Bob Baker Marionette Theater

Los Angeles, CA  90026

Back in the 1950s, legendary puppeteer Bob Baker developed The Circus, a traveling musical marionette show replete with clowns, animals and everything else found under the big top, albeit under a much smaller top. The show was adapted to be performed at Baker's theater when it opened in Echo Park in 1963, but it eventually ran its course and hasn't been staged for audiences in its original form in 40 years. In the name of nostalgia, the theater is reviving The Circus beginning today. To make the experience as authentic as possible, the theater's staff is restoring puppets and backdrops and preserving the original soundtrack for posterity. Best part: no dodging PETA protesters at this circus.
