- Does anyone know where to get good quality parasols very quickly? I am
costuming a college production of "Pirates of Penzance" which is running
through next weekend, and the parasols that I ordered (from The Costumer)
are terrible quality and are already breaking. They were $12 each and I
feel ripped off, so I don't want to order from that place again. But I
think I need to get a new set, and I need to get it before next
- As far as books go, I'd try and find "From the Neck Up". It's one of the
better one books on the subject.
