. For good shows, the concessions have long queues, come early.

    Beautiful theater in downtown Seattle. Great seats most anywhere in Orchestra section. Pre-order your intermission drink to save time since the restroom lines are huge!

    If your "seat" has a little too much meat, be ready for a squeeze. Also, if you're taller than 5', be ready to become the person in front of you's personal set of knee-earmuffs.

    If there's a huge line across the street to get in, don't just walk up to the door. Get in line with everyone else! Wrapping around two blocks only took 15 minutes anyway.

    If you have to go during intermission, just piss yourself. Spending the 2nd act soaking in your own urine is guaranteed to be a less miserable experience than navigating the line for the restrooms.
