There’s a new mall employee at Babs’ Malibu home. Broadway veteran Christopher J. Hanke begins performances in the off-Broadway hit Buyer & Cellar on March 18, taking over for Michael Urie, who will continue in the role on tour.
A former Broadway.com video blogger, Hanke was last seen on Broadway in the revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. His additional credits include Cry-Baby, Rent and Hair at the Delacorte Theatre in Central Park.
Buyer & Cellar tells the story of Alex Moore, a struggling actor in L.A., who lands an offbeat job working in the basement of a certain Hollywood legend (hint: she’s a Funny Girl.) The engagement is currently playing at off-Broadway’s Barrow Street Theatre.
