The Lyric Theatre opened as the Ford Center for the Performing Arts in 1998 as part of the extensive Times Square renewal project. The new facility combined restored elements of the condemned Lyric and Apollo Theatres that once inhabited the site. The venue was renamed the Hilton Theatre in 2005, the Foxwoods Theatre in 2010, and the Lyric Theatre in 2014.
