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!
