Congratulations to Lab alum Stephen Brackett (Writer/Director Lab 2009) on his success with Buyer & Cellar starring Michael Urie, which is now playing at Barrow Street Theatre and has just been extended through Aug 31.

“An irresistible play from the most peculiar of fictitious premises — an underemployed Los Angeles actor goes to work in Barbra Streisand’s Malibu basement — allowing the playwright to ruminate with delicious wit and perspicacity on the solitude of celebrity, and the melancholy that lurks beneath narcissism. In the capable hands of the director Stephen Brackett, this seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy creates the illusion of a stage filled with multiple people, all of them with their own droll point of view.”  – The New York Times
