3 to See: Week of May 16

‘Hamilton’ Tribute Band

After just one listen, it’s pretty much impossible to forget the beats and lyrics of the Tony award-winning musical Hamilton. If you’ve never experienced the music live, consider Rise Up: The Hamilton Tribute Band beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Friday at Tacoma’s Historic Rialto Theater. Tickets start at $19 and can be purchased via phone, online, or at the box office.

Macy’s Backstage Grand Opening

Even though Mother’s Day was last weekend, that doesn’t mean the gifts have to end, right? If you’re still looking to grab your mom a gift, head over to the Tacoma Mall on Saturday for the grand opening of Macy’s Backstage. The store-within-a-store will offer shoppers everything they could want from apparel to home goods to cosmetics. To celebrate the opening, Macy’s is offering $20 gift cards to the first 100 customers in line when the doors open at 9 a.m., and special events throughout the day.
