The revelation that Barbra Streisand built a private shopping mall, complete with a doll shop, vintage clothing atelier and candy store, in the basement of her Malibu home has inspired many reactions -- but none as ingenious as Buyer & Cellar. In this hysterical comedy, playwright Jonathan Tolins spins a bit of Babs' trivia into a fictional one-man show of real depth and heart. Follow struggling thespian Alex More as he takes a job as the sole employee of Streisand's wonder emporium. As the two develop a rapport, you wonder whether their basement bonding will ever move upstairs to real friendship. Nick Cearley portrays six characters in the regional premiere of Buyer & Cellar at Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati.
Running time is one hour and 30 minutes, with no intermission.
