I am a season ticket holder and look forward to every trip to The Orpheum. It is beautifully restored and always fun! Also saw Johnny Mathis show this summer which was outstanding.

Broadway Plays are top notch (not like New York and Chicago casting) but well worth the time and money. The management really does an impressive job with bookings and promotion. Season ticket holders are never disappointed. The theatre is a magnificent landmark - originally the...More
