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!

Not only are performances here amazing, but the tours are also quite fun! The place is packed with history, which makes seeing a show there that much more magical once you know the background. With grand staircases, bathrooms, and stage, you're sure to feel like a million bucks when you attend.

Theater is wonderful. I've been to countless theaters, and this one is a like an awesome step back in time. The only negative to me is the lack of restroom facilities. Been here a few times, and its a bad restroom situation...even for an old theater. Still, beautiful building with excellent acoustics.

I have been visiting the Fox since elementary school. It is a beautiful venue, and a wonderful place to watch your favorite play or musical.

I have been on the tour twice and both times it was a delight to learn about the building's complicated history and remarkable architecture. The story in and of itself would make a good movie, but the opulence makes it so worth talking the time to go. If you can get a tour that includes backstage, you will really thank... More

We saw Chris Stapleton at the Fox. Great music, great theatre. Very pricey for drinks however. Take the time to look around.

The Fox is a St Louis treasure. The interior architecture is stunning. We have been there many times and there isn't a bad seat in the house. The only drawback is the parking which can be a challenge at times.

This place is just beautiful! A very historic landmark in the city of St. Louis. The shows are wonderful and you have the bonus of experiencing the Siamese Byzantine architecture style, as well. Don't forget to visit their little museum inside. It's full of the history of those shows and performers who came before. Lots of famous people! Also, there's... More

I have been to many shows at the fox but I just decided to write a review on them. I should have done this many years ago.
