Nice venue, but our experience was less than stellar
Apr 12, 2015 by: Paula H from
So I bought my husband tickets to see Bob Dylan at Baltimore's Lyric Opera House for his birthday--he's a huge Dylan fan and we expected to have a good time. We did, sort of. While Dylan didn't disappoint, the venue did. Positives first: the Lyric Opera House is cool--great chandeliers, old-fashioned velvet seats, interesting architecture, and a really neat neighborhood (we even found street parking!) The negatives? Well, the servers at the cash bar were either not too bright or just trying to rip us off. Not only did they give me the wrong change (twice), they pulled the same trick with the customers to either side of me. So--be careful if you're drinking. What was worse, though, were the constant interruptions the ushers allowed--actually encouraged it seemed--during the show. Not only did they seat many, many people after the show started, they stood in the aisle and argued with two different groups of people over where their seats were located (and they knew better than the ushers!). They came pretty close to spoiling our evening. Still, I will probably give them another chance--won't sit in the balcony though!
not what she used to be

This once amazing building is still a terrific place to see a show just went to see Hannibal Buress and it is so nice not to be stuck in a concrete wall cold building with no style. With a little work and a lot of cash it could be back to it's original glory until then I will still go see shows here as opposes to other venues.
Jay Leno at the Lyric Opera House
Feb 03, 2015 by: Tammy V from Sykesville, Maryland
Saw Jay Leno at the Lyric. Jay was awesome - I laughed from the time he started talking until the end of his show. The Lyric was sold out, it was an older crowd. It was a great show. The Lyric itself isn't as pretty as other theaters I've been to, but it was nice and well staffed. Parking was very easy - there is a garage across the street from the Lyric. The garage was well staffed and worked hard to keep the lines moving into and out of the garage. The whole evening was a very pleasant experience.
Great place to See A Show

The Lyric is a great place to see a show or concert. I've see a few shows there, the acoustics are good, but it is a little dated. The seating bowl is very cramped and the bathroom facilities are old and in need of repair. There is a parking garage across the street and it is easy to find. The staff are nice and very helpful. I would go back.
Cirque Dreams Holidaze
Dec 27, 2014 by: Jen H from Gambrills, Maryland
I went to the first show of the Cirque Dreams Holidaze last night and it was amazing! We had box seats and the view was great! The acrobatics, sets, costumes and music were all brilliant and the performers were all stunning. The cake pops that they had at the snack bar were delicious and I enjoyed seeing and taking pictures of some of the War of 1812 photos that they had upstairs while waiting for the show as I am obsessed with the Battle of Baltimore! It was a great night and I loved the show!
