Proving Up

Upcoming Dates

Proving Up


Lyric’s production of Proving Up, planned for January 22-30, 2022 at Goodman’s Owen Theatre, has been postponed. Lyric’s cast and creative team were slated to travel for rehearsals beginning the first week of January, and with the overriding priority of keeping our artists, our company, and our audiences safe, we made the difficult decision to postpone the production due to the COVID-19 surge. Lyric plans to reschedule Proving Up in a future season. Ticket holders are being contacted directly and may keep the value of their tickets on account, donate the value, or request a full refund. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to returning to live performances.
