Welcome

to Music Hall Detroit

The Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts is a 1,731-seat theatre located in the city's entertainment district at 350 Madison Avenue in Detroit, Michigan. It was built in 1928 as the Wilson Theatre, designated a Michigan State Historic Site in 1976, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. The Music Hall Center is also home to the 100 seat Jazz Cafe and the 3 Fifty Terrace on the rooftop.

From the desk of Vince PauL:

Madison’s streetscape improvement is zooming along down here – don’t miss the chance to see the work so you can REALLY appreciate how gorgeous the finished product will be!

Another hot ticket in our World Culture Series this month, as we welcome the Royal Ballet of Cambodia to the stage on Thursday Nov. 6. It’s gorgeous work that goes back 1,000 years to the Imperial Days. But it was almost eradicated during the terrible times of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, which gives it a special poignance – an example of the amazing power of the performing arts to transcend humanity’s failings, and help us see the way to better times.

And speaking of hot ticket – Carl Palmer plays the Jazz Café on November 20. You know the name, right? As in Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. One of the most renowned drummers in rock history – and music fans are already snapping up tickets from as far away as Toledo, so don’t wait to call box office for the 7pm or 9pm show.

The inimitable Dick Gregory takes the stage on 11/14 to give his take on ‘What’s Going On In America’. This octogenarian has been telling it like he sees it for as long as anyone can remember, and you won’t want to miss his take on the state of things. Let’s just say he’s kind of in a category of one.

.

A happy marriage of two of our missions – working with local talent and developing young minds – takes place on Nov. 2 when Children’s Theatre of Michigan presents ‘Boogah and Hoogah’s House’ – a post-Halloween treat of a show that invites the little ones to keep the spirit alive by wearing their favorite costumes! Lots of good fun.

Look for a steady Detroit lineup in our Café throughout the month, because there’s no talent like homegrown talent!
