“We are proud that Broadway audiences are going to experience the beautifully renovated Lyric Theatre that has been so sensitively and lovingly designed,” said Mark Cornell, CEO of Ambassador Theatre Group. “We are so grateful to our partners in this project: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’s producing team led by Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender, as well as the brilliant minds and tireless spirit of Christine Jones, Brett J. Banakis, and Gary Beestone.  I also need to acknowledge the work of Charcoal Blue, Zubatkin, New 42nd Street, Yorke Construction, Marvel Architects and the EDC.  We couldn’t have asked for a better group of collaborators”.
