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

The Lyric Theatre was originally constructed as a Vaudeville theater. For those not familiar with the term, Vaudeville is the equivalent of a modern variety show or even late night talk show. Vaudeville shows would have comedy acts, singers, dancers, burlesque performances, magicians, escape artists, animal acts and much more. Like any theater that stages live acts, dressing rooms and staging areas were critical for performers to prepare, for the staff to maintain the sets, store lights and in this case to house the boiler plant to power the steam organ and heat the stage.
