Overview

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!

One of the top concert and show venues in the St Louis area. Always clean with professional staff. Mezzanine seats are the best bang for your buck.

The property itself is a real treat just to see. Seats are a bit close, zero leg room. Productions was incrediable, really first class

We attended a matinee of Disney's The Lion King at this theatre, and were charmed by the outside façade. It looked like one of those grand theatres from the Golden Age. I thought it had probably been modernized and refurbished on the inside but I...More

Great theater for Broadway type shows. The theater is decorated with beautiful architecture that is not seen in new buildings anymore. Amazing that this type of detail was done in the past.

We love to see shows at the Fox! It is such a grand and elegant venue. We recently went to see Dirty Dancing. They always have such great shows.

I think if someone is over 300 pounds, they would be uncomfortable. However, there are areas in the balcony seated at tables and other special seating available that might be a bit more comfortable.
