Vince Paul, Music Hall’s President & Artistic Director, notes that “as the downtown area real estate
becomes increasingly in demand, it’s imperative that our city’s non-commercial performing artists
be able to continue to present their work in the heart of the Entertainment District.
The artists of PuppetART create top-notch, finely crafted work that has been entertaining
children and families for some twenty years, and Music Hall is thrilled
to be able to help them sustain their success.”
