This is a great venue, we had seats toward the back of the main floor and could see and hear Jon Oliver perfectly. The seats are a bit tight if you have a big guy next to you like I did but otherwise comfy enough. The staff is pretty efficient in showing you to your seats. Getting inside took a... More

I saw John Oliver on 12/30/16 and was sitting on the floor in the orchestra section. I had a great experience my first time here. I think the theatre is beautiful and I was so enamored by the architecture and decorations that I didn't mind waiting for the show to start. Ushers were very quick. There are concessions, beer, wine,... More

We saw John Oliver at the Fox on NYE. The venue is beautiful. There doesn't seem to be a bad seat. The ushers were great getting us seated.

This venue is so gorgeous. I have been visiting the Fox since I was a kid. It is beautiful and perfect for a special night out. It is great to get dressed up and see a show. Our most recent was John Oliver on New Years Eve! Such a great time. No seat is a bad seat! Love the Fox!

This theatre is a little over the top...or a lot, but it's beautiful. I really like how they have tigers all over. There's so much history here as well! We saw John Oliver yesterday and there's not really a bad seat in the whole place. I would definitely go back again for another show.

Saw John Oliver last night (12/20/2016) Couldn't understand anything for first 20 minutes due to reverb and echo. People left seats to complain. Finally someone shouted WE CAN'T HEAR YOU; John Oliver from the stage asked someone in the house and they fixed it. Don't they do sound checks? Doesn't the House pay someone to be responsible to see that... More

The Fox is beautiful at Christmas. Great photo ops. The play was great as well. Souvenirs are moderately priced. Concessions are a decent price as well.

The building and its ornate interior are an exquisite mixture of Egyptian and South Asian styles. It is an amazing venue. The lobby opens 1.5 hours before curtain, but the seating area didn't open until 30 minutes prior to curtain. The ushers were all present an hour prior, but did not allow entry as they all stood around uselessly. Open... More
