Second visit to Orpheum in Memphis. Is adjacent to famous Beale street. Just a couple of blocks from the Mississippi River. The theater is absolutely stunning. Restored to its original glory and being lost in a fire in the early 1900’s. Both visits have been to see Wicked. Blown away by both performances.

The upper levels are steep stairs for short legs. The seating is tight if you have a little weight on you. The staff is always above and beyond. The intermission is only 15 mins and gives you very little time to go with the long lines. Suggested you get that done prior to show. They do have drinks at intermission even in upper levels.

We parked right next door at the MLWG parking garage. You can reserve and pay ahead. You walk out from garage and the Orpheum is right next door. Felt safe in the area.

Visited for the first and last time. Parked in a well lighted lot directly across the street and no less that 12 cars had windows smashed out and burglarized. Cops said it happens every night there. Won’t be back in Memphis anymore.

We were just visiting Memphis for the day and when we saw Frozen was playing and the history of the Opheum, we stayed an extra day to get tickets. Very worth our time and money.

I went to see Frozen the Musical on a girls trip. The theater itself is absolutely beautiful, and the quality of the performances was top notch. However, the theater is not in a great part of town. I'd recommend parking in the garage nearest the theater to minimize the distance you have to walk, especially at night. Also, the air conditioning isn't great. We sat in the balcony & were actively sweating within the first 15 minutes of the show.

Needs a plus size section. My neighboring attendant acted as if I was a nuisance because we were shoulder to shoulder, leg to leg. I ended up leaving during intermission. Dont think I'll be returning.

We saw the musical “Dear Evan Hansen” here. It was within walking distance if our hotel. The theatre was had a great vibe. It wasn’t too large like the others we have been to, and the historic look was awesome.

Beautiful historic theatre. It’s smaller than some theaters and feels intimate. It’s well maintained and just lovely. Right near Beale Street downtown. We saw Pretty Woman which was quite good. .

Saw Bonnie Raitt here. Excellent venue for a concert. Great acoustics. Beautiful old theatre. Staff was very helpful and concessions were readily available. You were able to have snacks and drinks in your seats. We walked there so unsure about parking availability. I would definitely recommend for a show.
