Emberlight’s 2023 season features our first full theatrical production — Buyer & Cellar, an acclaimed one-man play by Jonathan Tolins. The deliciously witty story follows Alex, an out-of-work, aspiring actor hired for a mysterious job at the home of the legendary Barbra Streisand. As he begins his job, Alex falls deeper into the rabbit hole of fame and celebrity when he meets and befriends the great lady herself. Directed by Colton Pometta and starring Emberlight Artistic Director Miles Mykkanen, Buyer & Cellar examines life and work relationships on opposite sides of the red carpet.

Buyer & Cellar premiered at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in New York City on April 2, 2013 with Michael Urie. The New York Times called the play a “seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy” and Entertainment Weekly raved, “Hilarious! Beyond brilliant.”
