|About these ratings|
The Egyptian-theme Fox Theatre is home to the Atlanta Opera and the Atlanta Ballet, but Broadway musicals and different bands also take the stage here. According to the theater's website, the Fox hosts more than 300 performances a year. If you choose to reserve a seat (there are nearly 5,000), you'll also enjoy a feast for the eyes, covering the walls and ceiling: Brilliant colors, a dynamic ceiling—complete with moving clouds and stars—and numerous architectural flourishes await you.
To see the theater in its full glory, you should see a performance. According to one TripAdvisor user, "Even if the show is no good, the experience of being in this beautiful old theatre is amazing." You can also take a guided tour of the Fox on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
There are performances most nights of the month; prices for tickets depend on the show and the seating area. Guided tours—offered by the Atlanta Preservation Center—cost $10 for adults and $5 for adults. For more information, visit the Fox Theatre's website.
