This theatre was built between 1996 and 1998 by combining the architecture of the old Apollo and Lyric Theatres. Today, patrons sit under the dome from the Lyric and proscenium arch from the Apollo. The vastness of the stage and house is conducive to the mega-musicals that have played there, like "Jesus Christ Superstar," "Ragtime," "42nd Street," and "Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark." Formerly known as the Ford Center, the Hilton Theatre, and the Foxwoods Theatre, it is now once again the Lyric.
There are no steps into the theatre from the sidewalk. Wheelchair accessible seating is located in Row G of the Dress Circle only. There are elevators to the Dress Circle, but no other levels. Wheelchair accessible restrooms are located in Dress Circle lobby.
