Orpheum Theater

Beautiful, historical, ornate inside, nothing like it. Always great performances. I love the louge seats or orchestra, but nothing really bad.

I like that it is a smaller venue. Can't really have a bad seat. I saw the Jersey Boys, Blue Man Group and the Yamamoto (?) drummers. It feels intimate.

The orpheum is always brining in a great choice of plays, shows, and concerts. Has a classic feel of an opera house.

We've gone to many performances at the Orpheum and every show has been enjoyable and almost every seat affords a decent, if not always close, view of the performance. The ushers have always been friendly and helpful, in my experience. There is a parking garage to the southwest of the theater that offers a skywalk directly into the Orpheum which... More

Most shows we see are tribute shows to music periods or music stars. Many are accompanied by the Omaha symphony. They add so much to every show. The symphony concerts by themselves are things of awe &... More

My husband and I have gone to shows here since we were dating! Wonderful theatre experience, and the variety of shows are worth going to see. Excited this year to take the kids to go see a show. Lots of parking nearby but get there early. We often try and eat downtown and walk to the Orpheum when it is... More

The Orpheum is an amazing venue to go to some of your favorite musicals and shows. I just went to the Jersey Boys in March 2017. The bathrooms were clean, and even monitored in intermission to keep the line moving quickly. The Orpheum seats were comfortable. The leg room may be a bit small for a tall person, but I'm... More

We always love attending events at the Orpheum! Not a bad seat in the house -- great sound -- just a gorgeous place with such great character and history.
