I have been to many shows at the Lyric. The passion and commitment is alive in every performance. The quality of cast and production is first rate. Very professional. One of the best entertainment values in Portland, Maine.

I have been to numerous shows at the lyric theater, and I would recommend it to anyone. While it is not the most beautiful theater known to man, it is one with a professional setting.
