The fox theater is a great venue for music - good acoustics. The updated Art Deco theater is eye candy- attention to detail and lovely colors- you can picture it in the 30’s!

A wonderful place to see a concert or a production. Not a bad seat in the room. You can see as well from the balcony as you can from the front row.

We have been to a lot of concerts at The FOX and they were all amazing as the sound is great. They also rent it out for other venues.
