How that manifests is in a couple

The Lyric has been a pioneer, since its inception, of nurturing talented, up-and-coming Boston actors, designers, directors, musicians, technicians, and arts administrators. Here's a video of Lyric founders Ron Ritchell & Polly Hogan talking about how it was a cardinal value of theirs from the very first show here at the Lyric to support local artists, and not "outsource"

Okay, folks. We are really pleased to introduce a new enrichment to the Lyric Stage lobby - the Lyric Stage Book Nook! What's a Book Nook, you ask? Let me and Christina Malanga explain it to you in today's Theater in Thirty: https://youtu.be/JftThOyfcNc?list=PLKpNItkXewsJ4BNwNT2q38eytucmvM0kL Stop by and check out the merchandise we have at the Book Nook - it includes scripts, soundtracks, and more.

We sold to 96% capacity. We laughed, we cried, we made over $10000 in donations for the Theater Community Benevolent Fund, and we had a lot of fun. Enough said. Just watch the
