Great show put on at the Orpheum. Only complaint is the bathroom situation. - Way too small for the amount of people.

Broadway Plays are top notch (not like New York and Chicago casting) but well worth the time and money. The management really does an impressive job with bookings and promotion. Season ticket holders are never disappointed. The theatre is a magnificent landmark - originally the...More

I've seen a few shows here and I've never been disappointed. Besides plays and musicals, make sure you check out the summer movie series. You will probably find something just for you.

The Orpheum has always been a lovely venue to catch a broadway show, or watch the summer movies series each year. The look and feel of this spot makes you feel like you're watching a show back in time. It's timeless and classic!

I have seen many plays, musicals, concerts, etc... at the Orpheum. It is very beautiful. Viewing is good from most seats.....HOWEVER, there is not much leg room....hence the 4 star rating. Other than leg room, it's a definite HIGH FIVE!!

Hello! Let's take you questions in order. 1. The Comfort Inn is at 100 N Front St (one block west of Main) and the Orpheum is at 203 South Main. So, one block over and about 8 blocks South. It is about an 8 to 10... More
