Actors and their costume cupboard

On friday I was reading a self help book which implored me to ‘throw out anything you think you might need at some time in the future and keep only the things you need right now’.

It’s a hard thing for an actor to part with the treasures in his costume cupboard. Read my full article about this struggle on the Theatre People website here.

I asked a few actor friends if they also had a costume cupboard that was slowly morphing into a Costume room and the answer was a resounding yes. Take a look at some of the most random items my actor friends are hanging onto just in case they might need them one day…
