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
Reviews & Ratings
A “play within a play”, _Curtains _takes place at Boston’s Colonial Theatre in 1959. It’s the opening night of “Robin’ Hood of the Old West” and this new musical could be a smash hit, if it weren’t for the show’s incredibly untalented leading lady. When she is murdered during the curtain call, Lieutenant Frank Cioffi is summoned to conduct an investigation. The lure of the theater soon becomes irresistible to the stage-struck detective and he finds himself just as dedicated to making the show a hit, as to solving the murder.
