Through August 31 - Buyer & Cellar at the Curran. Most people will know Michael Urie from Ugly Betty (I only recently started streaming old episodes myself and find it delightful TV candy), but his impressive stage chops are on full display in this one-actor show written by Jonathan Tolins. Urie plays Alex, a stereoptypical struggling Los Angeles actor who takes an odd gig indeed: manning a "mall" of memorabilia in Barbra Streisand's basement. While Barbra's mall is real Alex and his tale are pure fiction, though Urie is so effortlessly charming he'll convince you otherwise. Like Alex I'm no Barbra queen, and I don't think I would have cared about the story much at all had it been delivered by any other actor. But Urie really sells it, and hilariously too.
