Buyer & Cellar officially opened Off-Broadway June 24, 2013, after previews that began June 18 at the Barrow Street Theatre. Urie ("Ugly Betty," Angels in America, The Temperamentals) created the role of Alex in the hit solo show that played an extended Off-Broadway engagement.
Urie is currently headlining the national tour of the production. The L.A. engagement officially opens July 13. Performances continue through Aug. 17 as part of the Center Theatre Group season.
The tour is also set to play San Francisco and Dallas. Buyer & Cellar will have its London premiere in spring 2015.
Stephen Brackett directs the production, which is billed this way: "Alex More has a story to tell. A struggling actor in L.A., he takes a job working in the Malibu basement of a beloved mega-superstar. 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."
The set design for Buyer & Cellar is by Andrew Boyce; costume design is by Jessica Pabst; lighting design is by Eric Southern; sound design is by Stowe Nelson.
