Michael Urie stars in Buyer & Cellar

Michael Urie, best known for his role on “Ugly Betty”  has tackled a new comedy by Jonathan Tolins and has hit it out of the ballpark.  BUYER & CELLAR tells the tale of a young actor living in Los Angeles who goes to work in Barbra Streisand’s basement that in reality, is a mini mall.


Screen Shot 2013-12-12 at 2.46.22 PMThis 90 minute show is filled to the brim with clever writing and clear distinction between the handful of characters the single actor (Urie) is portraying.  The intimate space was pure white; white walls, a few chairs, a bench, and tea pot.  As Stephen Sondheim says “less is more” ; very true and pertinent for this play.  Urie carried the one man show well and the audience laughed along with the interesting interactions he had with Streisand.  It had moments of joy, frustration, longing and hurt.  It truly encapsulated the human heart and relationships.


Instead of giving too much away, I suggest seeing and experiencing BUYER & CELLAR for yourself.  For more information check out: http://www.buyerandcellar.com/
