Theatrical Milliner - American Theatre Wing

Theatrical Milliner Lynne Mackey makes customized hats for stage productions. Theatrical hats are created for a specific show, character, and costume design, fitted for each individual actor including their wig and microphone pack. Mackey must make adjustments for the needs of the sound designer, lighting designer, and choreographer to not impede their work. Seen here are dozens of hats, including large handmade ones from Mackey's favorite show The Color Purple.
