Worth every penny. Absolutely loved it. We were at the first row and it was wonderful. Combination of masterful dances, classical and traditional Chinese music, a soprano act, and small plays. What more can you ask for?

We went to see SHEN YUN in Sydney Lyric Theatre . What you see in the advertisement is NOT what you get. During the whole show the most you see is 12 dancers on the stage. Not even close to spectacular show they promote in their trailers !

We visited the Lyric this week to see Hamilton. When I booked the tickets my mother didn’t need the support of a wheelchair but things changed and I was a little concerned as we headed off. In the end there was no need. We were met by Dimetri who helped us into the theatre, showed us where to pick up the premium packs and took us to our seats.
After the show another team member brought back our chair and helped us out again.
Thanks for making our night flow so we could just enjoy the fantastic show.

At last saw the show in this fantastic theatre. Dress circle was great, staff excellent despite having to check double vaccination certificates. Loved the ice cream staff at interval, brings back memories!

Great venue. Loved our seats in dress circle. Be ready for all the steps to seating. Acoustics good for live performances. Ushers were helpful, enjoyed having a candy guy (memories from long ago) selling goodies from his tray!

Hamilton at the Lyric Theatre Sydney
We had the best time and must congratulate the Sydney crew and production for the performance on Saturday 29 May. I thought the production very closely followed the original Broadway production so thank you so much for authenticity. We had a few understudies who did an amazing job, including Jimmie “J.J” Jeter who played Alexander Hamilton, he was great in the role and Lin-Manuel would have been really proud. I was dancing in my seat all night, We couldn’t stop talking about the production. Really well done. Thank you and love to see it again.

This show is a must! Words fail to do justice - you must experience it for yourself. Get familiar with the sound track first - the lyrics are complex and fast.

The Lyric is a lovely theatre and did a great job of being Covid safe.

This is incredible! Hamilton ticks every box there is in terms of entertainment and spectacular song / choreography / acting / set / costume.
Just brilliant.
Thanks Lyric for keeping Covid precautions active and for setting us up in the theatre in a safe and responsible environment.
Amazing show.

I went to the matinee session of Hamilton on 4/4. I was booked into the Royal Box, as I am recovering from surgery I contacted Ticketmaster and they informed me there were only a few stairs down to the seat we proceeded. We got to the theatre where we spoke to an attendant who advised that we would have at least 50 stairs. He immediately took us into the Ticketmaster desk and the lovely girl managed to get us better tickets. After having lunch we returned to the theatre and we were treated like royalty we were met at the front door shown where everything was and told to let them know when we are ready to enter the theatre. They seated us and made sure my wheelchair and crutches were stored. They came and saw me at intermission and asked if I wanted my crutches or wheelchair. They even volunteered to wheel me to the toilet when my daughter had gone to get merch. All in all every staff member was a credit to the theatre - we’ll done and thank you. Lisa
