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!

I attended productions at the Orpheum before it was restored, and the restoration project that was completed a while back is simply stunning. The mastery of those who completed the restoration process were true to the original glory of when it first opened. And the productions are fantastic combining the realism of what is possible by simple human action combined... More

Although this is a beautiful old theater, I would think long and hard before seeing a show here again. There is not enough of a grade. I had what I thought were good seats for Book of Mormon, but had to spend the entire first act wiggling my head back and forth to see between the people in front of... More

It all came together for me for my visit to the Orpheum! While visiting Minneapolis an improv group I love was at the theatre! The ticket I ended up getting was a balcony seat beside the aisle. Perfect! I actually found that the balcony seats closest to the front looked better than the floor seats. Great view of the whole... More

Saw Book of Morman - excellent. With Seats up high you lose sound quality, but that was okay to miss some words. The interior of the theater is just so AMAZING to look at. Go early just to scope it all out. Having cocktails available was nice, they even let you pre-order for intermission to a quick pick-up vs waiting... More
