Grand Performances in 2014, Greek Theatre

As we finish up one season, and begin to plan another at our home venue California Plaza, I wanted to tell you about another opportunity on the horizon - one that will give us the opportunity to program at the historic Greek Theatre in Griffith Park. Recognizing Grand Performances' deep roots in the community and our commitment to promoting L.A.-based artists, the Nederlander Family asked us to program their (free) community stage. We're excited about the possibility to expand our programming. As you may know, the Greek Theatre is under review for new management (read more about it here), and the Nederlanders are at risk of losing the right to the venue they've managed for nearly four decades. We are proud that the Nederlanders asked Grand Performances to collaborate with them and they have asked our fans to sign the petition here.
