“Home of Atlanta Lyric Theatre”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

The Strand is a breath of fresh air to Marietta! Beautiful venue, awesome lineup, including "The Atlanta Lyric Theatre", and a quaint setting in historic Marietta Square. We've seen the theater productions "White Christmas"and Beehive" there, and it rivals the big city theaters.

Great, refurbished theater in Marietta Square. Excellent acoustics. An organ from the 1920's that takes you back in time. EXCELLENT Lyric Theater performances there - highly talented individuals. A little Broadway in old Marietta Square. highly recommend

“Wonderful venue!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I always enjoy the Strand. Whether it be to see a show or to attend a party, it's a great place to be. My husband and I have season tickets to the Lyric Theatre, and really enjoy taking friends. My husband saw movies there as a youngster, so the nostalgia is also a great addition.

“1930's & 40's Broadway comes to small town Georgia”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

The 1935 Art Deco theater was renovated in 2009 and is the primary home to the Atlanta Lyric Theater. The Atlanta Lyric Theater stages about 6 productions a season, including classics like Forever Plaid, Gypsy, Anything Goes, White Christmas and the list goes on. The performers are high energy, making any show they do fun to watch. They do a great job with sets and costuming. Small and intimate, you almost feel a part of the show. The restoration gives the theater a vaudeville/ broadway feel making it a fun, nostalgic place to enjoy a show. In addition to live productions, the theater runs film events.

“Good shows , not so good seats”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We've been there several time to see a show there. We've found that the higher up you sit the better is the view. The more expensive seats upstairs do not offer as good a view as the as the cheaper ones/ Still it's agreat place to see ashow without having to go into Atlanta
