Not sure how long the marquee has been up but I just noticed it this morning.

Apologies if this has been posted already.

I like the Lyric sign. It is so much better then Foxwood.
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."

It's been about a week. And the big sign on 43rd Street was just replaced yesterday.

That looks really nice, it is a thousand times better than the Hilton and Foxxwoods logos.

I would have preferred a more classical looking serif font, but I'm glad it's the Lyric again.

Yeah I wish the whole thing would be overhauled. But it's nice. I don't so much care for that tacky gold.

So who owns the theater now? Did Foxwoods actually own it or were they partners or what?

The Ambassador Theatre Group bought the theatre from Live Nation last year. Foxwoods just paid for the naming rights (as Hilton and Ford did before them).

What is the name of the theatre west of the Lyric, the one that was covered up? Is it considered a Broadway theatre?

Not crazy about the font. I wish they could've kept it more in the style of the old Foxwoods marquee. However I'm glad that it's now officially called the Lyric Theatre.

Here's the 43rd Street Sign. They just took down the Spiderman Billboard/Foxwood Sign on top of the theatre the past few days and replaced it with On The Town.
