This historic Minneapolis venue is beyond a classic - starting with the intricate, artistic details in the interior architecture - to the grand, multi-level theatre seating. Large-sized theatre-goers may not enjoy the somewhat cramped legroom and made-for-humans-of-decades-ago seating, but I can say that every seat I've ever booked in this theatre has consistently provided a great view of the stage/entertainment....

Saw the Brian Setzer orchestra Christmas show. Theatre is very intimate. Almost every seat is excellent. Beautiful setting. Plenty of bathrooms. Run next door to McKenzie s during intermission if you want a drink.

At a recent performance of "The Great Russian Nutcracker" we had main section seats for over $100 per seat. Despite this, I was unable to see the middle 20 feet of the stage. A very tall woman and her tall daughter, both with Texas sized hair, sat in front of me. At 5'7" I am not short. Still, they swayed,... More

I sat in the nose bleed seats, the balcony! The view was good and the Carole King show was fantastic. But seriously, are the seats made for midgets? I'm 6'3" and was in pain the part of the show I was able to sit through. The poor people in front of me had the pleasure of my knee in their... More

Our seats a zero! Row A balcony the seats had NO legroom with a wall and a bar. The wall left no room for your legs or feet if you're over 5 feet tall. The bar was right in the line of sight so view of stage was obstructed. Very disappointed to pay for premium seats and be so uncomfortable... More

Saw The Little Mermard Broadway touring show here in October 2015. Got incredibly reasonably priced, very last minute tickets. Though I was seated far (balcony, row S), I had perfect line of sight to the stage. Stage is a bit small, but this show wasn't hampered by it, and the acoustics were also wonderful. The theatre itself is a work... More

I have seen many plays here and have never been disappointed in the quality of the play or the seating. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house and the seats are pretty comfy. I was also impressed at how quickly the line moved during intermission for getting some refreshments. We had plenty of time to use... More

The Orpheum theatre is a great place to see Broadway caliber shows. It is located on Hennepin Ave in downtown Minneapolis. It is connected to the Skyway system and several parking ramps, on a second floor entry. This entry is usually not too crowded. The interior is classic. Very beautiful and worth seeing in and of itself. They often have... More

I've seen multiple shows here and have never been disappointed. If you can get seats in one of the boxes, I highly recommend it. That being said, I haven't had bad seats anywhere.

I've seen a couple of rock shows here and they've been great! The sound is great and the view is good from anywhere. Although, if you can get a seat on the sides do it!
