The theatre was closed but the building is extraordinary an example of art deco and Detroit in it's heyday... no expense spared in the decoration and detailing: Don't miss it.

The architecture will bring you back to another time. Very historic, from Detroit's glory days when the car was king.

Absolutely gorgeous theater and a great place to take in a good Broadway show. Definitely a piece of Detroit history.

The Fisher Building provided the gilt for Detroit's gilded age. Once part of the GM complex of office buildings, it now seems remote and almost abandoned. Nevertheless, it still reeks of the opulance that is a long-lost part of Detroit's history. The ceilings and floors in the lobby are magnificent, and even the light sonces in the restrooms were impressive.... More

Nice place to go and watch a performance. Big and convenience hall, comfortable chairs and two parking lots close to the entrance. Only half of the theater is opened for people, so pay attention and go with the people flow directly to the main hall

Great show, good seats 7 good attendants to help you navigate around. Glad parking is part of the ticket fee, works much better for getting in. Bought the Broadway in Detroit series, can't wait to see those upcoming musicals.

The Fisher Theater is a very good venue to experience a Broadway play or musical in Detroit. The theater is intimate and the acoustics are quite good. The staff members are helpful and friendly. The Fisher building that houses the theater is remarkable and a great example of early twentieth century Art Deco style architecture. The lobby is ornate and... More

Love the theater...been there several times. Were able to sit in the front row and converse with the orchestra. They work really hard. The show was really good....disappointed that they didn't sing the same songs that were in the movie, but it was a good show otherwise. Ate at the spotlight lounge before the show...very good food...then was able to... More

We worked in the Fisher building for 20 year. We love this theater. There are no bad seats and the productions are consistently excellent. Staff is super friendly and helpful. There are several different parking options and we feel safe with any of them. Fisher has their own security team. Vendors are open before theater 6 days a week. This... More

The theatre was very nice with ushers to guide you along the way to your seat. Refreshments were available on every level, which was nice at intermission. Seats were comfortable and clean with enough room where you didn't feel crowded by those around you.
