My family and I have been here for multiple performances and have never been disappointed. We always sit in the Louge which I would say is the best spot the sit. They get some of the best Broadway musicals. The staff is very friendly and you can't beat how old and majestic the Orpheum looks. If you are in town... More

The Orpheum is a great place to catch your favorite plays when they are in town. The staff is very friendly and willing to help you find your seat if you are unfamiliar with the theater. I have sat in sever locations and have not had a bad view of the stage in any of them.

The Orpheum Theater is downtown Omaha's crown jewel. Our last visit was in December for the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas concert. The acoustics inside this building are perfect for listening to music, and we weren't disappointed. A few years earlier, we enjoyed a concert by the Moody Blues. Both caused chills down my spine. Another plus at the Orpheum: Full-service bars... More

A great venue for any Broadway show! The seats may be a bit confining, but the ornate and gorgeous decor makes up for the seating. The ushers are always courteous, helpful and always professional. We love making the trip downtown for a special evening to see a show there!!

The Orpheum is an old but well-maintained theater for the performing arts. It offers both high- and moderate-level entertainment and is one of only two well-known and much-frequented venues for the live arts. The acoustics are above-average and 'most' seating provides a wonderful view of the stage. If you can splurge. . .sit on the main floor!
