Richie Havens

Stuart FL ~ We had the privilege to see this legend at the Lyric Theater in Stuart Fl. last night. The Lyric holds just 500 people. Not a bad seat in the house.The LYRIC THEATRE was built in 1925 as a silent movie house and was operated until the depression when it was closed and eventually sold. Over the next 50 years it was bought and sold to various concerns and used in a variety of manners. In 1987, a downtown redevelopment effort was underway. A group of community minded individuals saw the LYRIC THEATRE, situated in the heart of downtown, and realized there was an opportunity to save a historically significant structure, thus contributing to the redevelopment effort, as well as to provide a much needed location for various types of events presented to the community. This is our second show at the Lyric ~ wonderful that a few of these old theaters have been preserved.
