Mad Hatters

Theme Thursday - Hats!

 One of my favorite San Francisco experiences is a trip to North Beach's Club Fugazi for a performance of Beach Blanket Babylon, a musical revue featuring extravagant costumes and outrageous hats.




This well-known club attracts tourists and locals alike, many (like me) who have seen the show several times and left the theater wearing a mile wide smile.  The continually evolving plot consists of Snow White searching for her forever lost prince and showcases a talented wig and hat wearing cast who brilliantly spoof pop and political culture.





Really, these hats are not to be believed! For the show's silver anniversary, the lead actress wore a 22 ft. long, 250 lb. hat depicting the San Francisco skyline. It was amaaaazzzing!

I think I may be due for another BBB fix; it has been too many years.

  3. Wow...great hats! They are like a work of art. It would take a lot of practice to be able to walk with one on your head.
