Alex More has hit a career road block, when he catches a break and is hired for a mysterious job at an undisclosed location. That location? None other than the home of one of the greatest living legends, Barbra Streisand! What would happen if an out-of-work, aspiring actor was hired to man the private basement mall in Barbra Streisand’s house? That was playwright Jonathan Tolins’ question after reading Barbra Streisand’s architectural book, detailing the setup of her own private mall, complete with a dress shop, doll shop, and working yogurt machine, and Buyer and Cellar is a hilarious comedic answer. As Alex starts his job, he falls deeper into the rabbit hole of fame and celebrity as he meets and befriends the great Babs herself. But are they really friends, or is it simply a nice camaraderie between a boss and their employee? Buyer and Cellar is an extremely funny one-man show in which one supremely talented actor plays multiple roles, while striving to examine life on the other side of the red carpet.
