2021 - 2022 Orpheum Memphis Broadway Series

2021 - 2022 Orpheum Memphis Broadway Series

If you're a fan of the theater, then seeing a Broadway production at The Orpheum has to be on your Memphis bucket list.

One of my absolute favorite things to do in Memphis is to see a Broadway show at the beautiful, classy historic Orpheum Theatre on Beale Street. This has a lot to do with me being a musical nerd and Broadway lover, but even theater newbies can find a show they enjoy at the Orpheum.

The theater itself has a long and interesting history, starting off as a vaudeville theater in the 1800s with numerous rebuilds and restorations (including after a devastating 1923 fire). Today's Orpheum still has the historic gilded ceilings, velvety carpets, and incredible performances. It's the perfect date night, friend-date night, or hang-out-with-your-mom activity.  

I have so many memories of wonderful and weird shows, everything from Broadway blockbusters like Wicked and Hamilton to hilarious shows like Something Rotten! (one of my all-time underrated favorites) and heartfelt tearjerkers like The Color Purple.

I appreciate that Memphis gets to see Broadway shows and other big concerts without having to go to New York, and I also appreciate that the lineup always has a mix of classics, newer shows. and jukebox musicals. Here's what show are coming to Memphis this season at the Orpheum downtown:

I purchased two season tickets for Sat. Matinee for 2019-2020.  When will I be able to use these tickets ?    I live in North Arkansas and May now have schedule conflicts in Fall 2021
