“Great Venue.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I remember seeing the Twin Cities Premier of The Godfather I think 1973. Much later I worked security at numerous concerts held there. Down in the basement of the building you would see a lot of props, signs etc from years gone by. Great acoustics and an intimate setting.

“Girls Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My mother and I went to see Theresa Caputo the Long Island Medium. Wonderful! Friendly staff and easy to navigate, also very easy to grab a cab right after. Keeping an eye out for more fun shows at the theatre.

“Beauty and the Beast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Great venue. Great musical. We attended the 1 pm show, so there was ample parking near by. Picked up tickets at Will Call, easy to get in, easy to get out.

“Wonderful Broadway productions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

The Orpheum theater is a favorite. The location is so convenient and in the winter you can park in the A parking ramp and don't even have to go outside to get there, just follow the skyways. The staff is knowledgeable and accommodating for our needs. The shows are always well done and very enjoyable. Overall, we have had many great experiences at the Orpheum.

“Plays Are Great; Seats Uncomfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We've had season tickets to the Broadway Across America musicals for 2 seasons. Love the plays there. But the seats are too close together (we are in balcony, row C and have NO leg room) and the stairs are steep with no handrails so I felt nervous using them. I like the decor better in the State Theatre also. Too bad they can't use a different venue.
