The marquee on Broadway's Los Angeles Theatre advertises Monday's Good Morning America taping.

One of Broadway's historic theatres will get a national audience Monday morning as Good Morning America broadcasts its post-Oscars show live from the 1931 Los Angeles Theatre. Appropriately, the day will focus on the celebrities, fashion and fun of Oscar night.

The show airs from 7 to 9am, showing here on ABC7. We on the west coast receive a tape delay, though, so the broadcast will actually be live from Downtown from 4 - 6am.

According to an email sent out by the Bringing Back Broadway effort, the show will also highlight the 1933 theatre and the Broadway revitalization push.

Launched in January of 2008, the Bringing Back Broadway effort is an initiative by property owners and Councilman Jose Huizar to bring life back to the upper floors and theaters lining Broadway. The street contains a dozen theaters between 3rd and 9th, all built in the early part of the 1900s.
