Picture this. Barbra Streisand builds a fake mall in the basement of her Malibu home and fills the shops with an astounding personal collection of costumes, shoes, dolls, and antiques. This part is true. “Instead of just storing my things in the basement, I can make a street of shops and display them.” -Barbra Streisand to Harper’s Bazaar. Enter our fictional character, Alex, a struggling actor, who becomes the only employee hired to staff the “shoppes” and work the frozen yogurt machine. With his riotously sharp wit and sales persona at the ready, Alex awaits a visit from the ultimate customer – the “Funny Girl” herself! Buyer and Cellar is an outrageous comedy about diva-land, the price of fame and the oddest of odd jobs.
“Frothy and hilarious, satisfyingly seasoned with treachery, bitchery, idolatry, and punctured celebrity hero-worship.“ -The New Yorker
