Buyer & Cellar
Presenter: Pittsburgh Public Theater
Barbra Streisand's coffee table book, My Passion for Design, inspired this hilarious fictional account of what goes on in her Malibu estate's basement, which has become an arcade of shops displaying the fabulous stuff the superstar has collected. Alex is the clerk of this mall whose only customer is Babs herself, and the nature of their relationship is both friend and faux. Entertainment Weekly says "This show will go down like butta!"
