El Teatro Globe Enciende sus Luces Una Vez Más en Broadway

Historic Globe Theatre Marquee Shining Once More in Broadway

By Servicios EGP

El globo giratorio tri-dimensional y las luces de color neón de la marquesina histórica se activaron por primera vez desde la década de los ochentas, marcando un hito importante en el renacimiento del Teatro Globe situado en la Avenida Broadway, en el centro de Los Ángeles. Como parte de la iniciativa Bringing Back Broadway (Trayendo de Regreso a Broadway) del Concejal José Huizar, el Teatro Globe  ha sido renovado por dentro y por fuera, y pronto estará operando como un lugar de actuación en vivo bajo la dirección del nuevo Director General Erik Chol.

“La gente dice dos cosas de Los Ángeles; que no nos preocupamos por nuestra historia y que no nos gusta caminar, pero eso está por cambiar”, dijo Huizar durante la ceremonia acompañado por miembros de Los Ángeles Conservancy y la Fundación de Teatro Histórica.

El Teatro Globe fue construido en 1913, y al estar siendo restaurado mantendrá sus características históricas y su entrada original en Broadway, que por décadas ha estado cubierta.

The historic marquee’s three dimensional spinning globe and neon lights were activated for the first time since the 1980s, marking a major milestone in the theater’s rebirth located in Broadway Avenue in Downtown L.A. As part of Councilmember Jose Huizar’s Bringing Back Broadway initiative, the Globe Theatre has been renovated inside and out, and will soon be operating as a live performance venue under the direction of new General Manager Erik Chol.

“People say two things from L.A. that we don’t care about our history and that we don’t like to walk, but that is about to change,” Huizar said during the relighting ceremony, accompanied by members of L.A. Conservancy and the Historic Theatre Foundation.

The Globe Theatre was built in 1913, and as it is being restored it will keep its historic features and its original entrance on Broadway, which has been walled in and covered for decades.
