I was familiar with the music of Arlo Guthrie, but really didn't consider myself to be a big fan. After seeing him perform at the Holland Center, I can't wait to see him again. In addition, the Holland has great acoustics, comfortable seating, and a courteous staff.

An excellent offering of a wide-range of productions, for either classical or modern sensibilities. We are grateful to them for bringing such a great array to Omaha.

A very modern center that was able to handle a rather large crowd attending a graduation event at this location. The staff was quick to show courtesy, give directions and maintain order to many first time visitors. There was plenty of nearby surface and parking garages. There were plenty of ads for various upcoming performances that are scheduled to be... More

Saw the Motown musical recently. The theatre itself is completely lovely. Staff were friendly for the most part. May have been a little worked out as this was the last night of the show. Seating as far as view was good. However getting to the seats one should be aware of the steepness of the stairs. Anyone with mobility issues... More

Have been to many shows at the Orpheum and recently went to see Beauty and the Beast. We were in rows W and V I believe and on the odd side. Unfortunately, I experienced my first bad seat. My seat wasn't staggered as the others are and was directly behind the seat in front of me so I had to... More

We have been attending great concerts and performances at the Orpheum since the 1970's. They have continued to keep this gem in great shape. Hints: 1) There are restrooms in the lowest level, utilize these when the lines are long on the main floor. 2)The coat check is located downstairs. While it has a large seating capacity, it provides the... More

Over the years we have been to the Orpheum Theatre for several shows, Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, The Producers, and tonight The Blue Man Group (thanks to our son for buying Mom tickets for her birthday!) Great venue! Ornate and spacious. A gem in downtown Omaha!

Vaudeville, movies and now Broadway-quality shows highlight the history of Omaha’s Orpheum Theater. The Orpheum opened in 1927. It was home to vaudeville performers during the early days. It became a movie theater in the 1960s. Jerry Lewis was the last known live performer in 1961, before the Orpheum transitioned into a movie house. For the rest of the 1960s... More

Shows at the Orpheum are truly an unforgettable experience. This place has both a beautiful lobby as well as theater area - a phenomenal renovation was done to really give you the sense of seeing a show in the "old days". Seating is situated so there's not a bad POV anywhere. Highly recommend seeing any of the touring Broadway shows... More
