I attended the PostModern Jukebox show at The Lyric. They had three bar stations setup in the lobby and allowed you to take drinks in the auditorium. Seats were comfortable. Had a slightly obstructed view on third row left. Sound system could be updated; didn't fill the hall as much as I would have liked; lighting was sufficient. Parking available... More

Enjoyed the show! Great seats! Friendly staff! Drinks were pricey, but a fair pour! Parking can be an issue.

Awesome show. If you get a chance to see Mike, do. You won't be disappointed. He is a master story teller and will have you roaring. The Lyric is a great venue to see a show. Really no bad seats except note if you are up in the side balcony you will have to turn to the side to see... More

We visited the Lyric for the first time in May for a concert. It a nice older venue that's showing a little of its age but is still quite nice. Its not opulent like the warner but nice. We were in the front row of the balcony with nice seats of ample size. Not luxurious but not tight. I didn't... More

Just visited there for a concert, and was very pleased with the experience. Employees were professional, polite, and helpful. The Modell theater was very attractive and the acoustics were excellent. Parking was convenient at the Fitzgerald Garage, but don't be misled by its street address-access is actually down a small side road immediately west of the theater and isn't readily... More

Great venue for a show. Staff was efficient at getting everyone in and to their seats is a timely manner. Sightlines and acoustics were excellent.Would definitely recommend it for a show.

Just had a really bad experience with the The Lyric - Baltimore. I attend over 30 events a year at many different venues and I've never been spoken to in that manner or hung up on. NEVER buy tickets from the Lyric! I wanted to buy VIP tickets for a show for my daughter. I called the box office prior... More

Seating is ok. If you are in the balcony bring your binoculars. Staff is not very engaged, hospitable, nor helpful. Restrooms not well maintained.

Nice Comfortable Venue once your there. Not a bad seat in the house. Medium size arena and intimate stage, for national acts. Ticket prices vary, but are usually reasonable. One can see the performers from almost any angle. The size dictates a decent view. No "ant people" here. If you can see a national act of interest here, do it.... More
