NEIGHBORHOOD/UPTOWN LIVE THEATRE
New Vaudeville House, Garden Theatre Music Hall (Midtown) -- Formerly designed by architect, C. Howard Crane (1912); renovation complete. Once known as the Sassy Cat, the building complex renovation appears to be on solid financial footing, with offices occupying its three floor building space next door fully leased by a medical contractor and a coffee vendor due to rising demand in the thriving Midtown area.
(Vanguard's original $850 million medical community investment and some potential overlap from Henry Ford Hospital's $300 million investments in the New Center area just north are helping to restore the area. The Illitch’s new $650 million hockey and entertainment complex will help join this area to northern Downtown.)
The fully renovated theatre is said to be similar to the Pageant Concert Nightclub. The theatre features a 1,300 seat facility for concerts, events, fundraisers and weddings. Architect McIntosh Poris Assoc. was responsible for the renovation design. The addition of the adjacent 60 new apartments and the newly renovated site of Blue Moon Saloon (1886) into a restaurant, spell success for project owner George Stewart. Several other local programs may owe some of their success to the New York based, “Re-dens-ify” Midtown program a consortium of 22 financial concerns a few years ago. The approved Q-Linelight rail transit cars stop on Woodward near the theatre The complex is close to several other popular venues and stage presenters. For example, Orchestra Hall, The Box, The Majestic Theatre and The Magic Stick Theatre are all within a block or two on Woodward, forming a five-venue Midtown Live Theatre District. The Masonic Theatre is a bit south of this site in Midtown, the Bonstelle to the southeast and the Hilberry to the north.
Sugar Hill Plans: A new theatre of professional African American jazz musicians may soon appear in the Midtown area as part of Sugar Hill developments. It will reprise one of the area's historical functions in the 1920s -- a housing and performing area for traveling musicians. Sugar Hill is a mixed use complex including a 132,000 square foot, 4-story building at John R. and Canfield. An additional Sugar Hill Arts District Building is expected to be built with12,000 square feet, and other commercial developments will rise next to the art center; another 44,000 square feet of buildings is designated residential. One 25,000 square foot, 2-story building will be constructed behind MOCAD. This investment totals roughly $34 million. There will be outdoor performance areas with seating and a sculpture garden. Portions of this program are supported by the MIchigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs.
New McNamara Jazz Theatre: A 3-story jazz theatre with stage by this name may replace the old Arcade Bar near the site of the former Lafayette building, Downtown. An "edible garden" fills the vacant space next door. Detroit... how does your garden grow? More details to come.
The Ren Cen 4 Theatres (Renaissance Center and Environs) is CLOSED: This theatre was composed of four separate screen areas in the usual multi-plex seating arrangement, and featured current film releases. It's was open seven days a week, and located at tower 200 on the second floor of the Renaissance Center. A portion of the theatre is being re-purposed for the construction of a large new Ren Cen atrium and digital display at the Jefferson entrance.
MCTOS Redford Theatre: Owned by Motor City Theatre Organ Society. It’s one of only two in the city, capable of first-run commercial cinema (of which this author is aware). Ordinarily classic films are shown here appropriate to its associations with the movie-house organ tradition. A live Barton Theatre Organ plays before each movie begins but sometimes there is piano accompaniment. Live appearances by celebrities, for example, Butch Patrick who played Eddie Munster have been included to premier a classic film at the theatre. An Elvis impersonator has similarly appeared at the Redford. The theatre was built in 1928 with an interior Japanese cultural motif and has been beautifully restored. During WWII all interior decoration was thoroughly covered over to disguise its Japanese appearance due to conflict with Japan. It’s located on the far west side at 17360 Lahser Rd. on the edge of the Old Redford neighborhood (313-537-2560 redfordtheatre.com.)
The Burton Theatre/Cass City Cinema (?) (status uncertain): This theatre presents foreign films, art films and old chestnuts like Robo Cop in a building that was once a school. There is Seating for 130. Popcorn and soft drinks can be purchased. By all accounts this theatre was done well on the cheap, creating a worthwhile attraction for patrons. Recent movies include, Black Dynamite and Cold Souls. It's located on 3420 Cass Avenue (313- 473-9238 www.burtontheatre.com/diff/.)
Bert's Warehouse Theatre: This small theatre presents films for public and private showings. There is also a Bert's Market Place and several other good places to shop in that location at 2739 Russell Street, east of I-75 near the Fisher frwy. in the sprawling Eastern Market complex. Recent film events include Juicy (an adult film). (313-271-1570 www.bertsentertainment.com.)
√Rec Detroit Zoo 3-D/4-D Theatre (Royal Oak): This new state-of-the-art, 126-seat theatre provides illuminating and engaging family entertainment through 3-D and 4-D special immersion effects. 4-D utilizes the sensations of wind, scents, "back pokers," and "leg ticklers," to stimulate the sense of active participation in the scene unfolding. A recent show includes Wild World Africa featuring everything from elephants to lions. The Detroit Zoo is located at the intersection of 10 Mile Rd. and I-696 at 8450 Woodward in suburban Royal Oak and Huntington Woods. (248-398-0900.)
Henry Ford Museum IMAX Theatre (Dearborn): This IMAX theatre contains a six-story screen with a wrap-around digital sound system, comprising 400 seats. Memorable films include Alice in Wonderland (in 3D); Hubble (3D); Journey to Mecca: In the Footsteps of Ibn Battuta; Lewis & Clark: Great Journey West; The Ultimate Wave Tahiti (3D); Under the Sea (3D); and Legends of Flight (3D). It's located in the Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village at 20900 Oakwood Blvd., Dearborn (313-271-1620 www.thehenryford.org/imax/tickets.aspx.)
Detroit Theatre for The Dramatic Arts: This theatre presents plays by Gray and Gray Productions Inc. It is located at 1001 Brush St., one block southwest of Greektown (313-964-3133,www.detroittheatrefortheddramaticars.com.)
MGM Grand Axis Theatre: This is the live performance entertainment theatre inside the MGM Grand Casino.
New Ford Auditorium-Hart Plaza Amphitheatre: Ford Auditorium at Hart Plaza on the river has been inactive for decades, and was recently demolished. The site may be converted to a 5,000 seat, pavilion amphitheatre similar to Chene Park (also on the river, a mile east). If this site is chosen it will be integrated into a renovated Hart Plaza, which will be transformed into a GREEN, riverfront park. Many of the pavers will be removed, but the sculptures and the fountain will remain. The new amphitheatre will feature top musical performers and concerts during festivals and other celebrations on the river. Refer to Hart Plaza Amphitheatres and Environs on this Page for more details.
The Detroit Institute of Arts Film Theatre: (Arch. C. Howard Crane.) This is a recently renovated 1,200 seat film theatre with an enlarged screen that presents silent films, vintage classics, art films and new, high definition digital releases. (Refer to Museums, Page2.) Museum curator, Eliot Wilhelm hosts the PBS show, Film Festival from the theatre on Fridays. The theatre is one of the most successful programs of its kind. It’s the leader in attendance and ahead of New York in viewing of the short film genre.
The Michigan Palace: (Arch. C. W. and George L. Rapp, 1926.) On 238 Bagley, Downtown Detroit. The 13-story theatre exterior was huge. A ten story blade-style sign proclaimed the theatre's presence, augmented by a still larger rooftop sign, which at 85 x 34 feet was bigger than many buildings itself. An enormous, lengthy marquee greeted visitors at the entrance. It contained a block-long grand lobby, five stories tall with four giant crystal chandeliers weighing 2,500 lbs. each, all designed in the French Renaissance style. The eye-popping details featured expensive paintings from the National Academy, Sevres sculptures, and Empire Suite furniture, decorating an extravagant interior of brass and marble that patrons called a museum.
The immense, ornately designed theatre had 1,981 orchestra seats, 1,488 balcony seats, 224 mezzanine seats, 312 loge seats and 34 box seats (totaling 4,039). The stage was 75 feet x 35 feet, and the screen was 21 feet x 18 feet. One of its attractions was the 5-manual Wurlitzer Pipe Organ, a limited production instrument that put out an amazing sound repertoire and complemented the theatre's expensive touches like carved balustrades, marble staircases, meticulously painted details, and carved plaster ceilings. The theatre closed for the final time as a movie palace in 1970 when its capacious environs could no longer attract the number of patrons to justify its use due to dwindling, post-riot attendance. It later opened as a venue for rock concerts and closed once more in 1977 over rent disputes. It was then gutted and transformed into the world's best decorated parking garage, a tragic anomaly of architecture in use to this day. This, along with the destruction of Rose Terrace ranks as one of the Detroit area’s greatest losses of fine architecture. (Building's physical details from: Detroit's Downtown Movie Palaces, Hauser and Weldon, 2006.)
The City Theatre (Formerly the Hockeytown Theatre or Second City Theatre): The new, City Theatre has an off-Broadway ambiance, and features plays, concerts and comedy shows.

DOWNTOWN LIVE THEATRE
1888.) It has a 200-seat private theatre housed within the mansion's carriage house on Woodward by the DIA on Detroit’s famous Ferry Street. Today it's a portion of a mansion that serves as an office building; the exterior is built in the form of a castle. The former theatre was used as a mock-trial courtroom for a law office until recently.
Detroit's former "Film Palaces" were built for film projection and vaudeville. Quite often stage productions were offered as part of the entertainment package. It was not hard to justify film theatre conversions into opera houses, repertory stages and concert halls. This is exactly what happened in Detroit. In one case, however, the Detroit Film Theatre returned to its media roots. In another, the Wilson Music Hall remained a live performance stage from the start.
Nation's 2nd Largest Collection of Live Theatre Venues
Detroit is often considered the center for the nation's second largest number of live theatres and stage presentations including repertory, concert or vaudeville productions after New York. Cleveland also makes this claim. (Refer to Performing Arts in Detroit -- Wikipedia, one of the places where Detroit's claim is validated.) As the author of this website, I also contend that Detroit is at least tied in one respect for designation as the second largest collection in North America as well.
North America's 2nd Largest Collection of Live Theatre Venues
New York retains the world title, London is in second place and Toronto is often considered third. This would tend to make Toronto number two in North America. But it may not be that simple. Mexico City has enormous performing art venues with seating in the tens of thousands. Since Detroit often includes Windsor in its downtown entertainment sphere, I include theatres from across the river, and there are a great deal more in the Detroit suburbs, which are not cited. Please see the following table. Some unusual film theatre venues are included. (Of course, you might find such comparisons a trivial concern. But in Detroit a city recently in bankruptcy and suffering a long, steep decline, such issues can have relevance.)
√√Rec Fisher Theatre: (Arch. Albert Kahn, 1928.) The Fisher Theatre presents Broadway plays and musicals, and opened with vaudeville and movies in 1928. As part of the Fisher Building, it began its life as an architectural masterpiece built for the Fisher Brothers. This Art Deco gem replaced its flamboyant interior Mayan decor with a mid-century style. Recently modernized once more, the theatre reduced seating to 2,089 to offer more room and comfort to patrons. The Fisher faces the historic, old GM headquarters at Cadillac Place across the street, and has been a favorite Broadway musical venue of suburban and urban Detroiter's for decades. Recent productions include Jersey Boys, Cats, West Side Story and Rock of Ages. It’s well worth a tour of the adjoining building interior which has one of the most exquisite marble interiors. Forty types of marble and other rich materials were used in construction. Refer to the Attractions Page, Architecture Section. The theatre is located at 3011 W. Grand Blvd. # F1 in the New Center area. (313- 872-1000 www.broadwayindetroit.com.)
The Mosaic Youth Theatre: This theatre presents plays and musical performances, touring nationally and internationally. It teaches stagecraft to youth who come mainly from disadvantaged backgrounds to become technicians, actors, dancers and singers. The intent is to train college bound performers for life in the theatre, while demonstrating their success to the outside world. 95% of the students go on to college. Local performances are in the General Motors Mosaic Theatre with a capacity of 1,100 seats. Memorable performances include Singsational, The Gospel at Colonus, Tesserae and Woodward Wonderland. It's located at 610 Antoinette St., 3011 W. Grand Blvd. and 7441 2nd Avenue. (313-872-6910 www.mosaicdetroit.org/.)

Recent performances have included appearances at Orchestra Hall's, the Max, the annual Lenten Concert, Bethel AME Church and the Annual Spring Pops Dinner Concert. It's located at 9000 East Jefferson, Suite # 25-10. (313-331-0378 www.brazealdennard.org/.)
New Center Park, Outdoor Theatre: The New Center has a multipurpose outdoor theatre where festival entertainment and concerts are held.
√Rec Hilberry Theatre: (Arch. Field, Hinchman and Smith, 1916/1917.) One of the mainstays of the Detroit theatre crowd, this is the nation's only university graduate repertory theatre. The theatre, with 3,400 seats, was converted from the First Church of Christ Scientist to an open-stage design. There are 45 to 50 actors and stagecraft specialists who train and work under a staff of professionals. Company members are auditioned from across the country for their positions leading to graduate degrees in each of their fields. Plays are chosen from classic and contemporary sources. Plays have included The Fantasticks, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Seagull, The Servant of Two Masters, Good, Of Mice and Men and The Beaux Strategem. The Theatre is located at 4841 Cass Ave. in the Cultural Center and on the campus of Wayne State University. (313-577-3511 www.hilberry.com/contact.html.)
Studio Theatre (downstairs of Hilberry, Wayne State): This is a Wayne State University theatre that operates below the Hilberry Theatre. Recent plays include Getting Out, Doubt and Rhinoceros. The theatre is located at 4743 Cass Ave. (313-577-2972 firstname.lastname@example.org.)

Max M. Fisher Music Center, “Music Box” Theatre
√√Rec Orchestra Hall: (Arch. C. Howard Crane, 1919.) Orchestra Hall is the home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO). It presents concerts by the DSO during the Fall and Winter, while guest performers appear throughout the year including the Detroit Civic Orchestra. The "acoustically perfect" Hall was built in just five months for Ossip Gabrilowitsch, who demanded the venue when he was offered to conduct an orchestra in 1919. The Hall, with 1,150 seats, is designed in the Renaissance style. It played host to Jazz greats during the Depression as the Paradise Valley Theatre, and restoration was begun in 1970 after a long period of abandonment. In contrast to original construction, restoration lasted decades.
Such luminaries as Antal Dorati, Neemi Jarvi, Peter Oundjian and Paul Paret conducted at the Hall, as well as current director Leonard Slatkin. The Hall features guest conductors and artists. Memorable performances have included Klezmer Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra by Wlad Marhulets, Classical Roots Series, Violin Concerto by jazz pianist Bill Childs, James Gaffigan and Adre Watts with Brahm's Piano Concerto No. 2. Other pieces conducted by Leonard Slatkin include Midori Plays Sibelius Concerto No. 2 and Barber's Adagio, Hydn Symphony No. 67, and works by Mozart and LIzst. But there are numerous others. The 10:45a.m. Coffee Concerts have become very well attended.
There is a full bar, and inexpensive parking is nearby. Tickets are often very reasonably priced with occasional promotions for the younger crowd. Radio station, WRCJ offers live streaming of DSO concerts.
Orchestra Hall is located in the Midtown Museum District at 3711 Woodward. (The DSO spends much of the summer at suburban Meadow Brook Music Festival Amphitheatre, if not on tour. It also appears at the fabulous Christ Church near Cranbrook.) (313-576-5111 www.detroitsymphony.com .)
√Rec Ecumenical Theological Seminary (ETS) Sanctuary: The site of exceptional performances by classical artists in lower Midtown, it provides an often overlooked source of entertainment to Detroiters at 2930 Woodward. (313-831-5200 www.ETSeminary.org.)
√Rec Magic Stick (Theatre): (1992.) Also part of the Majestic Theatre Center, it presents live concerts from one of the two stages with a dance floor. It was built over the bowling lanes in 1992 and is often considered one of Detroit's top attractions for music performance. This theatre responds to demand in the area with a mix of music entertainment. The stages have good lighting and sound systems and were upgraded in 2000. This venue hosts popular folk and bluegrass performers who appear at the Wayfarer Roots & Bluegrass Festival at both stages. Also appearing are AMC2010 Music Showcase, and Friendo, among others. The Magic Stick is located at 4120 Woodward at the same Majestic Theatre Center complex. (313-833-9700 majesticdetroit.com/magic-stick.)
The Madison: (Arch. C. Howard Crane, 1917, the first venue of the new theatre district at the time.) This theatre was built in the neoclassical style and was located at 22 Witherell (Woodward) next to the Madison Building across from Grand Circus Park. It had 1,999 seats. Only its marquee remained (proclaiming “A Tailgate Party For All” during the 2006 Super Bowl) until recently -- at the exterior of the Madison Building. The theatre was demolished in 2001. Ironically money was found to renovate both the Broderick Tower and Madison Building, which flanked each side of it. At least one of these renovation projects is potentially more expensive than the theatre's restoration might have been. The large frieze of the Dancing Maidens was removed from the Madison and re-located to the Eureka Lofts on Broadway before demolition.
Hart Plaza Amphitheatres and Environs (A new 5,000 seat pavilion amphitheatre is on the way. It will either be built in this general location or on the RiverWalk by the old Uniroyal Tire site.): Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit includes a collection of stages and outdoor park amenities on a large granite paved promenade. Its three stages have provided concert entertainment venues during the many summer festivals, like the hip Detroit International Jazz Festival, the increasingly popular Techno “Movement” Festival, the ever-expanding Hoe Down Festival (held by Comerica Park 2012), the exotic Arab and Chaldean World Festival, the tasty Ribs and Souls Festival, the eclectic African World Festival and the rousing Detroit River Days. The Hoe Down Festival recently moved to the new West Riverfront Park. Hart Plaza hosts many other events as a consequence of being close to the Cobo Convention Center and its location Downtown at the popular RiverWalk. The largest amphitheatre doubled as a skating rink in the winter and provided below-level concession space for barbecuing and other food stands. (Skating now occurs at the newer Campus Martius location in central Downtown. The greater portion of this space has become an art gallery.) The surface level includes the Dodge Fountain, a tall sculptural spire, a sculptural ring, and statues of Underground Railroad travelers. These all overlook the river and will soon be part of an extensive “Green” renovation program. Ford Auditorium, long vacant next to the site, has been demolished and the location may be transformed into a large-scale, tent-covered amphitheatre (with 5,000 seats) adjoining the Plaza. The new “Green” plaza makeover will replace the worn out promenade and pavers. Hart Plaza is located next to the RiverWalk between the Renaissance Center and the Veteran's Memorial, behind the new Port Detroit Great Lakes Cruise Ship Terminal where the first Great Lakes cruise ship stopped in 2011. The Detroit Princess riverboat currently docks a short distance west of this site (available summer and winter). The new M-1 (Q-Line) light rail’s first station will be located a block north at Larned. The Renaissance Center People Mover station is located at the north side of the Ren Cen complex nearby. Another is located at the Cobo Center nearby. (313-877-8077.)
