Awful accoustics there
Oct 20, 2014 by: Frankenberi from Springfield, Virginia
Four comedians performed. I was there to see Eddie Graffin. It was awful because the acoustics there are not good at all. You could barely understand what they were saying so you missed many of the jokes. Unlike The Improv where the spound is crystal clear, the Lyric Opera House if is awful. I will never attend a venue there again. We had upper seats on the side. It seemed the people on the floor could hear him, they were laughing at every thing. Never again will I go here. Parking is across the street for $10.

I had never been to the Lyric until recently and was very pleased. The acoustics were great, seating comfortable and staff very helpful. My biggest concern was parking as that is never good in any large city, but there is a public garage easily within walking distance and basically serves the Lyric in the evening hours.

My daughter and I went here to see Kathleen Madigan on Oct 10, 2014. The opera house is quite lovely, however, the seats are a bit on the smallish size; I am a women's 18/20 and could fee the hardware of the seat on both sides as well as the patrons who sat on either side of me. If you want to purchase snacks, regular or adult beverages, bring cash because the ATM on site has high usage fees in addition to the ones your financial institution may charge. Drinks run $7 and up. There is an elevator for handicap access, however the bathrooms are not easy to find. The staff are very professional and will assist you to your seat if you are having difficulty. Parking is right across the street. For this event, I paid $12. ParkingPanda.com allows you to pre-purchase parking to guarantee a spot for you.

Visited here with my wife and 20 month old daughter to see Sesame Street Live and left very impressed with this venue. The lobby is spacious and has plenty of vendors. The restrooms were large and clean. The theater is small enough to have excellent sight lines but large enough to host larger acts. The seats were nice and plenty of space. The Lyric is a little on the older side, but that's what I like, call me nostalgic. Parking was easy and inexpensive. Plus the neighborhood is nice. I plan on visiting again sometime soon.
"Love this Venue"

Have been at the Lyric twice to see Il Divo. Love this venue although seats are very close together & there's not much room for moving around. The sound is awesome. Stage is large & all seats give you a great view. There is on street parking, although a parking garage is close & since most people park there, you do feel secure walking back with the crowd to your car after a show. Will definitely return!
