Lexington's Lyric Theater, at the corner of 3rd and Elm Tree Lane, was a mecca in its heyday, playing host to giants like Count Basie and Sarah Vaughan. Over time, it has fallen into neglect followed by abandonment. There is an effort in town to restore the theater and they recently had an open house. The second I stepped inside, I felt washed over by memories here and an aura of utter greatness. In the blink of an eye, I realized that Lexington needs — NEEDS — the Lyric Theater back.
