Great house, offers up everything from operas, ballet, Broadway to school graduations. About 2700 seats, almost all are good.

I've been here a few times. Concerts and plays. It is beautiful, the sound is great. I wish they would book more rock concerts here, i would go all the time.

I have been to many performances here and they have all been wonderful! Ushers are kind, professional, and gracious. Operas, Broadway musicals, and dance events are breathtaking with the lighting and orchestra. Arrive early for downtown Detroit parking.

The venue is absolutely beautiful. Lovely chandeliers and decor. Seats were less than comfortable though. They are very small and i am not a large person, but it is hard to cross your legs while sitting in the seat. Lion King was awesome!

I'm looking to buy tickets to The Nutcracker and we have 3 children. Will they be able see over the railing if we are in the front row of the Trustee Circle Level 4? What is the difference in the Levels ? Also the seats are almost on the end (all we can afford!) Is the view ok? Thanks!

How old are the children and his tall? Usually the view from the higher levels are good but it will depend on the ages and height of your children if they will be able to see over the rails or not.
