The lastest episode of our podcast where we discuss a new piece of theatre over a slice of cheesecake.
By Kimberly Lew (Playwright/Blogger) with Erin Salvi
Yes, we have a new podcast for you guys to check out. But first things first: are you aware that Barbra Streisand has a mall in the basement of her dream mansion?? Like a whole street of Victorian shops of antiques, sweets, costumes, and ribbons on display-- all owned by the Funny Girl herself, but displayed as though it were a fancy promenade. If your mind is as blown as mine was when I found out this information, you'll need photographic evidence, and have no fear for there is a lot of it.
And as much as I wish I was bringing up Babs's mini mall just for funsies, it is also the genesis of the play we covered for our latest podcast. Buyer & Cellar, currently playing at The Rattlestick, imagines how things would shake out if our favorite Yentl hired someone to man her private playground through a one-man show starring the talented and wonderfully coiffed Michael Urie. We holed up at Bosie Tea Parlor to discuss this intriguing and hilarious play (and eat free pastries)! Click on the player above to find out more about Buyer & Cellar, our takes on Barbra, and whether or not the mall has a frozen yogurt station. We know inquiring minds want to know! (Warning: this podcast will contain spoilers)
*Also, since this recording, the run of this show has been extended until May 12-- get on it!
