Trivia & History

The auditorium was demolished and architectural elements reused for the Foxwoods Theatre. The 43rd Street facade still stands as the Foxwoods's 43rd Street entrance.


A well-documented ghost sighting occurred on the stage on December 21, 1909 when the Broadway production of Clyde Fitch's play The City opened. Fitch had died several months before but during the curtain call, a man walked out onstage that no one had seen before but looked exactly like Fitch. He took a bow and disappeared, all in plain view of the cast and audience.


The Lyric closed in 1934 and began showing movies.
