Was the Greek Theatre Damaged by the Fire?
While we're unaware of any specific damage to the Greek Theatre, we're certain it's littered with ash and smells-like-burning.
So is Nederlander, the production company that books shows at the Greek.
Tomorrow night's Loreena McKennitt concert has been moved to the Gibson Amphitheatre.
Today's cooler temps helped firefighters get the Griffith Park fire under control. After consuming over 800 acres, the fire is
50 75 percent contained and will hopefully be entirely contained within 24 hours, according to LAFD Chief Douglas Barry.
Via the LAFD blog, the following Griffith Park landmarks have been damaged:
# DANTE’S VIEW- DESTROYED BY FIRE
# CAPTAIN’S ROOST- DESTROYED BY FIRE
# BIRD SANCTUARY- DAMAGED 10% BY FIRE
# GRIFFITH PARK NURSERY- 1 CITY VEHICLE LOST, SEVERAL RESTROOMS DESTROYED BY FIRE
# CEDAR GROVE- DAMAGED 20% BY FIRE
At present, this weekend's Keane and Harry Connick, Jr. shows are still slated for the Greek. More info after the jump.
