Very funny and Michael Urie did a fantastic job portraying several characters with nothing more than a change of voice and posture.

Quotes & Highlights

Buyer & Cellar is platonically perfect summer fare. It goes down as easily and tastily as lemon sorbet, and the only pain in your stomach it creates is the kind that comes from laughing too hard.” -The New York Times
“The show is a crowd-pleaser, and it doesn’t take long to figure out why: most audiences are reacting to its charming narrative surface. But there’s more going on than that.” -The New Yorker
“Alex is played by Michael Urie, a performer of enormous charm and warmth who can also whip out fine dramatic acting when required … if you read between the one-liners, Tolins has smart things to say about conspicuous consumption and inspiration.” -Time Out New York
“Although Tolins’ script plays most directly to gay fans of a certain age, in Urie’s wildly gesticulating hands this show will go down like butta’, even for those with passing interest in Babs.” -Entertainment Weekly (A-)
