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
I went to a Saturday matinee and street parking is fine. I would think that evening parking is also good. I know that one block away, on Pacific, there is plenty of parking because the block is industrial other than Globe Restaurant. A terrific restaurant and only one block away.The Habit of Art travel • Aug 18 2014 star this tip starred

Will Franken presents his first ever long-form holiday-themed love story, Dieter Und Sheila At The San Francisco International Youth Hostel – a story of thwarted romance between a shy Viennese entomology student and a promiscuous Australian girl of limited intelligence. Dieter longs to be close to Sheila, yet the blokes from Down Under, staying in the same hostel, have customary first dibs on her. All is unrequited frustration and confusion until the hostel’s resident psychiatrist, Dr. Herringbone, informs Dieter of the as yet little known “Australian Phenomenon of Sexual Propinquity” – namely, whereas two drops of mercury placed on a horizontal surface will invariably congeal into one substance, whenever an Australian girl takes up residency in the same hostel as young men from back home, she cannot resist the overpowering urge to have her supple thighs groped by them whilst laying on the sofa in the common area and drinking prodigious amounts of vodka. The only hope remaining for Dieter to win the hand of his beloved Sheila is to cease being AUSTRIAN and become AUSTRALIAN – with a little help from crusty Outback veteran and current SF hostel maintenance man Grit Dirtman. It’s a multi-character, multicultural romp of sex, romance, intelligence, culture, and hilarity. Slightly more vulgar than Rushmore, a bit less tender than Pygmalion, a tad more intellectual than Animal House, and just as bawdy as the Canterbury Tales – Dieter Und Sheila is a holiday treat not to be missed!
