We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Seattle is a major threat to The Stranger's ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different.
90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we're asking for your help to support continued coverage of everything happening in Seattle. You can make one-time or recurring donations. We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.
This business has special options available during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Built in 1926, downtown Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre presents touring productions of Broadway hits and has also established itself as a testing ground for new musicals that might or might be bound for NYC, depending on how they do, including Hairspray, Jekyll & Hyde, Shrek the Musical, Memphis, and Lone Star Love.
