The Fisher Theatre has hosted some of Broadway’s biggest productions, and many of the world’s most beloved musicals have premiered there. The theater, which opened as a movie and vaudeville house in 1928, was remodeled in 1961. It is in the Fisher Building, a National Historic Landmark revered for its Art Deco design.
Detroit Opera House
Opened in 1922 as the Capitol Theater, the Detroit Opera House was believed at the time to be the fifth-largest theater in the world. Following a series of name changes and a tumultuous history, which included several years of decay and a small fire, the Detroit Opera House today is a destination for some of the world’s best opera and dance performances.
Built in 1928 for Fox Films, the Fox Theatre over the years has hosted vaudeville, stage productions, organ concerts, and movies. But the theater began to decline in the 1960s and ‘70s, and after a $12 million renovation, it reopened in 1988 and was soon designated a National Historic Landmark. Today, the theater is home to a variety of plays, concerts, and other special events.
