This edition: "Buyer & Cellar" and a Broadway UpdateTweet
Original tape date: March 29, 2013.
First aired: April 20, 2013.
Our guests are actor Michael Urie and playwright Jonathan Tolins of "Buyer & Cellar," Tolins's new comedy at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, inspired by an unlikely subject, Barbra Streisand's lavish coffee table book, "My Passion for Design." In this ingenious play, Urie gives a bravura solo performance as the out-of-work actor hired to maintain a private mall of shops Streisand has created for herself in the basement of her barn, containing her vast hoard of fabulous stuff.
Also on the program, we welcome Adam Feldman of "Time Out New York," and "Backstage's" Suzy Evans, for a "Broadway Update." As the New York theater season draws to a close with a "glut" of new openings (15 Tony-eligible shows in the month of April), they survey the terrain and point out the brightest and darkest spots on the horizon.
