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.
