The hit show Buyer & Cellar has once again extended and will now play through August 31 at the Barrow Street Theatre. Starring Michael Urie, the off-Broadway comedy is written by Jonathan Tolins and directed by Stephen Brackett.
Urie plays a struggling Los Angeles actor named Alex, who finds himself taking an odd job working in the Malibu basement of Hollywood mega-star, Barbra Streisand. 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.
Michael Urie received the 2013 Drama Desk and Clarence Derwent Awards for his acclaimed performance. He will launch the national tour of Buyer & Cellar in Chicago’s Broadway Playhouse in April followed by an engagement at Los Angeles’ Mark Taper Forum, with additional cities to be announced soon.
The Buyer & Cellar team includes set design by Andrew Boyce, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Eric Southern and sound design by Stowe Nelson. The show officially opened on April 3, 2013 and has been extended several times.
