BUYER & CELLAR National Tour Begins Performances Tomorrow at SHN Curran Theatre
New York's runaway hit comedy Buyer & Cellar, about a (fictional) Los Angeles actor who takes a job working in the (very real) basement shopping arcade of Barbra Streisand's Malibu estate, begins performances at San Francisco's SHN Curran Theatre (44 Geary Street) on Tuesday, August 19, 2014 for a strictly limited engagement through Sunday, August 31, 2014. Buyer & Cellar is written by Jonathan Tolins, directed by Stephen Brackett, and produced in San Francisco by Darren Bagert, Dan Shaheen and Ted Snowdon.
Buyer & Cellar swept the Best of 2013 Theater lists including The New York Times, Associated Press, The Hollywood Reporter, New York Post, New York Daily News, NPR, Newsday, The Huffington Post, AM New York, The New York Observer, The Advocate, The Daily Beast, Entertainment Weekly, NBC New York, Playbill, Towleroad, Gay City News and Time Out New York. Buyer & Cellar won the Drama Desk Award, Lucille Lortel Award and Actors' Equity Foundation's Clarence Derwent Award.
The critically-acclaimed comedy will then play the Dallas City Performance Hall from Wednesday, September 3, 2014 through Saturday, September 6, 2014 as well as additional cities including a four-week engagement at Toronto's Panasonic Theatre from Wednesday, November 12, 2014 through Thursday, November 30, 2014 (Casting TBD).
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 New York's Barrow Street Theatre where it opened June 24, 2013. After a record-breaking 466 performances at the Barrow Street Theatre, Buyer & Cellar played its final performance in New York on July 27, 2014.
Buyer & Cellar will have its London premiere in spring 2015.
