    It is the most expensive theatre in the cities but every penny spent is well worth it. We've seen a handful of plays here and enjoyed each of them.

    It is a great theatre that supports a wide variety of shows. Lion King in Summer 2016 was exceptional.

    If you are a woman, plan on 25mins to pee. Pregnant woman's nightmare.

    Being a VIP has its perks - season ticket holders have a special entrance - nice!

    If you are a student or educator, try rush tickets two hours before. $25 could get great seats

    Looking for close parking? Literally across Hennepin is a decently cheap underground parking ramp open to the public. Usually it is cheaper than the surface lot just west of the theatre.

    Make sure to hang around out front after a show to watch old white people from the suburbs walk directly into traffic!

    It was opened in 1921 and they have kept it looking as if it just opened. You'll love going to the Orpheum for plays and musicals.

    Don't go up to the top floor. It's a steep walk down to your seat in heels.

    Great shows, gorgeous chandelier, and you can enjoy drinks in your seat... What's not to love?

    The lower seat numbers are closest to center. For instance, seat 1 in section 2 is better than seat 14 in section 1.

    Buy tickets for events at the Orpheum Theatre in person at the State Theatre Box Office in advance of the performance or night of at the Orpheum Theatre and don't pay any Ticketmaster fees.

    Long bathroom lines? Go to upper levels. Worth it!

    The building opened in 1921, originally named the Hennepin Theater. The ceiling has a dome with 30,000 squares of aluminum leaf. The auditorium & the lobby are actually two separate structures.
