My Wife and I were here for the Joe Bonnamasa concert on 8/7/18. Very beautiful venue! Only four stars are given because of the cramped legroom and the acoustics. It is a gorgeous piece of Omaha's history though.

Went to see Wicked and was not disappointed. Amazing acoustics and quality of performance. Very clean and well organized. Pay the extra to get on the floor or front of balcony, although all seats are adequate. Great place!

Went to Russian Cinderella Ballet this week. Good intertainment! Would hope they tell people to Not use cell phones for recording during performances. Access to restrooms could be improved.

Saw wicked here for a night show. Gorgeous outside and inside. Drinks were related to the show. Great view from even balcony. Was one of my favorite dates to this day.

Opus Cactus is, in a word, delicious. More than dance, it is a gloriously satisfying repast for the senses: a celebration in color, light, sound and movement of the potentialities of the human frame. Experience it and you will be delighted.

This is our first year as season ticket holders, but not the first time we've attended musical theater at the Orpheum. It is a spectacular building, mirrored and stair-cased and chandeliered. There is always a buzz of anticipation before the show as one climbs the...More

The Orpheum in Omaha has a long and varied history. It was a vaudeville theater 'back in the day'. Being in my 70's, I remember going to see live 'stage shows' with a touring orchestra with vocalists and dancers. I saw "Gone With The Wind"...More
