Take advantage of the free tour offered during the lunch hour on some weekdays. The inside of this building is beautiful. The docent goes into history of the building and was very knowledgable. Fun FREE tour!

I visited the Orpheum for a recent Shen Yun performance, and the building itself is lovely. I first visited a few years ago to attend an opera, and it definitely has that classic opera house feel. The exterior has a southwestern mission feel, with a marquee reminiscent of vintage Broadway. The interior is exquisite, with elaborate murals, carvings, and red... More

If you ever get a chance to see a show here, take it. Just seeing the building alone will be worth the cost.

We need to make sure that we take care of this venue, because this is a phoenix gem. There always rumors that they are going to want to tear it down, but I can only hope that this building remains unchanged.

We have been to many different shows at the Orpheum and even though it is a smaller venue it is always a great time. If you have a chance to see a show here you will not be disappointed.

I've attended events at the Orpheum Theater. It is a beautiful building and provides an awesome setting and acoustics for concerts, shows, and ballet.

It was our first time at the Orpheum. We were actually quite impressed. It is easy to get to on Adams Street, the ushers are very friendly, and we were able to bring our drinks to the seats. The theater is spacious with awesome acoustics and not a bad seat anywhere. The Roy Orbison Returns act was good and added... More

Long lines but moved pretty fast. Needs more parking for this venue in downtown Phx. Lovely inside decor and many had to stand. It probably should have been planned better for that large a group.

Intimate setting, wonderful for ballets, concerts and plays. It is a beautiful place, restored thanks to the Junior League's untiring efforts and several grants and large donations. Parking is a challenge as it is anywhere downtown.
