The Lyceum Theatre is unique and monumental for a Broadway theatre. It has a long history, and has hosted some of the first Broadway shows, such as; The Admirable Crichton in 1903 and The Importance of Being Earnest in 1910. The Lyceum Theatre features a wavy outdoor awning that is really an unheralded work of art. The rest of the theatre exterior is plain in color, but has many intricate designs which make the theatre look like a mansion from the 1910’s. The interior follows a royal red and yellow color scheme and there are tasteful hand made marble stone designs on the many balconies. Despite its smaller size when it is compared to the other Broadway theatres on this list, there are two mezzanine seating areas for the audience. The Lyceum Theatre’s seats are covered in a luxurious red heavy suede material and are quite comfortable to sit in. There are no poles or seats with difficult-viewing angles in this theatre, that would hinder an audience member’s viewing experience.
