Lyric Theatre London Tours and Activities

Lyric Theatre London
Built by producer Henry Leslie in 1888, Lyric Theatre is the oldest theater still standing along London’s famous Shaftesbury Avenue. Now run by Nimax Theatres, the cozy venue has hosted several popular shows over the years, including Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Death of a Salesman, The Night of the Iguana, and Thriller Live.

The Basics
Performances of the Michael Jackson tribute show Thriller Live are held daily (except Mondays) at Lyric Theatre, while a changing roster of shows takes over the Monday night slot. Choose from among seats in the Dress Circle, Upper Circle, Balcony, or Stalls. Shows can sell out quickly, so booking tickets in advance is highly recommended.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Thriller Live runs for about two and a half hours, including intermission.
  • Drinks and snacks are available to purchase before the show and during intermission.
  • Spaces allocated for wheelchair users are in the Dress Circle, and must be booked in advance.
  • Some seats have restricted views. Take a look at the theater’s seating plan before buying tickets.

How to Get There
Lyric Theatre is located in London’s West End, a short walk from Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, and many central attractions. The closest London Underground station is Piccadilly Circus (Bakerloo and Piccadilly lines); Leicester Square station (Piccadilly and Northern lines) is also nearby.

When to Get There
Performances of Thriller Live are held Tuesday through Sunday evenings, with matinees on weekends. Monday evenings are for temporary or special shows.

Monday Nights at Lyric Theatre
Monday evenings at Lyric Theatre are reserved for temporary shows and monthly performances, as well as a number of one-off specials throughout the year.
