LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The Greek Theater announced tonight it has canceled its 2020 season because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Conforming to state, county and city guidelines made mass gatherings for concerts and other large crowd events improbable, according to AP Diaz, the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks executive officer.
“Although we had hoped to celebrate our 90th anniversary season of providing live entertainment for the citizens of Los Angeles we feel it is the right, responsible and safe thing for fans, artists, staff and our Griffith Park community to put a pause on live, large crowd events until 2021,'' Diazsaid.
Theater management will be “working with all our valued partners to reschedule any previously planned events,'' Diaz said.
Fans were asked to monitor the theater's website for event status updates.
