What's Playing At The Orpheum Theatre In San Francisco

The 2,200-seat Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco was designed by architect B. Marcus Priteca for wealthy owner Alexandre Pantages. At the time, it was an important San Francisco venue for vaudeville, silent picture shows, and musical comedy. Today the large space is used for big Broadway theatrical productions like Wicked, Matilda the Musical, Mama Mia, The Lion King, and this year, Hamilton.

The current co-owner of the Orpheum Theatre, Robert Nederlander, owns 30 or more entertainment venues in the USA. His group, SHN, also owns the Golden Gate Theatre and the Curran Theatre in San Francisco.
