After five seasons at The Strand Theatre, the Atlanta Lyric Theatre is searching for a new home. After recent negotiations, the two groups were unable to reach an agreement for the 2013-2014 season and The Board of Trustees at the Friends of the Strand Board, Inc. voted unanimously to not renew the contract with the Atlanta Lyric Theatre.
According to Brandt Blocker, Artistic Director & General Manager of the Atlanta Lyric Theatre, “As the only remaining professional theatre company in Cobb County, we are committed to bringing affordable, quality theatrical experiences to our many patrons. And, we are grateful to the businesses on the Marietta Square that provide services to our audience. Within the coming days, we will be announcing our exciting new performance venue and look forward to a continued relationship with the restaurateurs and retailers on the Marietta Square. The Lyric brought over 23,000 theatregoers to the Marietta Square in 2011-12 and we know that number will be higher this season.”
The final performance will be Ragtime from April 12-18, 2013 and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat from June 7-23, 2013.
