EVERYONE LOVES BUYER & CELLAR!
"A great show! Deconstructs Streisand's fantasy world in a brilliant exegesis of her films and career. Of course this has more to do with fame, fantasy, entertainment, and persona than it does with the actual Streisand, and that's what elevates it above a witty take on the idea of the public persona." -James Franco
"Everybody go see this play! I really was knocked out by this play. Go see it!"-Andy Cohen
"You must see Buyer & Cellar if you haven't yet!!!!!" -Bernadette Peters
"It goes down as easily and tastily as lemon sorbet, and the only pain in your stomach it creates is the kind that comes from laughing too hard. Perfect summer fare! Nutritious, too. As profound as a [seemingly] light entertainment can be!" -Ben Brantley, The New York Times
