Saw Flight of the Conchords there and found the "dinner suite" option on stub hub. It wasn't much more expensive, but I couldn't find out much about it until I checked on tripdavisor.

The Fox Theater has been renovated and is absolutely beautiful. The acoustics are top rate. It is not considered small, but it is very intimate. A great venue for concerts, plays, Sesame Street Live, and anything worth seeing.

We went there to see Tony Bennett. ( He was great!) For pure extravagance the theatre is absolutely gorgeous. All the seats appeared to have a great view and sound quality. The staff were very helpful in directing people also. I guess the only negatives were they now have metal detectors at every door which when you are entertaining a... More

We'd not been to the Fox Theatre in many years and were invited to attend the Tony Bennett show. We were part of a Suite that was exceptional. A buffet dinner was available with good buffet type food. The suite was very comfortable and made the show extra special. This theatre is restored to it's original condition and an incredible...

I hadn't been to the Fox in many years and had the pleasure of watching Riverdance here. The theatre has been very well maintained and has kept all of it's old and unique features intact, while appearing as if it is as new ad the day it was opened. We had mezzanine seats, which afforded us the perfect view of... More

We saw Beck perform here last year and it was an incredible experience. Spur of the moment decision to see the show in Detroit instead of nearby Toronto, but the gods smiled on us for making the trip. The architecture and acoustics in this theatre are second to none and we have since subscribed to their performance schedule. Great neighbourhood... More
