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 Hollywood and Broadway mega-star 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 the true cost of fame. Playwright Jonathan Tolins (The Twilight of the Golds, Secrets of the Trade) reunites with Urie for this production, after working with him on the TV series Partners. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
The original Broadway production of The Odd Couple ran for more than two years and 964 performances.
Set in a quintessential 8-room New York apartment, an unlikely pair of middle-aged roommates battle each other’s glaring quirks while being forced to reflect on their own. Oscar Madison, a carefree slob, and Felix Ungar, a neurotic neat freak, are thrown into sharing a home when their own are torn apart by divorce.
Reality sets in when Felix’s Mary Poppins lifestyle destroys the laid-back vibe of Oscar’s ultimate bachelor pad. This is a story of a friendship that defies all odds made its Broadway debut in 1965, won several Tony Award, including Best Play, and went on to great success in film and television.
“The Odd Couple is a face-paced, neurosis-filled brawl of a play,” says director Jim Ward. “Two friends have never been closer or farther apart – their polar opposite personalities fuel some of the most hysterical theater ever written.”
The cast includes Michael Lederman as Oscar Madison, Doug Mallon as Felix Ungar, Roxane Ashe as Cecily Pigeon, Patti Appel as Gwendolyn Pigeon, Steve Travis and Joe Guistano as Speed, John Szabo as Murray, Jack Weintraub as Roy, and Bob Mitton as Vinnie.
