Christmas, old world charm and Mannheim Steamroller it doesn't get much better than that. Six of us attended this concert and had a fantastic time. The building itself is absolutely gorgeous! But the size of the seats is a challenge for the average person let alone someone of any size. Your leg room is limited and you get to know... More

This was a top notch performance at a top notch venue, very much enjoyed the show and the theater is very beautiful. I had attended a performance of Cats there a few years ago and there were all kinds of problems with the sound system and I was avoiding going back. These tickets were given to me as a gift,...

I visited Memphis in June 2011. I went to the Orpheum to see a performance of Disney's Beauty & the Beast on Broadway. The theatre was suitable for the performance. Not too large and seating was comfortable. Performance was really enjoyable. You can take the trolley to the theatre too. This theatre is suitable for all ages including families.

Theater goers flock to the Orpheum every time the doors open. It offers the very best Broadway shows, movies, musicals, and specialty acts fro around the world. My granddaughter loves sing alongs especially Mama Mia. Dress up if you like, the atmosphere is nostalgic, complimentary to formal attire, and the theater is beautifully maintained with gold, curtains, box seats reminiscent... More

The Orpheum is an old theater but was comfortable for our show. We had seats in the balcony. It was easy in and easy out up there. I usually have cramped legs in a theater like this but that was not the issue here. The seats though are tight and you can't really sit comfortably by the stranger next to... More

This is the best way to finish the most perfect evening. We started off by eating dinner at Tuscany Italian Eatery just two blocks away. They make everything from scratch such a nice cute little place. Then we walked three minutes to the Orpheum and had the most amazing time. It is such a beautiful place inside in the staff... More
