This past week, the City Council gave final approval to Councilmember Krekorian's motion allocating $200,000 from the arts development fee revenues in his district to provide a lifeline to theaters in the NoHo Arts District during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The motion enables these theaters to begin applying in the coming week for grants that will enable them to remain afloat while their stages remain dark.
The No Ho Arts District contains the second-greatest concentration of live theaters in the country. Its productions have thrilled theatergoers for decades. Councilmember Krekorian's motion offers the best hope yet that these outstanding theaters will thrive once again.
