No time to plan the perfect Valentine’s Day? We’ve got you covered. Nix the flowers and chocolate (they were so 2017) and think outside the box by treating your partner, your friend, or yourself to a cultural experience. Grab dinner beforehand or post-show drinks for the perfect evening.

No matter what your relationship status this February, we’ve got a show for you in our Valentine’s week guide.

1. Afterwords 

This new musical will open your heart to the possibilities of love. When an accomplished young war reporter’s mentor is killed on assignment, his diaries are left to her care. Their pages open up questions about his midlife love affair, his sisters, and more, and three women recall the stories of this fallen hero.

Get tix from $15 to “Afterwords”!

2. Mamma Mia!

Get down to the songs of ABBA in this classic musical about the power of family and love. Set on a Greek island, the story follows young Sophie and her quest to discover who her father is, while her mother and her friends relive their glory days. Hit songs like “Dancing Queen,” “Super Trouper,” and “Lay All Your Love on Me” populate this great score. So come on down to the 5th Avenue Theatre to enjoy an evening of laughter, music, and fun.

Get tix from $40 to “Mamma Mia!”

3. The Gin Game

When two strangers meet for a game of Gin rummy, the game seems completely harmless at first. But when one player starts on a winning streak, tensions build, and the conversations start to get personal. D.L. Coburn’s Pulitzer-winning play is a quick-witted delight for you and your Valentine.

Get tix from $29 to “The Gin Game”!

4. Ibsen in Chicago

In 1882, an unlikely ensemble of scrappy Scandinavian immigrants converge to put on a play in Boomtown Chicago. As this ragtag group of new Americans rehearse a controversial new play written by their fellow countryman Henrik Ibsen, their various enmities and misunderstandings take on vaudevillian proportions. This world premiere at Seattle Repertory Theatre is sure to spark an evening of insightful conversation and history for you and your Valentine.

Get tix from $43 to “Ibsen in Chicago”!
