Lovely theatre that hosts some of Broadway's best shows along with other lesser known acts. The orchestra seating is fairly shallow; we've had the best experiences sitting balcony or close to the stage in orchestra.

The beautiful and historic Orpheum Theatre is worth a visit. Original decor is astounding. Beautiful inside and out. Staff is very accomodating. Not a bad seat in the house. Great surrroundings with many very good restaurants and bars. Saw the show Jersey Boys at the Orpheum. Great show. Loved the acting and music. Took me back to my youth. Having... More

We say Jersey Boys at this theater. What a beautiful ornate theater it is. We sat mid-row on the main floor, and it was a bit hard for me to see around the person in front of me (a tallish person). The sound was great!

I am not a fan of musicals. I bought tickets for Beauty and the Beast for my boyfriend and I to attend and to be frank, I was not looking forward to going. I was shocked that I not only love the production but the atmosphere. The acoustics of the theatre were fantastic. We had wonderful seats that I paid... More

We attend many musicals and always enjoy the shows at the Orpheum. The downside to this theatre is that it is not stadium seating. It's from 'back in the day'. So you may have problems with heads in front of you. If you are sitting behind a wheel chair row, they could actually be sitting higher than you. Also the... More

My wife and I visited the Orpheum last night to see the Broadway revival Pippin. The theatre continues to do a great job in customer service and the newer seats are much, much more comfortable than the original ones were. The performers in Pippin were great, so if you are a student, go buy a rush ticket for $25 cash... More

Attended the Motown play on Dec 21 evening performance with a friend. Sat in first balcony L2. The amplification and sound quality was so poor we almost left. From the very first note from the pit orchestra, the sound was so loud and distorted that it hit the pain threshold frequently throughout the show including some of the women's voices.... More

I love the ambiance of the Orpheum. The venue is on the smaller side as far as theaters go but the environment is grand! The sound was great, the customer service is fantastic. We have seen Wicked here as well as Motown the Musical and we plan to be back for other shows.

The Orpheum Theatre is so beautiful! It has a long entry way into the theatre with small chandeliers hanging all the way from the entrance. Inside the theatre is a huge chandelier hanging in the center that is truly magnificent! The gold painting in different parts of the theatre makes a truly classy venue for all kinds of musical and...

We saw Bob Dylan here two nights in a row - just love this beautiful restored theater! It was easy to get to, and easy to exit as well. Great service too! Loved it!
