BUYER & CELLAR
CELEBRATES 100TH PERFORMANCE
AT BARROW STREET THEATRE TONIGHT

Friday, September 20 – The hit comedy Buyer & Cellar will play its 100th performance tonight at the Barrow Street Theatre, where it is currently playing an open-ended run and continues to break box office records.

 

Anyone who has worked in theatre has learned there is frequently just as much drama behind the proscenium as there is within it.  You always swear you are going to write down the stories, but then it’s onto the next show.  When you tell people about the actress who decides to have a melt-down at invited dress and says she can’t go on, and the director with Alzheimer’s who suggests we remedy it with “an injection,” they don’t believe it.  You can’t blame them.  But seriously, I’m not making that up, that actually happened.  There was a reason “Smash” was so addictive, you just can’t imagine that these things actually happen.
