Lost amphitheater returned to cultural landscape

Meanwhile, speaking of Elysian Park, an amphitheater that has been closed for decades -- closed so long I didn't know it existed; it was more than forgotten -- is not only reopening but there is a Thanksgiving performance planned.

According to a Los Angeles Theatre Academy press release dated Nov. 6:

After decades of being closed, the amphitheatre at the Elysian Therapeutic Recreation Center (ETRC) re-opens. Michael Kendall, the new Director for the ETRC and Alejandra Flores, Founder of the Los Angeles Theatre Academy (LATA) are working together to make this dream come true by presenting the first short play "A Thanksgiving Story" with over 40 kids on stage.
