A popular and critical hit on Broadway, this sharp-witted sequel to Ibsen's realist masterpiece begins with a knock at the door. Some 15 years prior, Nora walked out that same door, leaving behind her husband and children to pursue a life as a fiercely independent woman -- a sure shocker in the 19th century. Now it's revealed that she's been busy writing scandalous novels that encourage women to break free from the bonds of marriage and find their own destiny. When a powerful judge blackmails Nora, she comes home to ask for help from the very family she abandoned. Coming to the Leo K. Theatre, the Seattle Rep's production of A Doll's House, Part 2 is a blistering and very funny meditation on marriage and the high cost of personal fulfillment -- and you don't need to have seen the original Ibsen to thoroughly enjoy this play, dubbed "explosively funny" by the Hollywood Reporter and the recipient of eight 2017 Tony Award nominations.

One of Sondheim's most famous scores comes back to the TLT for the first time since 1997! Winner of four Tony Awards, Stephen Sondheim's glorious musical masterpiece returns to the TLT stage.

Delightful, charming and at times heartbreaking, with gorgeous, lush music, including "A Weekend in the Country," "Liaisons" and the seminal "Send in the Clowns," A Little Night Music is a coupling (and uncoupling) tour-de-force.
Marlow, the young man that Kate Hardcastle desires, is too shy to talk to well-born ladies.

While wrangling her meddling step-mother, blusterous father and rascally step-brother, can Kate convince Marlow to love her for who she really is? Filled with mistaken identities, romantic entanglements, mischief-makers and clowns, it's easy to see hints of Shakespeare in Oliver Goldsmith's raucous 18th century hit. Enjoy all the pranks and hijinks of She Stoops to Conquer at Seattle's Center Theatre.
