Buyer & Cellar

A Barbra Streisand shopping extravaganza.

January 19 – March 3, 2019
In the Ellyn Bye Studio

“Seriously funny … both Barbra lovers and haters will be sold.”  —The New York Times

An outrageous comedy about the price of fame and the oddest of odd jobs. Alex, a struggling actor in Los Angeles, finds himself working in Barbra Streisand's private shopping mall (yes, Barbra has her own shopping mall). With his riotously sharp wit and shop clerk persona ready, Alex awaits a visit from the ultimate customer, the “Funny Girl” herself. Nick Cearley (Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors) returns to The Armory as Alex.

Run Time
