Towson-based Baci Management Inc., which left the Lyric Opera House and other theaters in the lurch recently after its subscription-series touring shows were abruptly canceled, has filed for bankruptcy. All but three of the eight Broadway-style productions that Baci had booked for Baltimore's Lyric between last September and this May were called off, hurting the theater and aggravating customers. The Maryland attorney general's office said it is trying to mediate 77 complaints about Baci.

A third local business has failed at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport since BAA USA was hired in 2004 to overhaul shopping and dining options for passengers. Baci Bar & Grill, which a Little Italy restaurateur opened outside a Southwest Airlines security checkpoint two years ago, shut down Thursday, airport officials confirmed. Its owner, Germano Fabiani, could not be reached for comment yesterday. Baci's shuttering comes as BAA and the Maryland Aviation Administration have struggled to increase small and minority-owned businesses at the airport.

About 70 Baltimore-area theater lovers who were left in the lurch when they bought tickets to shows that abruptly were canceled will receive refunds of about 42 cents on the dollar. George W. Liebmann, the court-appointed trustee, filed a final distribution notice yesterday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court outlining the proposed liquidation of the remaining assets of Performing Arts Productions, the Baltimore branch of Baci Management Inc. Before it filed for liquidation under Chapter 7, the Towson-based company founded by Nicholas Litrenta specialized in staging Broadway-style shows at such venues as the Lyric Opera House in Baltimore, the Warner Theatre in Washington and at stages in Norfolk and Richmond, Va. If there are no objections to the distribution schedule - and Liebmann doesn't expect any - checks to about 70 Lyric patrons would be mailed in 20 days.

The Lyric Opera House, one of Baltimore's premier theatrical venues, has fallen dark for several weeks this season as four of its five national touring shows have been canceled. The no-shows, which include Elton John's Aida, have left patrons with useless tickets and the building's management scrambling to recoup losses. The Lyric, which also is the home of the Baltimore Opera Company, hosts a subscription series of touring shows that are booked by Performing Arts Productions, part of the Baltimore-based company Baci Management.

Sit tight. That's the advice Rick Wiles said he got when Baltimore-based Baci Management Inc. began canceling shows scheduled at the Lyric Opera House last year, leaving the 47-year-old city resident holding a season's worth of unusable tickets that cost $351.25. It started with Casablanca vanishing in a fog in October, then On Golden Pond washing out in November. At the time, Baci promised to replace both shows with Sweet Charity tickets at the Warner Theatre in Washington. So Wiles patiently waited.

Anybody who flew over the holidays - as well as during the last few months - is all too well-acquainted with the rule that carry-on liquids must be in 3-ounce or smaller containers. So, what was with some travelers who entered their plane at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport carrying two bottles of wine? Believe it or not, it's a new perk, courtesy of an airport restaurant, Baci Bar & Grill. The restaurateur behind the program believes it may be a first in the country.
