Michael Urie Plays Barbra Streisand in Buyer and Cellar

Alex More has a story to tell.  A
struggling actor in L.A., Alex takes a job working in the Malibu
basement of  beloved megastar, Barbra Streisand! 

(Barbra’s basement is FULL of her 
collections and resembles a mini mall!)

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?

performance. I spoke to Michael about his work on the play, his choice of gay
roles, and his personal feelings on the lady of the house.
