From The New York Times, Buyer & Cellar is “an irresistible one-man play from the most peculiar of fictitious premises—an underemployed Los Angeles actor goes to work in Barbra Streisand’s Malibu, California basement—allowing the playwright to ruminate with delicious wit and perspicacity on the solitude of celebrity, the love-hate attraction between gay men and divas, and the melancholy that lurks beneath narcissism. 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.”
According to Bartholet: “Alex, the main character I play, is entranced by a larger-than-life pop star diva. This is a familiar dynamic for gay men, so Fire Island seems a particularly rich place for relatability. He’s also an actor with a boyfriend who has gay showbiz-encyclopedia knowledge and passion—the gays will get nearly every joke!”
