PADY BLACKWOOD, one of the all-time great marionette manipulators, died recently. He had a heart-attack in a parking lot in Florida.
Olga knew Pady very well having worked with him at the NICOLO MARIONETTES and the BIL BAIRD MARIONETTE THEATRE. He was loved and respected and a was wonderful, talented person. I did several posts about Pady in the past, so I will let them serve as our living memories of this gifted, gentle soul.
