Original Off-Broadway Production by Darren Bagert, Dan Shaheen and Ted Snowdon 

In the basement of a house on her Malibu estate, Barbra Streisand created a private fantasy world to display her accumulated tchotchkerai: a narrow cobblestoned “street” of boutiques, from an antique doll store and confectionery with its own taffy-making machine to a dress shop filled with favorite costumes from her films.

In a one-man comedy for which he won a Drama Desk Award, Michael Urie takes audiences inside this fascinating wonderland of a woman who grew up in a tiny Brooklyn apartment with only one doll. Playing a down-on-his-luck actor who lands a job as the mall clerk, as well as his agent, boyfriend, Barbra, her husband and housekeeper, Urie creates a poignant friendship with a superstar still scarred by a troubled childhood.

World premiere produced by Rattlestick Playwrights Theater
