The Orpheum is unique and special! It's 'antique' feel and features are just beautiful! All seats are set up to where every one in the house has a good view! We have been to several plays and concerts here and we will continue to go! Love this place!

My wife and I drove from Little Rock to Memphis for "The Phantom of the Opera". The theatre was beautiful, the temperature was nice and cool, and the show was absolutely fantastic. We had a great experience. I highly recommend this venue andwe will be back.

Wanted to go into this theater since I'd heard so much about it, but there was a production of the Phantom of the Opera being presented. So I just got to see the outside and peek in the doors. This is just as I'd imagined - a fantastic theater that needs to be toured. That will be on my list... More

We attended Elvis Week activities three times at the gorgeous venue! It was a perfect place for the Ultimate Tribute Contest and the screening of the remastered That's the Way it Is.

The Orpheum Theater is one of the most beautiful theaters I have ever seen. It is grand in decor. Seating is very good. The size offers the opportunity for large shows and easy movement of large numbers of people. I've never been disappointed.

Our recent attendance at the Phantom of the Opera, which is one of our favorite musicals, was made less enjoyable by our inability to fully hear the words of the performers.

My best friend, my daughter and I came to Memphis to see The Phantom of the Opera this past weekend at the Orpheum. What an amazing experience! The atmosphere of The Orpheum was as much at experience as The Phantom. We will definitely make the trip back soon!

This is a wonderfully maintained theater. I was very impressed. Its like you step back in time when you enter the theater itself. there are lots of great details in the architecture. My husband and I had a great night out.

My wife & friends and I just attended the Phantom Of The Opera at the Orpheum. What a perfect venue with Gold leafed and silver adornments blending right in to the massive elaborate sets of the Phantom on stage. No setting could be better.
