Great venue

We've seen a couple concerts here and have been very pleased both times. There isn't a bad seat in the house.

Recently saw Garrison Keillor at The Orpheum! Keillor was awesome! Great acoustics/sight lines! Was disappointed over all with the venue! Renovated some time back, The Orpheum is beautiful, no doubt. Total of four levels of seating. Bathrooms only on two levels. Depending on your seating, you will have to negotiate stairs for nature's call. For this particular show, the bathrooms... More

Last week I saw (4) great shows @ The Orpheum. Through the years I've been thankful to have such an iconic venue in Memphis. To have a stage large enough to accommodate the biggest Broadway productions is a real coup. Live entertainment is always magical to me ~ I've never been a movie buff, but I'm mesmerized by the talent... More

I saw the musical Beautiful with two of my best friends. The Orpheum is spectacular - there isn't a bad seat in the house. The musical was wonderful. I will definitely see it when it returns next year.

We were lucky to see a show while in Memphis. Beautiful the Carol King story was playing. We purchased 3rd row seats and it was amazing. You gotta see this place if in town!

I have loved this theatre since I was a little girl. It is so beautiful and rich in history! Those that work and volunteer there are so kind! Cannot wait to see the next show there!

What a beautiful venue! It is gorgeous on the inside and you are able to see the entertainment from any seat you are in. We even got up close and personal with the opening act during intermission. I love this venue and plan to come back as often as possible

Any time at the Orpheum is a good time! This is a stunning theater that just transports you back in time every single time you step through the doors. There is absolutely no bad seat in the house, so don't feel pressured to by the most expensive tickets-you won't need them! The stage is visible from all seats. There isn't... More
