The producers of Jonathan Tolins' Buyer & Cellar, which stars Michael Urie (“Ugly Betty”), announced July 22 that the one-man show is now playing an open-ended run at the Barrow Street Theatre.
Tickets are now on sale through Oct. 13.
Stephen Brackett directs the critically acclaimed comedy.
"Alex More has a story to tell," according to press notes. "A struggling actor in L.A., Alex takes a job working in the mall in Barbra Streisand's Malibu basement. One day, the Lady Herself comes downstairs to play. It feels like real bonding in the basement, but will their relationship ever make it upstairs? Buyer & Cellar is an outrageous comedy about the price of fame, the cost of things, and the oddest of odd jobs."
Buyer & Cellar is the recipient of the 2013 Drama Desk, Clarence Derwent and Off-Broadway Alliance awards. The play made its world premiere in April 2013 at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater before reopening at the Barrow Street Theatre.
Show times are Tuesday through Sunday at 7:30 PM and Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 PM.
Barrow Street Theatre is located at 27 Barrow Street, east of Seventh Avenue South. Tickets are $75 and may be purchased by phoning (212) 868-4444 or by visiting www.smarttix.com.

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.
