The Post-Journal

In 1913, Edward T. Connelly, who a few days ago leased the Samuels Opera House in Jamestown for the coming year, had purchased the Lyric Theater at East Third and Spring streets and would manage both playhouses. The theater was built five or six years previously and had been under the management of Harry A. Deardourff from the time of its opening. In addition to these two theaters, Mr. Connelly would continue the management of the Grand Theater at Main and First streets for the present, at least. Mr. Connelly informed The Journal that he would have The Lyric completely renovated during the next few weeks, portions of the interior to be redecorated and he intended that the opening should take place late in August or early in September.
