Introducing Lyric Theatre...
The Lyric Theatre, opened on 17 December 1888, was designed by C. J. Phipps and built by producer Henry J. Leslie. Leslie funded the project with the profits he earned from the successful staging of the comic-opera Dorothy at the Prince of Wales Theatre. The outside of the theatre still remains in its original form, the façade of Dr. William Hunter's 1766 home. However, the rest of the building was gutted to make way for the facilities needed for the theatre. Notable shows at the theatre include The Little Hut, Blood Brothers, and Death of a Salesmen.
