The Lyric Theatre in New York City opened in 1997. It stands in the spot of the old Lyric and Apollo theaters. The new Lyric Theatre was designed to be a modern, state-of-the-art facility that still honors and pays homage to the previous theaters that once stood in its place. The venue's first production was Ragtime, and it has since hosted large stage productions such as Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. In 2017, the venue underwent renovations in order to host the hit play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. You can grab the best Lyric Theatre seats at StubHub.
