Still super bummed out I couldn’t make it to the BMC revival this weekend but I’m sure it was amazing and Matt and Ryan are awesomely adorable as Mike and Jer and I’m just hoping everybody had fun!! Also someone said Michael has a snapback in the show so I needed to deliver since I’ve seen NOTHING.

Btw I can’t get over their BMC Live video which is where the leap frog thing came from haha

Ronnie Spector, Dee Dee Sharp, Muhammad Ali, Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder, Micki Harris and Betty Everett backstage at the Apollo Theatre in San Francisco, December 1963.

Not to be confused with the Apollo in Harlem, the one in San Francisco originally opened as the Amazon in 1928. 

Ali was planning to marry Dee Dee Sharp (wearing the white dress) before he converted to the Muslim faith. Sharp revealed that after Ali proposed, he told her she would have to speak with his mentor Malcolm X. Malcolm told her she’d have to convert and become a Muslim but her mother refused.

Bless this man oh my Lord…..

Outdoor Stage, France (c.1905). Everett Shinn (American, 1876-1953). Oil on canvas. De Young, San Francisco.

While in Paris, Shinn was inspired by the theater scenes of Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, and Jean-Louis Forain. His work changed dramatically; he began to paint performers in action and employ unusual vantage points as in Outdoor Stage, France.
