The Lyric Theater was a focal point of social life in Overtown, the center of Miami's historic African-American community. When the theater opened, it was an important stop on the black vaudeville circuit, known affectionately as the "Chitlin' Circuit." In the 1930s and 1940s, the theater was a major component of NW 2nd Avenue's "Little Broadway" entertainment district and contributed to Overtown's reputation as the "Harlem of the South." The building has been recently restored and serves as a performing arts center. The Lyric Theater was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.

Best Roofing was proud to be contracted to install the new roofing systems for the theater through a phased plan, which is still in progress.
