The Wilton Playshop is presenting Buyer & Cellar, a special offering under the Playshop’s “Applause Series.” Directed by Al Recchia with Chad Shipley as “Alex More,” the play will run for one weekend only from March 9-11. Tickets are now on sale.
What would happen if an out-of-work, aspiring actor was hired to man the private basement mall in Barbra Streisand’s house? That was playwright Jonathan Tolins’ question after reading Barbra Streisand’s architectural book, detailing the setup of her own private mall complete with a dress shop, doll shop, and working yogurt machine, in the basement of her home. Buyer & Cellar is the hilarious comedic answer. The one-man show tells the story of Alex More, who after taking the gig working in the basement mall, develops an unlikely and hilarious friendship with Streisand. Buyer & Cellar is an outrageous comedy about the price of fame, the cost of things, and the oddest of odd jobs.
Performances are scheduled for Friday, March 9 and Saturday, March 10 at 8 p.m.; and Sunday, March 11 at 2 p.m..
Tickets cost $25 for adults, and $20 for seniors and students. To purchase tickets, visit the Wilton Playshop website.
