Venue Details

Though the Fisher Building stands as an iconic landmark in the city of Detroit, it also holds the city's premier venue for Broadway theater. Sitting on the ground floor of the Fisher Building sits the Fisher Theatre which is celebrating its 50th year entertaining Detroit audiences with a schedule full of touring Broadway shows, as well as the occasional premiere. The theatre's grandiose design and decor give audiences a classic theatre experience usually only reserved for opera houses and symphony halls, and provides a night of excellent that guests won't soon forget.

Constructed in 1928, the Fisher Theatre originally served as a cinema/vaudeville theater with an Aztec theme that featured banana trees, authentic Mexican art, and loose macaws that customers could hand feed. The motif was done away with in favor of a more classic, elegant design after renovations converted the movie house into a playhouse in 1961. The production schedule at the Fisher Theatre has featured a slew of stars and included the world premieres of Hello, Dolly!, Golden Boy, and Fiddler on the Roof. The Fisher Theatre continues to present hit Broadway plays as soon as they set out on tour, as well as independent productions and performers like the Blue Man Group.

If the Fisher Theatre's schedule full of hit, entertaining theatrical productions isn't enough, one step inside this gorgeous theater will convince audience members to make it their home for theater in Detroit.
