Fisher Theatre, Detroit

4.5
Broadway In Detroit’s beginnings herald back to 1912 when David Tobias (D.T) Nederlander began operating the original Detroit Opera House with the Shubert Brothers. Through the years, the Nederlander family operated several Detroit area theatres including the Shubert Theatre, the Cass Theatre and the Riviera. It was the Fisher Theatre’s 1961 renovation into a legitimate Broadway house that brought the Nederlanders their greatest audiences, rocketing the Fisher’s subscription base into the largest in the country at the time. Over the past 50 years the Nederlander organization has gone on to become one of the biggest names on Broadway, at one time controlling nine Broadway theatres with operations across the US, Canada and Great Britain.

Under the Nederlander organization, Broadway In Detroit continues to present the best Broadway productions at the Fisher Theatre and other Detroit area venues including the Detroit Opera House. Past productions have featured Broadway’s biggest names such as Carol Channing, Zero Mostel, Robin Givens, Richard Chamberlain, Molly Ringwald, John O’Hurley and more. The Fisher Theatre has hosted the world tour premieres of such Broadway hits as Hello Dolly!, Fiddler On The Roof and Sweet Charity as well as the launch of many national tours including Billy Joel’s Movin Out and the recent West Side Story revival.

Broadway In Detroit is committed to bringing Detroit the hottest Broadway productions and performances at the Fisher Theatre, the Detroit Opera House and more.

  • Beautiful building. I don't think there is a bad seat in the theatre but a distinct lack of washrooms leads to lineups and delays getting back into the theatre. Difficult when there is only a 15 minute intermission
  • So the production the play that went wrong at the Fisher Theater this weekend. It was a very funny farcical comedy. The theater was very nice the seats were comfortable the sound system was good and we could hear all the dialogue. Ticket taking and ushers taking you to your seats was very efficiently handled. Overall it was a very nice evening activity.
