About Us

Located on 43rd Street in Times Square, NYC

The Lyric Theatre is set in the heart of New York City’s renowned theatre district in Times Square. With a capacity of 1,900, the venue is able to house some of the biggest shows on Broadway, like Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, on Broadway since 2018.

Every seat in the theatre’s auditorium has an excellent view of the stage, with an intimate atmosphere despite its large scale. Plus, with modern technology and the finest acoustics, performances can be heard the way its writers intended.

For Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’s North American premiere, The Lyric Theatre underwent a complete redesign and transformation to reimagine the wizarding world. Now, the theatre is steeped in phoenix sconces, Hogwarts house flags and enchanting castle-esque decor. To find out about the theatre’s original interior, read about our history.
