Tacoma in Washington is the state’s third largest city, located southwest of Seattle, along the Puget Sound. It is also the second largest among the cities in the Puget Sound area. The Tacoma port is the state’s largest port and serves as an international trading center on the Pacific Coast.
Because of its location near the harbor on Commencement Bay, Tacoma was identified to be the the final stop of the Northern Pacific Railroad in the west and from there it gained the title of “City of Destiny” and its motto of "When rails meet sails." In 2004, Tacoma was named one of the 30 most livable cities in the country. The downtown area of Tacoma includes a Theatre District that encompasses numerous theatres, three of which are operated by the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts. One of these theatres is the 89-year-old renowned The Pantages Theatre. The Pantages, which first opened its doors to the public in 1918, was originally built by Alexander Pantages as one in a chain that were to hold Vaudeville shows in the beginning of the 1900s. It had changed names twice over the years, as The Orpheum and then The Roxy, and only reverted back to its original name in the 1980s. It has been host to numerous significant events in the city including plays, musicals, concerts by international artists and the annual “The Nutcracker” tour. Another theatre operated by the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts in the Theatre District is The Rialto designed in the Beaux Arts style by notable Tacoma architect Roland Borhek. It opened in the same year as the Pantages and for the same purpose, as a Vaudeville Theatre. It had become degraded for a period until it was restored in the 1990s and now it is one of the city’s most favorite event venues, hosting events of different varieties like plays, musicals, dances and even pet fashion shows. This year it will be the stage for celebrated operas La tragédie de Carmen and La Traviata.
The third, but definitely not least, favorite venue for events in Tacoma is the iconic Tacoma Dome. Its dome shaped roof can be seen from almost any point in the downtown area. It is the world’s largest among arenas with wooden domes and has a total seating capacity of 23,000. It is a venue for both entertainment and sports events and has hosted some of the biggest names in the music industry including Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and David Bowie as its first ever performer.
