Legendary Costume Designer Bob Mackie was on his annual visit to Ptown to see his old friend the jazz singer Marilyn Maye perform whilst he continues to work on the costumes for The Cher Show opening on Broadway in the Fall. when he stopped by Queerguru to talk about dressing gay icons and so much more.

 

It has become quite a tradition for us  too as Bob has generously sat down for an interview with us for the past four years : a real treat that we look forward to each summer as we  learn more about the fascinating life he has so thoroughly enjoyed having become something of a gay icon himself.

 

The interview with Roger Walker-Dack waa filmed by Dan Desjardins in the Queerguru Garden.

The Legendary Bob Mackie is heading back to Off-Broadway

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , Leave a comment on The Legendary Bob Mackie is heading back to Off-Broadway

The 9 time Emmy Award Winner legendary Costume Designer BOB MACKIE refuses to stop working. And why should he when he is still very much in demand? His newest project just announced is a truly inspired idea from some Broadway Producers who have commissioned Bob to design the costumes for a revival of the iconic gay cult classic show ‘Howard Crabtree’s When The Pigs Fly’.

This is a musical review that first opened in 1996 and was based on Howard Crabtree’s own life when his school counsellor made fun of his ambitions of wanting to be something they considered so frivolous as a costume designer. Bob confessed to us that this was similar scenario his own when he was a youth.

The show that actually revolved around the costumes, was a major success and won awards, but sadly something not witnessed by Howard who died of complications from AIDS just before it’s first night.

Bob knows all about winning awards as he picked up yet another one earlier this year: the Hollywood Beauty Award for Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design & Styling but we spent most of our conversation talking about his very colorful life extravagantly dressing some extraordinary women which is still doing decades later after he got his first big break with the celebrated Hollywood designer Edith Head.

Bob was in P Town to see his good friend the jazz singer Marilyn Maye perform and also to take in the magic of this town at the tip of Cape Cod which, as it possesses more Cher impersonators per square mile then probably any other city in the world,  is always especially pleased to see him.

Bob Mackie was in conversation with Roger Walker-Dack for ‘queerguru reports’ on queerguru.tv and was filmed by Hussein Wentz at The Anchor Inn Beach House, Provincetown.
