Starring Ugly Betty’s Michael Urie as the play’s sole actor Alex Moore, playwright Jonahtan Tolins and Director Stephen Brackett have created a 100-minute tour-de-force fictional play about an unemployed actor working in the basement of Barbra Streisand’s home. The one-man show has Alex Moore acting as a clerk at an underground mall with “shops” stocked with Ms. Streisand’s collections. And only she shops there.
The show, an off-Broadway comedy hit which debuted in April 2013, is now in the midst of a mini North American tour. It is a Top Critics pick from New York Times, Time Out NY, Entertainment Weekly and NY Magazine.
