“Buyer & Cellar”

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Playwright Jonathan Tolins talks about his play “Buyer & Cellar,” along with Michael Urie, who stars in it. It’s about a  struggling actor in L.A., who takes a job working in the Malibu basement of a megastar. One day, the Lady Herself comes downstairs. It feels like real bonding in the basement, but will their relationship ever make it upstairs? It’s playing at the Barrow Street Theater and has been extended through mid-October.

Jonathan Tolins and Michael Urie

While laughing like a nut last night at the supremely entertaining "Buyers & Cellars" by Jonathon Tollins performed by the superb Michael Urie, I felt the pathos conveyed by the comedy. This is one of the very best one-man shows ever! Run!

I saw the play last week... it was ten times better than I expected. Mr. Urie is excellent...it's astounding that he can keep up that pace for 90 minutes! If you haven't already... go!
