Buyer & Cellar
Written by Jonathan Tolins
June 18 & 19 - 7:30 PM
Streaming 2 Nights Only!
A virtual return engagement of the previous season's off-Broadway comedy hit in Theatre 514. Tim Janovsky recreates his award winning performance for two shows only in celebration of Pride month! Alex More has a story to tell. A struggling actor in L.A., he takes a job working at the mall in Barbra Streisand’s Malibu basement. One day, the Lady Herself comes downstairs to play. It feels like real bonding in the basement, but will their relationship ever make it upstairs? BUYER & CELLAR is an outrageous comedy about the price of fame, the cost of things, and the oddest of odd jobs. The play is fictitious... the basement mall is real.
They're Playing Our Song
Written by Neil Simon, Lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager, & Music by Marvin Hamlisch
July 23 & 24, 30 & 31 - 7:30 PM
July 25 - 2:00 PM
Stay tuned for more details!
Broadway’s legendary playwright Neil Simon teamed up with the brilliant composer Marvin Hamlisch to create “They’re Playing Our Song”, a funny, romantic show about an established composer and his relationship with a zany aspiring young female lyricist. At work and at play, this is a winning couple whose professional and personal successes and difficulties lead to one hilarious scene after another. Any resemblance to Hamlisch and his one time partner and lyricist Carol Bayer Sager is completely intentional.
