The Basics

Built in 1903 by Broadway producer David Frohman, the Lyceum reflects the charm of old Broadway, and stages Tony Award–winning shows, fromVenus in Fur to the revival ofA View from the Bridge. Attending a performance is the best way to experience the Lyceum. Buy tickets in advance, as shows often sell out. If you don’t get tickets, it’s still worth stopping by on a Broadway walking tour or a hop-on hop-off bus tour.
