This week, it all comes full circle and there will be lots of celebration.

Downtown Birmingham’s Lyric Theatre — after years of successful fundraising, construction and compromise — will welcome its first visitors in its newly refurbished building.

No matter where you sit, you’ll get a good view of the live performances. The theatre features nearly a thousand seats on two levels and 12 opera boxes.

A grand opening ceremony kicks off Thursday, Jan. 14, with shows running through the weekend. And that’s only the beginning. For more information on upcoming performances, visit The Lyric’s website.

Brittany Faush-Johnson gives us a peek inside, just days before the doors open.
