Michael Urie, of Ugly Betty and Broadway fame (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying), stars in this award-winning comedy about a struggling actor with a very odd job. In Buyer & Cellar Alex (Urie) works in the basement "mall" of Barbra Streisand's Malibu home, essentially selling her own collectibles back to her. When the diva descends downstairs, she and Alex form an unlikely -- and unstable -- friendship. Buyer & Cellar is a hilarious comedy about the cost of things, and more importantly, the true cost of fame. Playwright Jonathan Tolins (The Twilight of the Golds, Secrets of the Trade) reteams with Urie for this production, after working with him on his latest TV series, CBS' Partners. Learn More

My wife and I laughed all the way through along with the rest of the audience. The story was very funny and very well performed. One has to find sex and politics even at the local levels to be amusing to appreciate this show, but I don't think that leaves out too many people. I am going to run out to vote for Clark... or was it the other guy...?
Theatre Seven presents the Chicago premiere of Josh Tobiessen’s rip-roaring political satire.
The race for mayor is coming down to the wire, and Adam’s activist girlfriend, Brenda, won’t stop reminding him to vote. When Brenda heads out for one last day on the stump, Adam gets a visit from his deadbeat sister, her anarchist boyfriend and the opposing mayoral candidate himself. Between a kidnapping conspiracy, a sack of Molotov cocktails, a sex-for-votes exchange and one severely stoned ecoterrorist, will Adam ever make it to the voting booth?
Directed by Brant Russell
