Among the most successful of Seattle’s 19th century “sporting clubs” was the People’s Theater. Catering to the city’s swelling population of loggers, miners and sailors, the People’s Theater opened in 1890 in the wake of the Great Seattle Fire. . . Box theaters were a favorite venue among lascivious Seattleites, allowing patrons to enjoy performers onstage and purchase drinks from hostesses, who also offered to assuage their customers’ loneliness in curtained-off boxes.
