Thriller Live is showing at the Lyric Theatre and will close at this venue on 26th April 2020 since the theatre is being refurbished.  A new venue for this show has not been announced yet.  The Lyric Theatre opened on 17th December 1888 making this venue the oldest on Shaftsbury Avenue.  It was home to many operas, plays and musicals.

The Lyric Theatre is owned by Nimax Theatres, meaning their website is the best place to buy tickets for Thriller Live.  For more information on your visit to the Lyric Theatre, read our guide.
