Sometimes work is just fun.
I attended the birthday party for Michael Urie, star of Buyer and Cellar now playing at the Barrow Street Theatre on Wednesday.
|Yes, that's me with Vanessa Williams.|
|Shalita Grant, producer Pat Addiss and me.|
|Cuba Gooding, Jr.|
Buyer and Cellar, starring Urie (“Ugly Betty”), written by Jonathan Tolins, and directed by Stephen Brackett, is playing an open-ended run at the Barrow Street Theatre with tickets on sale through Oct. 13. It's a comedy about Alex More (Urie), a struggling actor in LA 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? (kind of appropriate that this party at Tony's was downstairs.....)
Buyer and Cellar plays Tuesday through Sunday at 7:30 pm; Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 pm at the Barrow Street Theatre, 27 Barrow St., east of Seventh Avenue South. There will be no performance on Tuesday, Sept. 3, and a special matinee added on Wednesday, Sept. 4, at 2:30 pm.
