Lyric Theatre




228 West 43rd Street, New York, 10036, US

Why You’ll Love It

A combination of the original Lyric (1903) and the Apollo (1920) Theatres, the Lyric combines innovative technology and the finest acoustics with a long-established sense of contact between the actors and the audience. Designed by Richard Lewis Blinder of Beyer Blinder Belle, in collaboration with Peter Kofman, the theater still exhibits the same historic splendor as its predecessors; the old Lyric inspired the lobby, while the old Apollo inspired the auditorium. Previous productions include Jesus Christ Superstar, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Young Frankenstein, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, and most recently, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
