Backstage with Wicked, the musical

One of the keys to serving theatrical productions is the ability to pick up their costumes after a performance and return those same costumes before the next performance.

This task is complicated by the fact that many theatrical costumes are expensive, hand made, one-of-a-kind garments, often involving beads, sequins, rhinestones, leather trim, suede trim vinyl trim, feathers, appliques of different types, and various combinations thereof. Many of these theatrical costumes meet the technical definition of "couture".

Case in point are our services to Wicked, the musical, that just ended a four week run at the ASU Gammage in Tempe, Arizona.

In this case, we picked up about 80 theatrical costumes at around 10:00 p.m. on a Sunday night and returned them in perfect condition - intense coloration, stain free and perspiration free - at around 3:00 p.m. on a Tuesday afternoon.

During that time interval, we catalogued all the costumes, cleaned and hand pressed each one, and completed all minor repairs including tightening loose hooks, eyes, beads, sequins and rhinestones, and resewing open seams and dangling hems.

    What an honour! I saw the show (and hence all these costumes) when I was in New York. :)
