We were fortunate to attend a performance of the Broadway Touring Company production of "Memphis" here. Yes, the show was great, but . . . this theater is something that needs to be experienced. Thank heavens there are folks with sufficient means to preserve this kind of architectural art. It is a masterpiece. This is a perfect example of a... More

The Fox is extravagant. Going to the Fox Theater is an event, regardless of the show you're seeing. Prepare to be in awe at the ornateness and attention-to-detail that went into this theater's construction

We attended a concert of a rock legend this month and the theater ended up being the star attraction. The Fox is a masterpiece that has been restored to its past beauty. It has to be seen to be appreciated. The staff were fabulous and professional and should be proud to be a part of this place. The Fox is... More

This was about my third time at the Fox. Always walking in, I am amazed at the old-fashioned beauty and elegance. Everyone was efficient and friendly, but I must mention the ushers. Several were older gentlemen that truly went out of their way to make you feel welcome and special. They were extremely helpful helping some older patrons who had... More

For being a lifetime Detroiter it sure took me a long time to see the Fox theater. Finally went to a concert here and was very pleased at the sound quality, seating and facility.It may be better suited for plays or stage shows but handled the concert well. My only complaint is the concessions were limited and of course expensive.... More

Came to see Joe Bonamassa, but was blown away by the theater! It's stunning, and beautifully restored, a mixture of a temple and palace from the Arabian Nights! The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the performance was fantastic. An amazing night!

This historic theater showcases the grandeur of Detroit's glory days with a jaw-dropping feast for the eyes as soon as you walk in and even more so in the auditorium. The halls, bathrooms, stairs, and old theater seats are like a charming step back in the Roaring 20's. Keep in mind that metal detectors and security staff with scanners are... More

Absolutely loved the Theater. The staff was very nice, informative & efficient. I will take a moment to say - what happened to manners & class? We were seated in our seats 20 minutes before showtime & dressed appropriately- when did it become acceptable to show up 1-30 minutes late in baggy jeans, hootchie dresses & stampede people who are...
