The Fabulous Fox Theatre first opened in 1929 as a movie palace in William Fox's motion picture empire. The theatre was reopened in 1982, and today it is one of the most exquisite venues in the country to enjoy live touring Broadway shows, concerts, and comedians. We hope you'll visit us for an upcoming show or one of our guided tours!

We have had tickets to the Broadway Series for more than 30 years. This theater is one of the remaining 'Siamese Byzantine' theaters. It's huge and just looking around at all the motifs will keep you busy until the performance begins. We don't always love the shows, but always enjoy being in the theater.

This theater is intricate and a must see. The volunteer staff make it run smoothly. Shows are always great here. There is always a bit of a walk from the parking lot.

One can spend an hour trying to take in every image in the lobby alone. This beautifully restored movie palace is now a major venue for Broadway musicals and large concerts. The decor is amazing. The rogan comes up from the floor and fills the gigantic auditorium. This is a trip in itself.

I think this theater is AMAZING! It was restored in the early 80's and returned it to a thing of beauty. I know they have since done more work to keep it current. I can not tell you how many shows I have seen in this theater and I have taken the tour thats available. it recounts a fabulous history.... More

This is the place to visit! 1.5 hours of wonderful, old-world charm and elegance. When you walk in, you are immediately hit with nostalgic opulence of days far past. The detail is phenomenal, and you'll see performers pics ranging from Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller to Phyllis Diller to current stars. Also, they'll take you to the dressing rooms for... More

Every time I go to the Fox, I'm in awe of its beauty but it's also my favorite St. Louis venue to view anything & they host rock concerts to concertos & live theater of all sorts. It's not so large as to feel like a mere ant & the sound system is great so perfect for concerts. It's got... More

The acoustics are great you can hear a person in the last row from any place on the main stage; the management and ownership has done wonders improving the interior and exterior of this magnificent theater; the productions are first class; take a tour of the Fox and it will show you some wonderful history of the Grand Theater.
