Michael Urie is back on the stage! The former Ugly Betty star begins the second engagement of his acclaimed one-man show Buyer & Cellar, written by Jonathan Tolins, on June 18. The Rattlestick Playwrights production opens officially at the Barrow Street Theatre on June 24.
The play, which earned Urie a 2013 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, tells the story of Alex More, a struggling Los Angeles actor who finds himself taking an odd job working in the Malibu basement of a Hollywood mega-star. When the A-lister makes a rare appearance one day, the comedy launches into an outrageous look at fame and the price that accompanies it.
Directed by Stephen Brackett, Buyer & Cellar features set design by Andrew Boyce, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Eric Southern and sound design is by Stowe Nelson.
