The Orpheum is a lovely historic theatre. The International Blues Competition finals are held here in late January each year. The marquee and outdoor posters showed great plays and music scheduled for this spring. The lobby alone is worth a visit to see what theatres looked like in their heyday.

This is a wonderful place to peruse the history of this lovely building with many stories to tell. Impressive venues come through and often. If you do not have time to see a show, I do think it is worth walking through and reading the history on the placards. Also make sure to read the stars that have places dedicated... More

This was our second visit to the Orpheum for the finals of the IBC. The sound is excellent in the theatre and this old theatre is beautiful. Service for drinks was excellent. I would definitely attend this theatre again.

We attended the Finals of the International Blues Challenge in this theatre. It was beautiful. The decor is ornate and not overdone. The seats are comfortable. There is a $1 coat check. Restrooms were clean and there were rarely long lines at the Ladies. Highly recommended!

Visited the Orpheum for the International Blues Challenge. This is a historic structure with integrity intact. It is beautiful and the acoustics are amazing. Would definitely recommend attending any show there. Staff is super friendly; they serve alcohol. Bathrooms are clean.

Visited last evening for a show with orchestra and effects. Great seats, good sound, superb service by Ms Mayra, plenty of concessions, very well maintained with clean restrooms and you can't beat the location. Blocks from Beale Street. Thank you.
