A Comedy by Jonathan Tolins

Directed by David Runzo

AREA PREMIERE – Alex More is a gay, out-of-work actor, who has just been fired from a job as a costume character at Disneyland when he lands a job as the lone employee of the shopping mall in the basement of Barbra Streisand’s Malibu home. 

ROLE - One Man that can play age 24-40. This is a one-person show which requires a dynamic presence, great comic timing and the ability to embody multiple characters. Ability to do a "Barbra" imitation not required. She is implied, more than imitated. Performer Stipend: $1,000. Performances March 10 - 25. 

Because this is a one-person show, the rehearsal schedule is flexible and can involve days and/or evenings. Rehearsals will start January 28.
