Saw the musical production of "Buddy the Elf". Wonderful show, never a dull moment. The Orpheum is a beautiful place to just simply visit. I am sure there is much history to be learned there! I wonder how many famous names have played the Omaha Orpheum??

The only complaint I would have is the seating. I am quite sure there is not a bad seat in the house for viewing the stage. But.......the seats, which must be the original, are very, very small, very close together, with no leg room in front of you. I am not a large person and I was cramped from sitting in an awkward way. If you don't know the person sitting either side of you before the program, you certainly will by the final curtain!

That being said, we would go back again. This place is a gem. Be sure to look up in the center of ceiling at the chandelier!! We have been to the Fox Theater in St. Louis and the Orpheum is every bit as sharp in elegance!

Not happy with Omaha Performing Arts. They recently held a 'Buddy Elf' Ugly Christmas sweater contest. 2 Entrees clobbered everyone but neither won because they had 'irregular' vote totals. So they decided to give the free tickets to the 3 place finish. No explanation, no interviews, very unprofessional. What a scam!

Beautiful venue small enough for a somewhat intimate experience, but large enough to draw major artists. Love Zinc downstairs, but ushers were everywhere. Their constant presence was a little overwhelming and distracting. Overall, you should experience the center- acoustics are amazing and the simplicity of design does not distract from the performance.

The theater is magnificent!! You are even allowed to take pictures when you get in the lobby. Cold drinks are for sale there and the Celtic Women Concert we saw was so awesome!!! We stayed at the Magnolia Hotel which was within walking distance of the theater.

You cannot go wrong going to a performance at either the beautiful Orpheum or the modern Holland. They bring in such great acts and you have to keep on top of the schedule since it does get updated. We have never gone to the Club inside of the Holland but would like to one day. Smaller, casual venue usually jazz.
