Barbra Streisand owns a lot of stuff. Like a lot of stuff. So much stuff, in fact, that she's transformed the entire basement of her multi-million-dollar mansion into a full blown personal shopping mall. And it's in that personal shopping mall that a young actor finds himself working, in an acclaimed new production at the MTC.
Debuting at the Melbourne Arts Centre following successful runs in London and New York, the Australian premiere of Jonathan Tolin's Buyer and Cellar stars Ash Flanders as Alex More, an out-of-work actor who applies for a job as a shop assistant, only to discover the shop is located beneath Babs's Malibu home. What follows is a camp one-man show about friendship, fame and the strangest day job you could possibly imagine.
