"The premise is absurd. As this show readily admits, it couldn’t "possibly have happened with a person as famous, talented and litigious as Barbra Streisand." It’s brilliant all the same: the notion that the singer has a private shopping mall in the basement of her Malibu dream house and hires a struggling actor to man the shops. Rose Riordan directs this affectionately barbed Babs send-up." - Oregon Arts Watch
An outrageous comedy about the price of fame and the oddest of odd jobs. Alex, a struggling actor in Los Angeles, finds himself working in Barbra Streisand's private shopping mall (yes, Barbra has her own shopping mall). With his riotously sharp wit and shop boy persona ready, Alex awaits a visit from the ultimate customer, the “Funny Girl” herself. Nick Cearley (Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors) returns to The Armory as Alex.
