I've been here many times over the years for children's shows, concerts, comedy shows, and more. I saw Janet Jackson here a few years ago, and most recently I saw The Moscow Ballet's version of The Nutcracker. It's a beautiful historic theater, one of my favorites in Downtown Detroit. It is centrally located very close to Comerica Park and HockeyTown... More

My wife and I saw Stomp this past weekend at the Fox Theatre in Detroit. We had amazing seats, 2nd row, orchestra pit, almost too close. I had to dodge some water a couple of times. What an amazing show! I HIGHLY recommend this show to anyone if you have a chance to see it. The Fox Theatre is such... More

Fox Theater was an easy in and out and it was a great show for the kids too. We had a fun time. Drinks are not cheap. The architecture in the Fox is amazing. The sound system is incredible too.

This review was truly amazing. A variety of acts, great for children "of any age" that love acrobatics. Although I'm generally not fond of the Circus this was a great holiday outing with the kids. They loved it. Trapeze artists, fast clothing change illusionists....truly perplexing.....how do they change in a split second? The singing was very good and it was... More

Beautiful building kept up the way Detroit should be. Top name acts still have a place to perform in the city. Walking distance to many other attractions.

One of the most beautiful theaters in Detroit. The Fox attracts some big name acts/shows but regardless of what is showing the Theater is worth a visit, and the Comerica Ballpark is right across the street.

If you want to see beautiful architecture, some great entertainment and a historical landmark in Detroit, come to the Fox Theater. From the beautiful renovated statues and gold and colorful ceilings and walls to the magnificent staircase, you must come to the Fox Theater. The doormen are dressed in red and black uniforms as they open the doors for you.... More

I have attended concerts and plays at the Fox and the acoustics are amoung the best I have ever heard. The theater is an ornate classic and a joy to experience. If you have the opportunity to attend an event here, arrive a little early to take in the awesome details of the building.

My boyfriend and I attended a play at the Fox theater. I was taken-aback by its beauty, and the elegant touches of the theater. The Fox theater demands you present yourself with grace and class. The staff is well-dressed and knowledgeable. The production of the plays, the orchestra, the beauty of the theater and the talented actors are simply outstanding.... More

Simple, this has to be one of the nicest or prettiest or coolest venues in Detroit. I think I spent more time looking at the building than I did the show that might wife wanted me to take her to:)
