EARLY HOLLYWOOD BOWL HISTORY 

The Bowl officially opened on July 11, 1922 on the site of a natural amphitheater formerly known as the Daisy Dell.
At first, the Bowl was very close to its natural state, with only makeshift wooden benches for the audience, and eventually a simple awning over the stage. In 1926, a group known as the Allied Architects was contracted to regrade the Bowl, providing permanent seating and a shell. These improvements provided increased capacity but were otherwise disappointing, as the regrading noticeably degraded the natural acoustics, and the original shell was deemed acoustically unsatisfactory.

In 1927, Lloyd Wright designed a pyramidal shaped shell but its appearance was deemed too avant-garde, and it was demolished at the end of the season. For the 1929 season, the Allied Architects built the shell that stood until 2003. One of the annual events at the Hollywood Bowl is the popular Easter Sunrise service, where thousands of people come to pray. In the early years,many plays, such as Julius Caesar, were performed at the Hollywood Bowl. Until the mid-1920s, all the performances were held during the daytime, because of there wasn't any artificial lighting.
