The most well preserved beautiful building. Takes you back in time. Most recent show I saw there was We Will Rock You with music by Queen. Fantastic play/concert. It's a play but with all the great music a concert as well. It was a matinee and there were many senior citizens there. I assumed they might be season ticket holders... More

This theatre is just the right size, not overwhelming like some theatres can be. Well keep and friendly, helpful staff.

If you want to be Wowed, attend a performance at the Fox Theatre. Lovely byzantine décor. Not a bad seat in the house.

What a theatre! Regardless of the show you see, the theatre itself is an amazing experience unto itself. I was amazed at the décor; the restoration has been amazing and the attention to detail brings you back to its heyday 80+ years ago. Not a bad seat in the house. I chose the cheap seats: the sound was great, as... More

We subscribe to the Broadway Series so attend quite often. The place is great. We can always tell the new visitors by their mouths hanging open as the scan the lobby. We used to come early for dinner at their Grand Buffet but I heard they'd cancelled that. Too bad. We do, however, get there in time for a glass... More

I love seeing shows at the Fox. I've seen lots of Broadway series and off Broadway shows here over the years and it never disappoints. The interior decor is always breathtaking, the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly, and the seats are actually relatively comfortable. I've never had issues with sound, lighting, or seeing the show except for when I'm... More

I love going to shows and comedy acts here. It has such great history and is just a gorgeous place to be. You can dress up and go out afterwards, or come casual and still fit in. The sound in the place is great, you can hear from any seat in the house!

This place is huge, perfect to watch anything and just try to walk further than 10 feet inside without finding yourself stopping and staring at the ceiling. Amazing.

Loved the production of We Will Rock You. We had seen it in Toronto back in '07 and there were some changes to it that really worked. The show had been tightened up and two new songs/song segments added. Had Mezzanine tickets so able to view entire stage easily.

Love going to the Fabulous Fox Theatre. There is no place like it. The sound is good. The productions at the Fox are very extravagant b/c they have the space. It's a large theatre so you need to be careful what seats you pick. I like lower balcony the best, or front row. It's also a great place for concerts... More
