About the Show
A massive cult hit in New York that went on to a sell-out US tour, Jonathan Tolins’ Buyer and Cellar is a shopaholic’s binge and an adoring fan letter to Barbra Streisand.
Let’s be totally clear about this. The play is pure fiction, okay? Well, except of course, the part about a singing legend by the name of Barbra who has a passion for design. And, true, she does have a fabulous house in Malibu, and, yes, in her vast basement she has created her own shopping mall to display all her stuff. But the whole business about Alex, an out-of-work actor who takes a job looking after the mall, with dreams of serving its only customer – well, not a word of that is true. At least, not as far as we know!
Green Room Award-winner Ash Flanders stars in this affecting, funny, one-man extravaganza about fame and how it warps us all.
Presented by special arrangement with Darren Bagert, Dan Shaheen and Ted Snowdon.
