Ugly Betty star Michael Urie will perform Jonathan Tolins’ hilarious play Buyer & Cellar in a live stream performance from the living room of his apartment.
Urie originated the role of Alex More in the one-man play off-Broadway in 2013, later taking the show on tour and to the Meniere Chocolate Factory in London.
His performance is considered the gold standard for the play which follows a struggling out-of-work actor’s experience working in Barbara Streisand’s fantasy shop in the basement of her Malibu mansion
The event, benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund, will appear on Broadway.com and the Broadway.com YouTube channel on 19 April 2020 at 8:00pm ET US.
The play, a fan favourite with the LGBT+ community, was due to be staged at London’s Above The Stag Theatre this March starring EastEnders actor Aaron Sidwell.
