What’s a renowned diva to do with decades of memories that light the corners of her mind? And where to put the acres of memorabilia bursting the seams of her Malibu estate? If you’re Barbra Streisand, you enshrine them in a mini-mall in your basement where you can pretend to go shopping! Out-of-work actor Alex More can’t pass up the oddest of odd jobs—an offer to play shopkeeper for one tough customer who doesn’t let anyone rain on her parade. Soon it begins to take a toll on his patience, his love life, and his view of people (who need people). Jonathan Tolins’s “totally fictional” Off Broadway hit will have you rolling in the aisles and realizing why The New York Times called it “seriously funny — a remarkably sustained slice of absurdist whimsy,” and the New York Daily News declared, “This play deserves a hearty ‘Hello, gorgeous!’”
