Saw Jay Leno at the Lyric. Jay was awesome - I laughed from the time he started talking until the end of his show. The Lyric was sold out, it was an older crowd. It was a great show. The Lyric itself isn't as pretty as other theaters I've been to, but it was nice and well staffed. Parking was... More

The Lyric is a great place to see a show or concert. I've see a few shows there, the acoustics are good, but it is a little dated. The seating bowl is very cramped and the bathroom facilities are old and in need of repair. There is a parking garage across the street and it is easy to find. The... More

I went to the first show of the Cirque Dreams Holidaze last night and it was amazing! We had box seats and the view was great! The acrobatics, sets, costumes and music were all brilliant and the performers were all stunning. The cake pops that they had at the snack bar were delicious and I enjoyed seeing and taking pictures... More

Ok since I had discounted tickets of $15 each, nothing to complain about. The theater staff were helpful and professional. But you might not get a smile. I was confused on the seating arrangement. I was told to sit anywhere I wanted in "this" area. Huh? Ok. It wasn't packed out so that didn't bother me. Sofia the first was... More

It's nice to have the option of different types of entertainment. Not every seat is a good view I guess because its older. The tickets were a normal price. A few metered parking in walking distance which are free on Sundays. A lot across the street for ten dollars is not bad either for Baltimore.

Wonderful acoustics that complemented her amazing voice and the band. Staging was bold with brilliant colors . Just the right size venue for a concert. Great visibility, too . The hall is just lovely. A Classical design highlighted by wall sculptures mader a great back drop for Aretha' s Performance .

Four comedians performed. I was there to see Eddie Graffin. It was awful because the acoustics there are not good at all. You could barely understand what they were saying so you missed many of the jokes. Unlike The Improv where the spound is crystal clear, the Lyric Opera House if is awful. I will never attend a venue there... More

I had never been to the Lyric until recently and was very pleased. The acoustics were great, seating comfortable and staff very helpful. My biggest concern was parking as that is never good in any large city, but there is a public garage easily within walking distance and basically serves the Lyric in the evening hours.

My daughter and I went here to see Kathleen Madigan on Oct 10, 2014. The opera house is quite lovely, however, the seats are a bit on the smallish size; I am a women's 18/20 and could fee the hardware of the seat on both sides as well as the patrons who sat on either side of me. If you... More
