"Jonathan Tolins has concocted an irresistible one-man play from the most peculiar of fictitious premisesan underemployed Los Angeles actor goes to work in Barbra Streisand's Malibu, Calif., basementallowing the playwright to ruminate with delicious wit and perspicacity on the solitude of celebrity, the love-hate attraction between gay men and divas, and the melancholy that lurks beneath narcissism. This seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy creates the illusion of a stage filled with multiple people, all of them with their own droll point of view." NY Times
