A struggling L.A. actor, canned from Disneyland, takes a gig working in the Malibu basement mall of a mega-superstar. Alex isn’t that big of a Barbra Streisand queen, but when Her Majesty Herself shows up, the bonding begins!
“Frothy and hilarious, satisfyingly seasoned with treachery, bitchery, idolatry, and punctured celebrity hero-worship.” —The New Yorker
“Jonathan Tolins has concocted an irresistible one-man play … seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy.” —The New York Times
