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.

  • LIVE LIFE CHILL NOT DEAD DONE GONE

    Contrary to rumor, Live Life Chill, the bar/restaurant in the erstwhile Revolution Taco and Tequila Lounge space at the corner of Cantrell and President Clinton Avenue, is not closed. Service manager Lindsey McFadin called the Times this afternoon to say a rumor the bar had closed was killing business; by 3 p.m., no one had been in. The Times, too, had heard the rumor from a number of sources. What has changed, McFadin said, is that the bar is now only open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
