For the past eight years, the Detroit Public Theatre has entertained folks with performances at the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center, in the Robert A. and Maggie Allesee Hall, but as the community theater company embarks on its 2022-2023 season, it will kick off at a new location.
Following a three-year, $5 million capital campaign, the Detroit Public Theatre has moved into 3960 3rd Street in Detroit. Their new, permanent home features a 200-seat black box theater, a welcoming lobby, bar, drama bookshop and library, rehearsal studio, and more. The first production at the theater’s new venue will be “Mud Row,” a story by award-winning Detroit playwright Dominique Morisseau.
