Highlights From Buyer & Cellar Starring Michael Urie
Michael Urie stars in Jonathan Tolins' outrageous one-man comedy Buyer & Cellar. The production opens June 24 Off-Broadway at the Barrow Street Theatre after a spring 2013 run at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater. Urie plays Alex More, a struggling actor who takes an odd job in the basement of Barbra Streisand's home, where he meets and bonds with the icon. Will the bond carry over into real life, or is it meant for the basement only? Stephen Brackett directs. Read the Playbill story.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
