I took my wife to the Orpheum in Phoenix for Valentines Day. The last time she was there was about 20 years ago after the renovation. I had never been. We attended an evening performance of Shen Yun Performing Arts. This is a company of world-class dancers and musicians performing traditional Chinese cultural dances. The theater is amazing. It was... More

We attended a lovely Chinese dance performance today at the Orpheum and enjoyed it but thought the seats were uncomfortable. We sat in orchestra and for what we paid would have preferred a more comfortable seat.

If you want a gorgeous fully-restored theater to see your play, classical or contemporary, this place is your venue. My company took us to a play here for the Christmas party back in 2011, and it was absolutely stunning. The decorations on the walls reeked of history, and the pictures of the stars that have visited showed the length of... More

We attended a recent live broadcast of the Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon. I had never been to the Orpheum Theatre. What a beautiful place. Very nice! I will be looking for more shows, theatre shows that will be held at the beautiful Orpheum.

I went with a buddy to enjoy the Feherty Live event last week. I had been for a concert so knew it was a neat venue. Because it only holds about 1,500 people ever seat is a good one. We were in the balcony and had a great view of the stage but the sound system was not set up... More

I've been to the Phoenix Zoo several times in the last couple of years but had never had the experience of visiting during Zoo Lights! Wow! The light show was amazing on its own but the fact that majority of them were shaped to resembled zoo animals really added a special touch. I will keep coming back every winter just... More

I Love this theater for its architecture, renovated to keep its classic feel and great location in central Phoenix. The seats are comfortable and great view of the small stage. The sound system is professional and great acoustics. I've seen concerts, dance ensembles and musical shows here; ALL were fabulous and worth every penny. I wish more solo artists would... More

Fall in love with these amazing characters. Hard to pick a favorite among them, but maybe Lumiere!!the scene and costumes were fabulous! The singing was perfect and the acting was superb. The theater looks great and the sound was ideal.
