Off Broadway Success ‘Buyer and Cellar’ Will Close in July

Buyer and Cellar,” one of the rare Off Broadway titles to prove successful enough to carve out a yearlong run and spawn a national tour, will shutter at the Barrow Street Theater in July.

The closing clears the way for the Scott Rudin-produced staging of Annie Baker’s “The Flick,” the Pulitzer-winning play that has been waiting in the wings for the Barrow Street to open up.

After a spring 2013 premiere at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, “Buyer and Cellar” opened at Barrow Street last June in a production starring Michael Urie (“Ugly Betty”), who currently appears in the touring production that’s now in Chicago and will move on to stops in L.A. and Toronto, among other cities. Christopher J. Hanke and current star Barrett Foa (pictured above) have also stepped into the solo show.

The well-received play by Jonathan Tolins tells a fictionalized tale about a man who is hired to work in the underground boutique in which Barbra Streisand displays her beloved acquisitions. Stephen Brackett directs.

“Buyer and Cellar” plays its final Off Broadway perf July 27. According to reps for the production, a London incarnation is gearing up for a spring 2015 bow.
