About This Show

7 April - 29 April, 2023
Director: Jude Hansen

A delightfully comic solo show about the price of fame and the value of things. Inspired by Barbra Streisand’s coffee-table book, “My Passion for Design,” which shows off her personal subterranean emporium.

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
