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

A newer series, the Peabody at the Lyric, featuring Kurt Weill "Street Scene" was what drew me to this historic opera house. I was quite impressed with the production, although the featured artists were mainly students at the Peabody Institute and not quite "professional" yet. There were some outstanding performers, however. The staging and design were very well done. Featured... More

Beautiful modernized historic concert hall. My husband was a professional freelance first-call trombone player in Baltimore in the late '70s and early '80s and he had backed up Patti LaBelle for two or three shows there in 1984 and he wanted me to see this theater. The acoustics are wonderful and the seats are comfortable and my husband is 6'6"... More

You CANNOT go wrong with sitting on the sides in these 2 theaters - - THEY ARE REGULAR CHAIRS that are not bolted down! SO MUCH ROOM! We always try for first or last row in one of these side sections. 1st row, you have the ledge to lean on. Last row, you can move your chairs up, back, sideways.... More
