Too bad such a great building is left dilapidated.. Any intentions for its revival?

Unfortunately not for now, but many people have expressed their interest for its revival. This building belongs to the city government.

Quote:
The structure was demolished in spring 2010, while the rebuilding is expected to take three years. Reasons cited for the reconstruction include concerns over the building's ability to survive earthquakes, as well as accessibility issues. A series of farewell performances, entitled Kabuki-za Sayonara Kōen (歌舞伎座さよなら公演 lit. "Kabuki-za Farewell Performances"?) were held from January through April 2010, after which kabuki performances take place at the nearby Shinbashi Enbujō and elsewhere until the opening of the new theatre complex, currently scheduled for 2013.[4][5]

Teatro Principal - Puebla, México

Teatro Principal was inaugurated in 1761 and designed in baroque style. Probably, the oldest theater in the Americas.

Sadly, a new paint job was adopted to tone down the theme (according to Forgotten NY, some of the church’s congregants apparently felt the imagery was too Satanic).

the last theatres are amazing!!!

now:

Teatro Solis, Montevideo, Uruguay

It was built in 1856 and is currently owned by the government of Montevideo.
In 1998, the government of Montevideo started a major reconstruction of the theatre, which included two US $110,000 columns designd by Phillipe Starck. The reconstruction was completed in 2004 with the re-opening taking place in August of that year.
