" A wild ride with an incredible actor in a fictional Kafkaesk

review by Ed Vincent
Michael Urie is charming, talented, brings the character of Alex More to life for the entire show. He charms us with the addition of several other characters at the same time, each with impeccable skill and art. His timing and delivery are phenomenal and the writing by Jonathan Tolins is insanely good-I bought the book by Streisand as soon as I got home.
Urie's facial mannerisms and characters will make your insides laugh with vigor, so please go to the bathroom before the show starts or else.

Everyone, yes Everyone stood at the end and applauded for the show!!!!
MICHAEL URIE, star of TV's "Ugly Betty" and Broadway's How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, brings his Drama Desk and Clarence Derwent Award winning performance as Alex More to Chicago in the critically acclaimed smash hit comedy Buyer & Cellar. Alex is a struggling actor in L.A. who takes a job working in the mall in Barbra Streisand's Malibu basement. 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? Written by Jonathan Tolins and directed by Stephen Brackett, BUYER & CELLAR is an outrageous comedy about the price of fame, the cost of things, and the oddest of odd jobs. BUYER & CELLAR swept the Best of 2013 Theater lists including The New York Times, Associated Press, The Hollywood Reporter, New York Post, NPR, The Huffington Post, The Advocate, The Daily Beast, Entertainment Weekly, NBC New York, and Time Out New York. The New York Times' Charles Isherwood raves Urie gives "a tour-de-force performance," with Ben Brantley adding "I tell you to GO."
