about

Alex More has a story to tell. A struggling actor in L.A, he takes a job working in the Malibu basement of a beloved megastar. 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? BUYER & CELLAR is an outrageous comedy about the price of fame, the cost of things, and the oddest of odd jobs.

"Jonathan Tolins has concocted an irresistible one-man play from the most peculiar of fictitious premises...This seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy creates the illusion of a stage filled with multiple people, all of them with their own droll point of view." -THE NEW YORK TIMES

"A gorgeous play: funny and beautifully observed and richly insightful." -Moises Kaufman

"Tolins's writing is smart, sharp, and hilarious-and he paints a vivid picture that even a perfectionist like Barbra would have to applaud." -James Lapine

"Tolins's writing is smart, sharp, and hilarious-and he paints a vivid picture that even a perfectionist like Barbra would have to applaud." -James Lapine"BUYER & CELLAR is a delight, like a small and perfect short story which Mr. Capote might have dashed off for ESQUIRE once upon a time, to be read on a beach or train. Wrapped up in its bittersweet arc, is the story of a young man who grows a little wiser and smarter about love, illusion and fool's gold in an imaginary playland on the edge of the Pacific, where dreams are broken as easily (and as pleasurably) as a meringue melting under the tongue. And like any wonderful short story, it's bigger than it seems, and resonates long after you leave the theatre, which I did, smiling, and also a little sad at just how true it was." -Jon Robin Baitz"A gorgeous play: funny and beautifully observed and richly insightful." -Moises Kaufman"Jonathan Tolins has concocted an irresistible one-man play from the most peculiar of fictitious premises...This seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy creates the illusion of a stage filled with multiple people, all of them with their own droll point of view" -THE NEW YORK TIMES"BUYER & CELLAR is not only irresistibly entertaining, it's a superbly well-written and surprisingly moving play. Jonathan Tolins is a master, of show business wisdom, all things Barbra, and the human heart. We're talking bliss." -Paul Rudnick
