I was in town for a show at the Orpheum Theater and I was extremely impressed. The theater is well maintained and clean. All the staff was friendly and professional even with the large crowd. I hope to come back and see another show here!

I am not sure what you mean when saying HH but know I planned to take my elderly mother to see Annie and they put us at the end of the row so it would be easier for her. She is handicapped. I am not sure what they do about... More
