    Fantastic choice of performers. This venue mixes it up on a regular basis from theater to concerts to comedy acts, one of the most historic buildings in Detroit worth the visit!

    The Fox theater is one of the most spectacular places to visit that remains from old Detroit. Many Americans are unaware that Detroit was the Paris of America. When the auto industry died, so did it.

    Last we went, John Oliver was doing a comedy act. My father and I receded only 30 feet away, one of the greatest things about this theater, is that all seating is quality.

    If you have ADD you'll have lots to be distracted by during your show. It's ornate in an old world way, so you'll never see it all!
