Well known landmark used for the backstage scenes in Prince's, "Purple Rain." Had a chance to get a glimpse, but locked up tighter than a Revolution Drum.

I am not reviewing the performances at the Orpheum, as each is unique and should be judged on its own merits. We recently saw Wicked at the Orpheum, and it was amazing and fantastic. However, the theater should be viewed objectively as a place to...More

I have been to the Orpheum a few times and never disappoints. The theater is historic and beautifully restored. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The staff of the Orpheum are great, except I would have appreciated the usher that saw the person...More

Saw Rent last weekend and I will say the people in this play have amazing voices. It was such a lively production and so entertaining. I highly recommend seeing "RENT".

I actually have never had a bad seat in the house. I have sat in many different spots and never been disappointed. Guess I am not the best person to answer this question.
