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...

I've been to this theatre 5 times, and the most recent time was to see Jackie Evancho. The other shows were 2 concerts of "Radio City Christmas Spectacular," a "Sesame Street Live performance, and an Il Volo concert!

Buying tickets from the fox theatre is not worth it...especially when they are not giving you the best seats available and your paying your had earned money for good seats... Hello ticketmaster!!!

Walking into this place is like walking into a dream. Gorgeous architecture and stunning renovations. I was there for a music concert but was more taken away and impressed by the building. Jaw dropping interior beauty. Intricate sculptures built into the walls and ceiling. Truly meditative and almost spiritual art deco. During the concert there was lots of booze for... More

We went to see a concert. The venue is so lovely. The concert was great, but I could just sit and look at this building. So very, very well restored. They have a lot of staff to help you find your seat. I don't like the fact that you can purchase food and drinks to eat in the seats, it... More

The good: Breathtaking theater and the performance of the Russian Ballet The Nutcracker was absolutely spectacular and really added to our Christmas holiday. We sat in the Mezzanine balcony and it was great to have a bar and bathroom right there. Great view of the stage below. Much better seats than the main floor and less expensive. Now the bad:...

You must get to the theater AT LEAST 30 minutes early due to long, poorly organized, and cold lines to get into the building and through security. I learned this the hard way the last time I saw a show at the Fox and so got there very early today for the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker (disappointing show). Long... More

One of the best places to see a concert or performance. Great acoustics in a gorgeous building. May be one of the best in the country. Have seen a handful of concerts here and have enjoyed it every time. Worth a stop even if just to see it. Ideally, you could catch a great musician here. Bigger on the inside... More

We were at the front door at 7:15pm for an 8:00pm show Saturday Dec. 13, 2014. The featured star was Terry Fator. His show was terrific. The theatre service was terrible. We finally got seated at 8:15pm and the show was already started. We were seated in the 3rd row from the stage in the most uncomfortable seats I have... More
