This is one of the best theatres in the US. The style and decor is incredible. We enjoyed the matinee production of Rudolph on Dec 3. Easy parking across the street. Located in the hub of sports and arts. Would love to come back for a tour of the theatre.

Several years ago the Fox Theatre was refurbished and all Detroit was excited. This was my first time going to the Fox in more than a decade and while I loved the design and acoustics, I was extremely disappointed in the upkeep and cleanliness. The seats need to be cleaned, badly, the floor was sticky and covered with popcorn where... More

The Fox Theatre is one of the most beautiful, historic venues in Detroit, Michigan. They present first class entertainment. Seating on the first row of the mezzanine is outstanding as there is more leg room available.

We love going to the Fox Theatre for concerts or the different musicals they have there. The Fox is very gorgeous inside. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The only bad thing is the prices of the amenities are extremely overpriced. Especially if you have to pay a lot for a ticket, $4 for soda is a little ridiculous.

I went to see Il Divo in concert there this past Sunday 10/16 and this place was a marvel. The high ceilings and the craftmanship that has gone into this place.. I would love to come back to take the tour. Truly amazing..
