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

The very core or heart of any theater is the stage and the various items, equipment, lights and controls used to make the show happen. The Lyric was designed primarily as a Vaudeville (live acts) theater so the stage was state of the art in the 1920’s. According multiple sources, George Burns, Houdini, Buster Keaton and many legendary performers graced the stage of The Lyric. Sadly, the hardwood (teak) stage has suffered the worst of the decay and rot. Only the plywood covering the remains, made walking on it for the following pictures relatively safe.
