I know, everyone has seen the movie or the play somewhere, but never in so intimate a setting as the Lyric Stage in Boston. Do you have any trepidation of the cast being reduced from around 45 to 16? Don't be. These are superb performers...More

Was fortunate to catch the opening night performance of Kiss of the Spider Woman. The theater is very intimate and seating is very close to the stage. The production itself was highly memorable and I look forward to returning to see other shows. Highly recommend!

It was our first time at the Lyric Theater and we loved the small intimate venue. The play "Road Show" was OK. It could probably have been better as a drama than a musical.

Roadhouse...not one of Sondheim's best endeavors but entertaining nonetheless. Lyric always does a good job providing excellent production and an entertaining evening.

We went and saw Gypsy last night. The performance was incredible!! This is a small intimate theater with a great group of talented actors. We were close enough to feel like we were right on stage. We will definitely consider becoming subscribers.
