If you appreciate all things Barbra Streisand, you will enjoy this Hollywood actor’s comedic fantasy about managing the shopping mall at Ms. Streisand’s Malibu estate. The shops are real, and our main character runs them—in his imagination. “Buyer & Cellar” by Jonathan Tolins shares the delightful appeal of slipping into one’s own make-believe world to be near one’s idol.
Intrigued by Barbra Streisand’s 2010 coffee-table book “My Passion for Design,” Mr. Tolins created a witty one-man comedy narrated by main character Alex, a struggling actor in Los Angeles. Alex takes an imaginary job as private shopkeeper of the Main Street shops in the basement of Ms. Streisand’s Malibu home. The main perk of the fanciful job caring for the mega celebrity’s world-class collection of dolls, costumes, toys and furnishings: its only patron is the formidable Ms. Streisand.
Fans know their favorite star is coming up on her 80th birthday. And many know she is a world-class collector of antiques and furnishings. Join us at A.C.T. for Alex’s comedic, starry-eyed fantasy of meeting and working for the inimitable Ms. Streisand. Performances are April 8, 9, 10, 15, 17. Shows are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m.; Sunday matinees are at 3:00 p.m. You won’t be meeting Ms. Streisand, but your imagination will bathe in her legendary glow.
A.C.T. Studio Theatre is located in the Cedar Pointe Plaza, 2399 SE Ocean Blvd., Stuart. Reserved seating is $25. For tickets and information, please visit actstudiotheatre.com or call (772) 932-8880.
