What'choo Packin?

Even as a Veteran Actor, one of the most stressful and anxiety-ridden aspects of 14/48 is packing my bag. This should be a painless activity but it's always a daunting task to second guess destiny as I pillage my wardrobe and make-up kit for potential costumes for characters that haven't even been written! Items that have randomly come into play that I happened to pack however have included a rainbow clown wig, a green Starbucks apron, a lab coat, a clip-on lip ring and coke bottle glasses. I'm asking artists what the most interesting or weird item is they've packed.

Virgin Actor Mike Mathieu brought a shoe collection.

Veteran Actor Marcy Rodenborn advises me to always bring nice underwear because you never know what you're going to be doing or where you're going to be seen on stage.

Virgin Actor Moses Kim packed knee-high socks.

Veteran Actor Kathy Hsieh brought lots of bras because there's a different bra for every occasion.

Virgin Actor Donna Wood brought a pretty pink princess dress.

Veteran Actor Darragh Kennan says it really doesn't matter what he packed because he hasn't had to use any of it!

Virgin Actor Opal Peachey has a pink wig "because you never know when you're going to play a fem-bot," especially if you get cast in a Scotto Moore play I might add.

Veteran Designer Anne Marie Caldwell packed brightly colored duct tape, a hummingbird feeder and a superhero cape.

Veteran Actor Seanjohn Walsh packed a chartreuse monkey with a windy tail. He keeps trying to work it into the play but it keeps getting cut.

Veteran Actor Ryan Higgins lives so close to the theater he didn't bring anything but a razor. He does have a drawer full of weird stuff at home though like lizard skin or a scaly black thong.

Virgin Actor Sean Ryan brought leg warmers and some black pleather hot pants with big white stars on the ass. Will he be wearing them tonight?

Veteran Actor Harry Jamieson packed a beer helmut with accompanying sippy-straw.

Veteran Designer Michael Mowery brought wood. The runners will go get everything else.

Virgin Actor Stephanie Kim has a crocheted 3D Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer hat!

Veteran Actor Lisa Viertel packed a technicolor macramé poncho which Tracy Leigh will wear tonight.

Veteran Actor Bob Christer packed a floppy hat that makes him look like a teddy bear.

Veteran Actor Julia Griffin brought a padded bra which she hasn't had to use.

Virgin Director Corey McDaniel only packed half a bowl which is well below the legal limit.
