Michael Urie's BUYER & CELLAR National Tour Starts Final Three Weeks in Chicago
BUYER & CELLAR, starring the original New York star Michael Urie ("Ugly Betty"), enters its final three weeks at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E. Chestnut). The first national tour for BUYER & CELLAR launched in Chicago and the six-week engagement will end June 15, 2014 before continuing on its National Tour across North America.
Producers Darren Bagert ("Of Mice and Men," "The Glass Menagerie"), Dan Shaheen ("Peter and the Starcatcher," "The Fantasticks"), Ted Snowdon ("A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder," "Spring Awakening") and Daryl Roth ("Kinky Boots," "Love, Loss, and What I Wore") brought this hilarious new comedy to Chicago.
Alex More has a story to tell. A struggling actor in L.A., Alex takes a job working in the mall in Barbra Streisand's Malibu basement. One day, the Lady Herself comes downstairs to play. It feels like real bonding in the basement, but will their relationship ever make it upstairs? BUYER & CELLAR is an outrageous comedy about the price of fame, the cost of things, and the oddest of odd jobs.
BUYER & CELLAR had its world premiere in April 2013 at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, where it received rave reviews and played a sold-out, extended run before transferring to the Barrow Street Theatre where it opened June 24, 2013 and continues to break box office records starring CBS' "NCIS: Los Angeles" star Barrett Foa. The play recouped its initial investment faster than any Off-Broadway show and recently won the 2014 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show.
