Subject: [Puptcrit] Update on Bob Baker situation-part 2 (Saturday L A Times


The item in Friday's Los Angeles Times (Calendar Section) Nov 21 print edition is several paragraphs shorter than the web version cited by Andrew.

In today's print edtion (Saturday, Nov 22, in the Califonia section (local news) page B1 there are two color photos (one with Bob and 4 marionettes) and continuing on page B6 there are 2 b/w photos. It takes up about a page and a half. "HOLDING ON BY A STRING" by Cara Mia DiMassa says "The decades-old Bob Baker Marionette Theater in L.A. is facing financial trouble, but the owner is determined the show will go on."

Bob is hopeful, but the news is conflicting---as of Thursday, Anthony Esgerra (Keller Williams Realty) said the building was for sale. Real Estate records are unsettling: priced for a "fast sale ($!.5 million) & a short escrow. Meanwhile the NUTCRACKER is "now playing". If you are in Los Angeles or plan to visit during the Holiday Season, make time to see Bob's holiday show.

NOW, more than ever!

According to a story in the L.A. Times, Bob Baker says (thankfully) that the
situation at his theatre is not as dire as it made out to be recently. They
do need $30,000 but are not in danger of closing December 3rd.
