It is beautiful- but needs to undergo remodeling by adding more conveniently located bathrooms. There are a lot of stairs her. Seating at the venue is good.

Another fun night out at the Orpheum Theatre. Easy get to and plenty of parking in the area. It is the right size so you usually can enjoy a performance from any seat.

We have visited the Orpheum Theatre on several occasions. This is an absolutely beautiful theatre, however, because of its age, seating can be an issue. We attended "The Book of Mormon" last night and the gentleman who sat in front of me was rather tall...More
