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 is a beautiful building that has recently had a face lift. Recently saw Diana Ross and the show was awesome.

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.

I have attended many productions here at the Orpheum. They have preserved the theater well and the sound system is great. The cushioned seats and temperatures are very comfortable however the row of seats in front of you don't leave much for leg room so if you have leg issues take that into consideration when purchasing your ticket. Love the... More

I have seen everything in this theater from comedians to Broadway shows to musical concerts and even movies back in the 60's. This has always been a great place,with great acoustics and a rich history. While it is somewhat dated, it's still beats the new concert halls and auditoriums around the area, to see almost any kind of performance. New... More

This organization was giving a difficult mission...to program two performing arts centers in Omaha. But from day one they have not been a team player. They sucked other arts organizations under their wing and did not deliver on promised support and publicity. They have been determined to expand their empire at the expense of iconic historic architecture in Omaha. Yes,... More

I went to the Orpheum to see The Phantom of the Opera April 30th. The theatre is a picture of old school beauty. The venue has been preserved so well it is like you have stepped back in time. They also let you bring in snacks which is really refreshing that it hasn't been commercialized. I would recommend Grand Tier... More
