Outings & Innings
“Buyer & Cellar” @ Lyric Stage Co. of Boston
When you’re an out-of-work L.A. actor, what better job could you imagine than being the sole employee of the “Great Mall of Malibu” — Barbra Streisand’s treasure-filled basement! “Buyer & Cellar” is a hilarious and surprisingly poignant tour-de-force for one actor who plays multiple characters including Oprah Winfrey, James Brolin, Bea Arthur, an imperious estate manager, and, of course, the Babs herself. Outings & Innings has half-priced tickets for Dec. 4 and Dec. 10 performances.
Go to Outings & Innings for details and tickets.
