Great shows!

Have seen many shows at the Orpheum-and enjoyed all. The acoustics are good-my only complaint is the seats are small and not comfortable!

The Orpheum is one of the cities oldest preforming arts locations. The history has been kept through out the theater over the years with updates that do not overpower the historic values. The acoustics are fantastic and there really isn't a bad seat in the house. My advice book a show and experience it for yourself.

Omaha Performing Arts venues offer great experience, whether is a historical old building like Orpheum Theater or modern Concert hall, such as Holland Performing Arts Center. Accommodations are great with per-function areas and socializing spaces. In addition the varieties of performances from concerts of individual bands or popular Broadway cast, to famous musicians to featuring rising local starts provide a... More

Very beautiful the building it's seems the years hasn't pass by. We went for the 2014 Rockettes Christmas show and it was amazing!! It looks like everybody knows each other when locals go to the Orpheum. The staff was ok not really very friendly as we expected but it was fine. The seats on the second level was kind of... More

1st time in Omaha. Came all the way from Wisconsin to see Jim Jeffries. We were not disappointed. Venue was small enough to feel close (15th row) but big enough and so well appointed you felt like this was an upscale event. Facility was well organised and staff was super friendly, as were most people we met in Omaha. great... More

The program takes you back to the vaudeville days of entertainment. The filagree decor sets the mood for any event. The acoustics are great for music. It also houses one of the countries oldest and biggest pipe organs, with the pipes behind the curtains to the left and right of stage. They serve quality drinks before events and on intermission....

I went to the Orpheum for the first time to see an Opera. I was amazed at the beauty of the building. Once inside, I was mesmerized at how stunning this place in Omaha Nebraska is. The acoustics were right on. I recommend trying this gem in the rough out.

This theater is just fantastic. The staff is friendly, it is clean, and the restrooms are tidy. Even though it is an old building, it is kept up very well.

Recently saw "The Book of Mormon" from a loge box seat. The view was fine; the room limited, even with an aisle seat. The look of the Orpheum is old style grand, almost baroque. Acoustics are good. The biggest issues are the smallish seats with narrow aisles and limited restrooms.
