The theater is showing its age a bit, but the excellent staff, well-maintained facility, excellent lighting and audio controls allowed a really strong performance of the Dreamgirls touring show.

The Lyric sits in the middle of a cultural hub.Located near the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall and the Maryland Institute of Art.The opera house was opened in 1894.On the walls of the atrium you can find ephemera of Baltimore history.It is airy and welcoming.The seats were made for an earlier day and so people of ample girth will find them tight.Parking for events is located right across the street.All in all it is a pleasant place with an air of class that enhances any performance.

This was the worst experience I have had goign to a play. The play was ok, the people were a hotttt mess and kept talking, would not stay in theirs seats. Bottom line I left in the middle of the play.

A friend and I took her Mom to the Lyric to see Lord of the Dance for her 87th birthday. The show was fantastic and our seats were great. I had called to ask for special seating as the Birthday girl uses a walker and they did not disappoint. We had great unobstructed seats that were easy to get to.

The only thing I would mention as a negative are the manners and personalities of the ushers. They could use a lesson in dealing with the public with courtesy and a smile.

There are no bad seats in this place. We were there for a Christmas BSO concert and they opened up an extra section right next to the stage where we had a side view of the conductor. We had a wonderful view of the string section though. It was a long performance and we were not cramped. In some places you feel like you are in a folding chair, but not here! Almost forgot to mention the acoustics were really good. We could hear fine without being blown out of the room by the loud parts of the music.
