Buyer & Cellar (Live on stage) - July, 2016 - Professional Digital Video
Jonathan Tolins' play has a unique premise: An actor is hired to play a make-believe store proprietor in a faux mall that superstar Barbra Streisand has built in the basement of her mansion to store all her belongings. Urie plays not only the actor, but Streisand, his own mother, and all the other people he comes in contact with at the bizarre gig.
Urie, who also appeared on the ABC series Ugly Betty, and won the Clarence Derwent Award for his performance in Buyer & Cellar, originated the performance Off-Broadway in 2013 in a production that ran more than a year. Stephen Brackett directed the production on a virtually bare stage.
Urie and Brackett recreated the performance June 14-July 3 at Westport Country Playhouse in Westport, CT, where it was taped here.
