Me - Headshot

Abandoned Places – The Lyric Theatre versus The Alabama Theatre (July 09)

The Lyric Theatre

Without a doubt, my visit to The Lyric in Birmingham has left me with a dilemma. How to show off the beautiful old building, compare it to the restored Alabama and do them justice. In this case, I’m going to take you through the former lobby of the Lyric. When the theatre closed for shows, the lobby area was used as a storefront for many years. The area is now being used as a staging area for the repairs, storage for supplies and equipment. The hope is this will again become the grand entrance to the performing arts venue the landmark trust wants to restore The Lyric to.
