Lyric adds donors to its history

When spectators enter the historic halls of the Lyric Theater on Friday, they may take a second look at their ticket after noticing a name on their seat. It's all part of the Take a Seat sponsorship program, an ongoing capital campaign to raise funds for the historic venue located at 819 Northwest Second Avenue. Philanthropists get to see their names immortalized in stone, through the “Take Your Seat(s)!” campaign, a fundraiser that doubles as a communal memory space.
