Thought you might be interested that the perfectly preserved crumbling brick at the Harvey Theater is actually largely faux; many elements of which (including the columns) are hollow scenery created for the first production BAM presented there of Peter Brook's "Mahabarata" back in the 80s and left in place I assume for reasons of aesthetic mojo.
Glasgow's Tramway venue also has odd charming elements which while seeming original to the tram station are also actually large leftover set elements from the same production at that venue in the same era.

Oh one other interesting tidbit is that the rear wall of the stage was distressed for that original Brook production by the local crew peppering it with shotgun blasts to give it it's cratered finish. True story.
