A big thank you for the wonderful article about Paul Mesner and his puppets (1/6, A+E, “Puppet regime; For 20 years Paul Mesner has ruled KC audiences”).
Kansas City is so very fortunate to have him in Kansas City, providing creative entertainment and taking fine arts to people of all ages.
From theater productions to free performances at various venues (libraries, museums, etc.), we should consider ourselves lucky to have this type of entertainment available to us.
“The Mikado” at the Lyric Opera was magnificent, stunning and moving. (Although our 5-year-old hardly moved during the two-hour performance!)
I’d also like to thank all of various corporate and individuals sponsors who support him.
Paul Mesner is a jewel in Kansas City’s crown, and I hope our city continues to enjoy, appreciate and embrace him.
