Emmy Award-winning composer Dennis McCarthy teams up with Charles McArthur prize winner John Strand for this spirited American musical adaptation of the classic French farce An Italian Straw Hat

Drawing on elements from vaudeville, ragtime, light opera and even barbershop quartet, the rollicking new musical follows a hapless young bridegroom through turn-of-the-century New York, as he tries to correct a horrendous problem ...

It seems his horse has eaten a young lady's hat, and his wedding will be derailed if he can't find a replacement - Today!


"Breathless fun! A highly accomplished effort, a smart comic machine that hurdles its characters from one amusingly improbable scenario to another HAT simultaneously detonates a dozen tiny plot points like some stage supercollider" ~ Los Angeles Times

"Exhilarating ... Stylish and inspired ... Lightning-paced entertainment that looks and sounds sensational and keeps us rolling with laughter in the aisles ... This riotous romp is a show for all seasons" ~ Backstage
