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!

We have never seen a bad show there! They usually have actors from Broadway in NY, and you can tell. The setup is great, acting great, and the atmosphere is just wonderful... You feel like you are in another time.

I've been to The Fox numerous times over the years and have never had a bad time there. I recently attended a Christmas program (The hip hop Nut-Cracker) with my 5 year old daughter and her friends and they had a blast.

Grand old theater, built in 1929 in the Siamese-Byzantine style, it was renovated around 1980. It is a beautiful theater~ There are 200 or so events annually there...fabulous shows and musical events. Parking is plentiful. As in any big city, be aware of your surroundings, especially walking about at night. Good policing/security in the area around show times.

Love the Fox! I've had the Broadway tickets for 3 years and have enjoyed every show. We can buy extra shows for a good price and still sit in our seats. The building is beautiful and all seats are good.

Took my wife to see Something Rotten and we had the best time. This place is breathtaking and the show had us laughing the entire time. We loved it and will return again. We dream of seeing the Phantom at this location. We had shrimp at their restaurant called Curtain call before the show and it was also outstanding.

The beauty from the moment you walk in the door of this nearly century old theater just takes your breath away. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and helpful.

This is the nicest theatre I have ever been to. It is absolutely breathtaking. You really feel like you have stepped back in time to when people cared about details and architecture. It's very large and there is not a bad seat in the house.

We have season tickets and it has been a wonderful Broadway series! We enjoyed each show. Our favorite was American In Paris. We also enjoy eating at the Fox Lounge before each show. The Fox is fabulous!

We went to see An American in Paris on a Sunday afternoon. While I wasn't crazy about the play itself, I was in awe the entire time in the Fox. Parking, while a little costly ($15), was close by and seemed plentiful. I highly recommend getting there early so you can walk around and see the Peacock gallery and the... More
