This venue has many features from the early 1900's when it was built. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The acoustics for sound are amazingly good for a venue of this age. Well maintained and clean. Very elegant and nostalgic. Enjoy the architecture...More

Absolutely a place to see. The family that restored the place did a first class job. This family loves Detriot & it shows in the work they do. Highly recommend this place for any show that is there. You will be impressed

Went to see Bill Maher at the FOX THEATRE in downtown Detroit and was delighted to see a much maligned city so dynamic in its inner city core. But I was totally blown away when we went into the Fox. What a truly beautiful theatre....More

The show you see is just a bonus. Be sure to be looking left, right, up and down as you get to and from your seat! There are beautiful details everywhere!

I think if someone is there they would allow it. I hope you have the chance, it's truly beautiful architecture! 😀
I'm trying to get tickets to Hamilton which is obviously not an easy task. Where is a good place to sit, where i am able to see the stage well that is still affordable?

I sat in the back, almost to the door. It was not a great spot. Balcony might be best.
I will be seeing Bill Maher from orchestra pit 5 row 3, tickets 503, 504. Will we be able to see him very well if he stands center stage? How many yards approx. is that? 30 yards?
