Greek Theatre Cancels Entire 2020 Season Due to Pandemic

The Greek Theatre is trying to stay during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – they canceled their entire 2020 summer schedule.

This is the first time in the theatre’s 90-year history that they have canceled an entire season.

“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,” said AP Diaz, executive officer and chief of staff of L.A.’s Department of Recreation and Parks, which owns the celebrated facility via Deadline.

Big names that were scheduled to perform at the Greek Theatre this summer included Alicia Keys, John Legend, and Kesha.

Some events at the Greek Theatre have been outright canceled, while others have been postponed or reschedule.
