Fire Destroys Berkeley Rep Shop

A fire has destroyed Berkeley Repertory Theatre’s scene shop. “The Rep’s two theaters and adjacent School of Theatre in downtown Berkeley were not affected by the three-alarm fire, but the rented warehouse where the company has built all its sets for 15 years, located many blocks away in northwest Berkeley, was destroyed. The Rep’s immediate losses, estimated in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, were principally in the form of tools and materials.”
