Orpheum Theatre Massachusetts History

Built all the way back in 1852, this is a theater unlike any other venue you're likely to find, as Orpheum Theatre has been putting on one great show after another for many, many years. Though it's had plenty of name and structural changes, the Orpheum Theatre remains one of the best places around Boston for live entertainment, which is saying quite a bit considering this city's reputation for entertainment excellence. Once you're there in the stands watching one of your favorite productions get underway, you'll be glad that you're not sitting at home watching something on that disappointing little flatscreen that you have tucked in the corner of your living room.

Over the years, Orpheum Theatre has had just about every different type of show that you can imagine. In the early days, vaudeville shows lit up the stage and entertained the masses, then it was on to becoming a first-run movie house during the early golden years of Hollywood. After that, Orpheum Theatre expanded to concerts and other musical events, including an unbelievable show from rock legends like U2 and plenty of others. These days, you never know who you might find coming to the stage at Orpheum Theatre, which is why it's always a good idea to keep your eye on the calendar.

Boston, Massachusetts

As one of the seminal cities in the country, Boston enjoys one of the longest and most storied histories in the U.S. A crucial city in the founding of the country, leading to a patriotic tradition that is never surpassed, Boston has plenty to offer when it comes to entertainment. Of course, the Red Sox of the MLB, the Celtics of the NBA and the Bruins of the NHL have seen plenty of success over the years, helping make this one of the best sports scenes that you'll find anywhere. Once you're there in the stands with your fellow Boston sports fans, you'll understand loud and clear what all the excitement is about.

In addition to an amazing theatrical scene, you can always find a great concert as long as you know where to look. And one of the best places that you'll find anywhere is the Orpheum Theatre, though you won't truly appreciate that until you actually make it out and see it for yourself as some of the best acts around come to the stage in front of an energetic crowd that routinely shows up.
