After 12 years, $14 million and an incredible amount of perseverance, the historic Orpheum Theatre has been renovated for "adaptive reuse," restoring as much of its visible splendor as possible, while retrofitting it as a modern theatre capable of handling anything Broadway sends its way. And its marquee at Second Avenue and Adams Street again announces the names of first class productions, drawing thousands of people to a vibrant downtown venue.
The Orpheum Theatre is a facility of the Phoenix Convention Center & Venues, which also includes Symphony Hall, Herberger Theater and five parking garages. Volunteer ushers and docents, with the Friends of the Orpheum Theatre, staff events at the venue and provide FREE monthly public tours to educate the community about the historic theatre.
