Been there for two events, Good time for all.

Seating was good, not crowded and the stage was well arranged. Had a good time at both events, and the attendants were very helpful.

I went here years ago for the show with Dame Edna and it is such a classic place I loved it. I need to go back before it is gone.

We saw Today's Masters last week, a wonderful combination of classical and modern ballet. The last piece Rio was particularly well-done. The Orpheum is a beautifully restored theatre. The problem is that it is difficult to see the dancers' feet as the audience is not higher than the stage. wE were in the 8th row and had to strain to... More

This Spanish Revival style theater from 1927 is beautiful in its blending of Arizona al fresco murals with a gilded beaux-arts grandeur. The seating is fairly comfortable with a less than optimum slope, so visibility over tall heads may be an issue. The biggest shortcomings are the bathrooms only on the lower level with a single tiny elevator making bathroom... More

This is a "two for one" destination because not only will you see a great show but you will also be able to tour the best restoration of an early Phoenix building in the city. They did a wonderful job restoring this theater to it's former glory - including the ceiling which lights up in the progression from dawn to... More

A trip to the Orpheum theater should be on everyone's list of things to do. The building itself is wonderful to look at and see the architecture. The acoustics are good and the seats are comfortable. They have seated in chairs in the back and a few places midway through for the disabled. I visited once in December for a... More

If you enjoy viewing Broadway shows in a venue that is the right size, this is it. Although it's a classic , it isn't out dated. It is still stunning. The seats are roomy and comfortable. The sound system is right on. The seat line of sight allows good visibility. Parking is not too difficult . There are a number... More
