Readers rave about 5th Avenue Theatre, rant about Ballard Bridge work.

RAVE To the woman outside the 5th Avenue Theatre who gave my son and his girlfriend her extra ticket to “Mamma Mia!” And rave to the theater for not only a great show but for having discounted same-day walk up tickets and a student discount, a great way to get the younger generation started going to these events, investing in what will likely become lifelong patrons.

RANT To whoever decided midday on a weekday was a good time to perform maintenance on the northbound lanes of the Ballard Bridge, inconveniencing hundreds (thousands?) of individuals and businesses as much of Magnolia and Queen Anne quickly became gridlocked.
