Seattle Rep Biography

One of the largest and most renowned regional theatres in the country, Seattle Repertory Theatre produces a mix of classics, recent Broadway hits and cutting-edge new works in two theatre spaces.

Since our founding in 1963, actors like Lawrence Fishburne, Lily Tomlin, Samuel L. Jackson, Meryl Streep, Richard Gere, Richard Chamberlain, Jessica Tandy, Christopher Walken and many more have all "walked the boards" at the Rep.

Perhaps even more importantly, the Rep has been an artistic home for countless Seattle artists. Actors like Suzanne Bouchard, David Pichette, John Aylward, R. Hamilton Wright, and many more have built their careers on our stages.

We've premiered plays by August Wilson, Neil Simon, John Patrick Shanley, Wendy Wasserstein, Sarah Ruhl and many others, and some of the world's top directors, designers and artisans have brought our shows to life. Through our Yes Project we continue to foster the next generation of artists.

And we were proud to receive the 1990 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre (that's one you can only win once).
