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

We have had season tickets for a number of years now for their plays. Once in awhile we come across a bad one, but the majority are great entertainment. So glad they have kept this historical building in downtown Phoenix. You will not be sorry if you attend a performance at the Orpheum.

We went to a performance of the nutcracker this winter and enjoyed the production very much. The Theater is very attractive and although this was not the best dance company, the use of lots of kids, a happy spin on the story and enthusiastic cast members made this an event we will long remember. Because it is not easy to... More

We went to the Nutcracker Ballet here. The theater has been remodled. The lobby area is modern but the theater area still has the old decorations. Was a lot of fun looking around and the Ballet was wonderful.

This place is just so ornate. It reminds me of a different place in time. We have been here for musicals, dance and plays. Just lovely. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house.

I attend the touring theater productions here. It's a step back in time architecture to classic theaters. Smallish so more intimate feeling. Not a bad seat in the house. Even if not attending a show, go see the building in downtown Phoenix.
