Omaha Performing Arts brings world-class entertainment to its two distinct but complementary venues. Built in 1927 as a vaudeville palace, the fully remodeled Orpheum Theater evokes the gilded concert halls of Europe with magnificent chandeliers; gracefully vaulted ceilings; and intricate, decorative metalwork. The newly built Holland Performing Arts Center surrounds the action with modernist elegance, featuring clean, geometric lines and a lobby with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The main Peter Kiewit Concert Hall's gently curving shoebox design ensures clear sightlines and comfortable feet, and organically placed wooden panels sharpen the acoustics and bestow the space with a warm glow.
Since 1995, Pizza Shoppe Collective guests haven't had to rely only on their food to feel good. That?s because the restaurant features a second identity as a space for local artists and non-profits, fostering a unique, artistic, and communal feel that pervades the stage and connected restaurant. Before catching a show or event, clients can split one of the house?s signature pizzas loaded with fresh ingredients on their in-house crust. Outside of pizzas, the chefs incorporate a full menu of sizzling oven-toasted subs, traditional pastas, and an expansive wine and beer list that offers the perfect pairing.
