The clutter problem at TMP is basically the same as anyone else’s, only magnified: too much stuff for the allotted space, an inefficient storage system, and too many people completely ignoring it. Operating since 1994, the theater gets many donations of vintage clothing that it doesn’t want to turn away, and it regularly buys items for productions as needed. Despite an annual sort through and garage sale in autumn, the wardrobe keeps growing, while the rabbit warren of rooms for hats, clothes, shoes and jewelry does not. Most rooms just contain shelves or racks.
And so George, who brought Clutterbusters in 18 months ago to sort out the props room, jumped at the chance to have them come again. On this morning, Lee and colleague Jessica Walker are tackling the fabrics, while two other Clutterbuster employees reorganize the wig and hat room. As they carefully take down mannequin heads to wipe thick dirt off the shelves, Lee and Walker pull out material, folding it neatly and restacking it by color, folded edge outwards. (“It looks so much better,” Lee says.)
