The Old Globe announced that due to high ticket demand its new production of “Buyer & Cellar” that begins preview performances Saturday will be extended through May 10.

Broadway veteran David Turner stars in Jonathan Tolins‘ one-man comedy about an out-of-work actor who takes a job as curator of Barbra Streisand’s memorabilia in the basement of her Malibu estate.

The New York Times called the “totally fictional” off-Broadway hit “seriously funny – a remarkably sustained slice of absurdist whimsy.”

“’Buyer & Cellar’ is one of those wonderful plays that comes at you with a lot of laughs and then sneaks up on you with deep things to think about,” said Old Globe Artistic Director Barry Edelstein. “Jonathan Tolins is one of the funniest playwrights out there, and he just nails that crazy Los Angeles world where the struggling actors and the movie stars — the Queen Bees and the wannabes — somehow mingle side by side.

Preview performances run through Wednesday, and opening night is Thursday at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online or by phone at (619) 23-GLOBE.
