New Gulfshore Playhouse Coming to Downtown Naples

Philanthropists Patty and Jay Baker held out a strong hand to Gulfshore Playhouse Wednesday, announcing a $10 million matching grant for a proposed theater to be built on Goodlette Road adjacent to the Naples Square development at U.S. 41 South.

“We believe in the community and we believe in Gulfshore Playhouse,” said Patty Baker, echoed by her husband: “We want to give back to the community we live in. It’s Patty’s philosophy: ‘You should lay eggs for every nest.’ ”

The former president of Kohl’s Department Stores and his wife, who jointly backed Broadway musicals such as the Tony-winning “Memphis,” have bestowed major gifts on the arts before. The Baker Museum at the Artis—Naples complex was named for them after a $10 million gift to that institution.
