The Lyric Theatre on Broadway is not to be confused with the theater that rose to prominence in the early 20th century, as that one closed in 1992 and, in fact, no longer exists. The Lyric Theatre of today was built in 1998 on the site of the old Lyric Theatre and has changed hands several times. It was called Foxwoods Theatre, Hilton Theatre, and the Ford Center for the Performing Arts before returning to its original name in 2014.

In 2017 and 2018, it was extensively restored, and its capacity was reduced from its former 1,866 seats to 1,622; yet it is still one of the larger theaters in New York.
