12. Phoenix: Orpheum Theatre
This 1920s Arizona theatre was built in a Spanish Baroque style with intricate murals to give patrons the impression that they were enjoying the shows 'al fresco'. After a 12-year, $14 million restoration, the Orpheum reopened in 1997. The jewel of downtown Phoenix, the historic Orpheum Theatre now provides an eclectic mix of live music, comedy, theatre, dance and national touring acts.
