See Buyer and Cellar at Theater Nova

Gentle reader, you should see Sebastian Gerstner in Theater Nova's Buyer and Cellar. It is a hilarious one-man show about an unemployed actor who lands a gig working in the fake mall in Barbra Streisead's basement. Yes, Ms. Streisand has a fake mall in her basement. Watch the clip of her promoting her design book on Oprah.  Buyer and Cellar dares to ask: "what if someone worked in that basement mall?"

Sebastian does an outstanding job in the show. I couldn't help but feel like I was spending a lovely evening with a friend recounting his halarious story of working for Ms. Streisand. Beyond the great acting, I think Jonathan Tolins' play really does a great job capturing our complex feelings about Ms. Streisand: a talented performer who has a reputation for being a bit controlling at times. 

Gentle reader, I can't recommend Buyer and Cellar enough. Theater Nova is doing a great job making a theater space at Yellow Barn. Also, tickets are pay what you can, so you really have no excuse not to go.
