We had the opportunity to see Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story on Stage. The cast was excellent. The set design helped to bring the story even more alive. We sat in the lower balcony - third row. Could see everything. Based on conversations with others during intermission, not a bad seat in the house. The theatre staff (and volunteers)... More

This is a great and beautiful theater. It is located in the very historic Fisher Building, which all by itself is worth a visit. This building and theater reflect what Detroit was and hopefully will have again some day. Comfortable seats, good sight lines and large bathrooms.

I've been going to the Fisher Theatre for many years. There's no bad seat and the sound is excellent. The last time I was there was in April of this year. I'd bought tickets for my kids to see Blue Man Group. Once I'd seen they'd gone inside I went to Stella International Coffee in the lobby of the Fisher... More

Again, I am from Toronto, where the sound is fantastic. This theatre, although beautiful, leaves something to be desired in the sound arena.

Theater was excellent. There is a small coffee shop/snack bar but that's about it in the area. Eat before you come.

Saw Pippin there on a Friday night. The acoustics were great, the lighting was wonderful and although we were in the balcony a view was fine. Parking is next door and that night it was free! The staff was very friendly and happy to serve. Plenty of volunteers to guide you to your seat. Several small beverage bars are available... More

We had not been to the Fisher in quite a while. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to see Pippin Sunday evening. We sat in the Loge and felt good about the seat location and the pricing for the seats. We also felt that the seats were about as comfortable as we have encountered in other theaters in other cities, including... More

The Fisher is a wonderful venue to see a show; comfortable seats with good sight-lines from most any location in the Theatre (large, with over 2,000 seats.) Although parking is adjacent to the Theatre, and included in the price of the ticket, we were "held hostage" after the Show; every exit was closed, so cars had to leave via the... More

I love to see live theater in Detroit, but the Fisher has such uncomfortable seats. I feel like I'm wedged in like a sardine and it's always hot there. The ushers are generally rude and bossy but we have learned to arrive 20 minutes before curtain to avoid the worst of the waiting around.

Avoiding individual show reviews, this venue is excellent when it comes to a small house. Barely over 2000 seats it was a bit of a trip back in time. Dated but well maintained it took me back to my childhood. I scoped out several areas and the stage was easy to see from any location. The best were the first... More
