Cliff Baker hospitalized in N.Y.

Posted By on Sun, Sep 2, 2018 at 12:48 PM

Arkansas Repertory Theatre founder Cliff Fannin Baker collapsed Monday, Aug. 27, while at a workshop in New York and has been hospitalized with an intercranial brain hemorrhage, a news release issued today by The Rep's board chair, Ruth Shepherd, says.

Baker underwent surgery. Guy Couch, Baker's husband, is with him. The news release did not say what hospital Baker is in, and said the family has asked for privacy.

Baker founded The Rep in 1976 and was its director until 1998, acting as guest director since. He was interviewed by the Times after The Rep announced it had to suspend its fall season because of debt.

Baker has been advising the Rep and planning for a new season in 2019.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
