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

I attended with my husband and three children, all three aged 16. At Intermission, my children's reactions ran from "I really like it" to "it's good" to "it's ok. Can I get a Snickers bar?" I reminded my one son what the premise of the show was to me (adaptation of a play written almost 400 years ago, original was with certain # of syllables and rhymed) and that part of attending theatre was an appreciation for the entire package, especially, in my opinion, the dialogue. By the end of the show, everyone was won over and I believe my three children all grew in their appreciation for language and the arts. It wasn't very difficult since they are in honors/AP courses and grew up in a very musical home, but I LOVED the overall learning experience for them. The acting was outstanding by the way! :)

This is a favorite play of mine and I loved the way Court and Charlie cast and directed this version. Elizabeth Ledo stole the show as Dorine and the rest of the cast was up to her caliber! I'm amazed this isn't selling out! Do go see it!
