BEAUTIFULLY restored theater! The only disappointment (and it is a biggie) we had for a recent concert was that, with the assigned seating we had in the front rows, we were unable to see the performers because of the crowd hanging out, dancing and taking of selfies with the performance going on behind them on the stage. The volunteer ushers... More

We went to an Asleep at the Wheel & Mavericks concert. The theater is beautiful. Unfortunately, the crowd was unruly & the security had trouble taming them. Lots of people left the concert early due to this & it ruined the experience.

We were in town for a concert at the Historic Fox theatre, what a treat! We saw 2 amazing groups, Asleep at the Wheel and The Mavericks. As both these groups are truly filled with MUSICIANS, (not just synthesized) the acoustics of this old theatre were great! I would highly recommend seeing a show here. The refurbishments are top notch!... More

We went to see "Asleep at the Wheel" and the "Mavericks". It was a great show marred by absolutely juvenile behaviour from the crowd. People were so drunk they threw up on the floor. The Mavericks actually left the stage because a fight broke out. Come on idiots, this is 2016 and you aren't teenagers. Learn to behave - you... More

This historic theater has been beautifully remodeled and refurbished. It is a relatively small venue with very comfortable seating. The acoustics are amazing. This is a great place for concerts and other musical productions.

This theater has been brought back to it's original state. The acoustics are amazing and the beautiful renovation is quite extraordinary. It's worth going to a venue here just to see the theater walls and ceiling.

I have been going to the Fox Theater since I was a child. It has never been more beautiful than it is now and I'm so happy we may all still attend and enjoy performances here.
