Buyer & Cellar
by: Jonathan Tolins
August 11 - August 19, 2017
directed by Kevin Taylor
produced by Sue Keenan
This one-man production stars Kevin Taylor as Alex More, an out-of-work Los Angeles actor waiting for his big break. Through a friend, Alex learns of a job opportunity working as a the sole employee in a mall. But this isn't just an ordinary mall; it's located in the basement of Barbra Streisand's Malibu estate.
In 2010, Ms. Streisand published a book, My Passion for Design, detailing her efforts to design her perfect oasis. She was inspired by a decorative arts museum in Delaware to design the basement of her barn to resemble a shopping mall that would hold her lifelong accumulation of rare collectibles. (This is true.) When Tolins heard of this - and read the book - he wondered, "How'd you like to be the guy who works down there?" And thus Tolins wrote a one-man show about an actor, Alex, who does just that. But Alex soon finds out that working for the diva herself isn't all he had hoped it would be.
Come spend an evening with Alex as he entertains you with his experience in this charming comedy critics have called "a fantasy so delightful you wish it were true."
