If you need more information, or would like help problem-solving an access need, please contact Katherine Shaver (katherine_shaver@lyricstage.com) or call our Box Office (617-585-5686).

We offer wheelchair bays and companion seats at each performance, available for purchase online, over the phone with our Box Office, or through third party vendors like ArtsBoston and Goldstar. Should you have a question about the accessibility of your seat, please contact our Box Office. We will be happy to make any necessary adjustments to your ticket.

We provide Assistive Listening Devices at the Box Office free of charge on a first-come-first-served basis. You will be asked to provide an ID or other form of collateral to secure a device, which will be returned to you following the performance.

Large print programs are available free of charge from our ushers and at the Box Office.

We are located on the second floor of 140 Clarendon Street. There are entrances on Clarendon Street and Stuart Street.

Clarendon Street Entrance

The Clarendon Street entrance can be accessed by seven steps (with handrails) from the sidewalk to the front door. This entrance will lead you to the building’s main lobby, where an elevator or flight of stairs will bring you to the Lyric Stage’s lobby on the second floor.

Stuart Street entrance

The Stuart Street entrance is at street level. When you enter, there are seven steps to the right and a lift to the left, which brings you up to the first floor. You may continue to the main lobby, where an elevator or flight of stairs will bring you to the Lyric Stage’s lobby on the second floor.

The Lyric Stage lobby on the second floor offers a number of chairs, booth seats, backless seats, and tables for your comfort before the show. It may be accessed from the main lobby by elevator or up one flight of stairs.

All guests enter the seating area via a ramp (with handrails). Row A seats do not require steps to access, Row B seats require two steps, Row C requires four steps, and so on up to Row J, which requires 18 steps to access. All staircases have handrails on at least one side of the steps. Wheelchair bays with companion seating are available on the first level.

There are bathrooms located on the first and second floors of the building. All bathrooms have accessible stalls.

Our building has currently turned off use of water fountains as a health measure. We will have small water bottles available in the Box Office before the show, or you can bring a water bottle from home.
