Bob Baker Marionette Theater

Bob Baker Marionette Theater

Map
1345 W. 1st St. , Los Angeles, CA 90026, United States

Bob Baker carves marionettes and trains apprentices to animate them. With its houselights on, the theater is nothing: squirming kids and cheesy, dusty Christmas decorations. With the lights down, it's unforgettable - part Ice Capades, part Muppets, part Chinese opera, part Bolshoi Ballet. And you see the puppeteers, a rainbow of ethinicities, walking among the audience, hands flying, convincing you that the marionettes are alive and the humans are struggling to keep up with them. Admission $15.
