Life on a String: The Yale Puppeteers & the Turnabout Theatre

The Los Angeles Public Library presents the life’s work of Harry Burnett, Forman Brown, and Richard “Roddy” Brandon. Together, they forged a professional and deeply personal bond that lasted a lifetime and invited Los Angeles to turnabout!

This online exhibition presents a selection of objects from the forthcoming 

exhibit which will be on display in Central Library’s Getty Gallery.
