I was here for The Phantom of the Opera, which was outstanding! The theater is beautiful and staff did a good job getting everyone checked through the entrance and seated at a good pace. Balcony seats close to front row were excellent. Even off to...More

I was in town for a show at the Orpheum Theater and I was extremely impressed. The theater is well maintained and clean. All the staff was friendly and professional even with the large crowd. I hope to come back and see another show here!

Was here for a production of the Nutcracker ballet. Delighted to see a full house. The lobby, while small, has beautifully restored artwork. Theatre itself has good sight lines and very nice restoration. However, the seating capacity greatly exceeds what the hallways or restrooms can...More

Watching the taping of "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me" was painful. Seats are much too cramped (at least balcony seating). I have been there previously, on the main floor, an don't recall being cramped.

This is the best play I have ever seen! The production, acting, music, and costumes were all absolutely awesome! I highly recommend seeing this show. The Orpheum as a facility is pretty good, I understand it’s an old facility, but the seats are fairly uncomfortable...More

We went to see Aladdin with some friends. The show was pretty good. However, the way that the seats are arranged, the head of the person in front of me, blocked my view of the center third of the stage. The sound system was ok,...More

Response from Kat L |
It depends which section you are in, since there are four row HH in the building. If you are looking at tickets for Phantom, yes, the balcony obstructs the top half of the stage. Which I personally believe is poor planning... More
