This place gives you an authentic theater experience! There are so many beautiful touches! The marble, the stair cases, the lighting that is hung just in front of the balcony! There are plenty of places to take some gorgeous pictures. I've been to numerous shows and they always have drink & snack stations conveniently located near or on each level.... More

Say "Nebraska" and people think "Huskers.". But there is so much more to this rich, mid-west city!! Art shops, theatre, all types of music, opera, ballet, and much more!! There truly is something for everyone, whether you're at the Holland Center, the Orpheum, the Playhouse, Jazz on the Green, Concerts in the Park, the Cathedral Arts Project, the Love Jazz... More

I went to see the show Lion King. Amazing performance! Ushers are very helpful! Amazing stage prop effects! Great place to watch a Broadway production.

This is one of the best venues to see any performance. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house.

Performing arts theater. The Nutcracker was the first one that I saw here when I was a little girl. They brought the play Jesus Christ Super Star here also, which I was able to see the play when I was a teenager. Wonderful actors and actresses. Finally got to see The Phantom of the Opera here too. wonderful performances. Ballets... More

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
