Atlanta Lyric Theatre is excited to present our 34th season of musicals!
2013-14 will be our most spectacular season to date! With five fantastic shows – Mel Brooks’ hysterical Tony Award-winning The Producers; Frank Loesser’s classic Broadway musical Guys and Dolls; the song and dance extravaganza Duke Ellington’s Sophisticated Ladies; everyone’s favorite little orphan Annie the Musical; and the irreverently funny musings of Monty Python’s Spamalot – we look forward to continuing to deliver unforgettable theatrical experiences to our patrons. Additionally, The Lyric will re-mount the successful holiday production of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas as an add-on to our season.
We are thrilled to announce that The Lyric’s 34th season of musicals will be presented at the Cobb Civic Center’s Anderson Theatre — a 600-seat venue only 1.5 miles from the Marietta Square, featuring a large stage, spacious orchestra pit, excellent sound system and acoustics, and all the other amenities of a first-class venue for Broadway-quality productions. The Civic Center’s Anderson Theatre has hosted big-named acts such as Frankie Avalon, Debbie Reynolds, Ben Vereen, Vicki Lawrence, Linda Eder, Brenda Lee, The Osmond Brothers, and many more.
The Cobb Civic Center also boasts abundant, safe, and well–lit parking adjacent to the theatre. Additionally, The Lyric, along with the City of Marietta, is working on shuttle service to and from the Marietta Square. We remain committed to the retailers and restaurateurs on the Square and look forward to partnering with them on our new and exciting season.
We are excited to bring our season to the Cobb Civic Center and thank all those involved for keeping The Lyric in Cobb County, in particular, Cobb County Commission Chairman Tim Lee. We especially appreciate the efforts of Marietta Mayor Steve Tumlin, who presented a generous proposal to The Friends of the Strand (the group that oversees the operations of The Strand Theatre) in order to help The Lyric stay at The Strand. While that proposal was ultimately rejected by The Strand, we are looking forward to our move to the Cobb Civic Center, because this will allow us to keep our season subscribers and single ticket holders from encountering an increase in their ticket prices. The Lyric is committed to producing professional theatrical productions that are affordable for families to enjoy.
Current subscribers have the first chance to renew and lock-in their preferred dates and seating – but only for a limited time. Renewal sales will begin on April 25th. Season subscriptions and single tickets will go on sale to the general public June 3rd.
