We love the Orpheum! We have seen a handful of shows in the past year and have enjoyed all of them. The seating is comfortable and volunteers are very helpful with finding seats etc.

The Orpheum is a beautiful venue. Of all the places I've been I believe it is my favorite. I've never had a bad seat and the acoustics are great. The architecture is beautiful.

I enjoyed the last opera I attended at the Orpheum. In the past the Omaha Performing Arts has searched the entertainment world and brought the best to Omaha. I've enjoyed all the shows that I attended.

If you're from out of town -- or new to Omaha -- you should check out the Orpheum Theater. The acoustics are fantastic, and the inside is a throwback to the old days of even Vaudeville. We've seen plays and concerts there, and it's a...More

There is no parking in front of the Orpheum Theatre on 16th street, so you can be dropped off there. The doors open one hour before the show so you can wait inside the lobby for your husband to park the car.
