Saw Phantom of the Opera and the Orpheum was just the place to do it! Architecture matched the stage as did the beautiful chandeliers that light the Theater.

We stopped at the Orpheum on our national tour. The local crew was helpful and a great deal of fun to work with. I only hope I can get back there soon.

Attended the show "Once". Staff were outstanding and the theater is beautifully restored. The sound system was great. Seats are not the most comfortable but the cosmetic aspect is breathtaking.

This is a beautiful old but well kept theater. I have attending the Ballet and many shows in this building. I really enjoy the atmosphere! Great shows are always in store!

Great lineup of shows but it's worth the price of admission just to sit in this gorgeous theater. I've seen movies, Broadway shows, radio broadcasts, ballets, and comedy shows here. All were fantastic.

I saw the musical Wicked and I loved it. It was a nice place fitting for a theater. I annoyed my time there. It has good shows around the year.

When in the city, try to catch a show at The Orpheum. The beautiful, restored theater has great acoustics, and a wonderful Broadway show lineup. I love their app and Student Rush $20-$25 tickets at the door 30mins before select show. I am a teacher and my id let me buy at that awesome price.

We came and watch "Once" - a musical, which was good and made much better by the beautifully interior of the Theatre. We sat at the very top - and the views were still great. Acoustics a bit weak, but definitely worth a visit.

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!
