First visit to the Orpheum and I will say it is a beautiful theater. Now for the seating, my advice is do not seat in the Premium seating section. The Premium seating area is to flat, my wife and I couldn't see over the people in front of us and they were not tall. My suggestion sit in the balcony... More

I would not pay the price I did to sit on floor seats at this theater again. I would think the balcony would be the way to go. The 3 women in front of me decided they couldn't see and got booster cushions. Grant it the seating is tight and not very sloped, but the women now completely blocked my... More

I just love this old theater. It has been impeccably restored to its original opulence and cointinues to be well maintained. I have seen concerts and theater productions at this venue and the acoustic and stage are top rate. The only draw back to the theater especially on the main floor is the closeness of the rows and lack of... More

Went to see the show MAMMA MIA, which was great. There were many times to laugh during the show. Knowing the show was here before, I am sorry I didn't see before. Glad I did this time. Always fun to make it a "date night" and go out to eat before the show. Many great places close by. I

Gorgeous theatre! I saw the production of The Bodyguard while I was in town for my blog and enjoyed the show and the atmosphere.

I have attended many events at the Orpheum, from traveling broadway shows to comedians to concerts. The theatre is beautiful. Very classy with friendly staff! We were so impressed that we bought season tickets to the broadway shows. Great asset in downtown Minneapolis!

Just came from the Broadway musical production - The BodyGuard playing at the Orpheum Theatre. It is a musical play based on the the movie The BodyGuard. Good acting and exceptional singing. One of the best plays I have ever seen. A must see for couples! The theatre is wonderful, and it's accessible from the Hawthorn parking ramp. There is... More
