Hi, all. Thanks for your interest in Detroit’s Alger Theater. I’m pleased to report, there is more going on in and around our community theater than meets the eye: interior renovations continue; community outreach deepens; and fund development is in process. Your conversation and involvement are welcome and appreciated. Check out our website and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn more:

I drove by the Alger Theater on Saturday, March 12, 2016. Looks to be in good shape, but didn’t look like much of anything was happening other than a message on the marquee for a local business, and a phone number to call to put a message up. Not the greatest neighborhood, but better than others on the east side of Detroit.
