Jason Gould acted in play by author of Streisand-skewering “Buyer and Cellar”


A new play by Jonathan Tolins  at New York’s Rattlestick Theater tells the imaginary tale of a young, struggling actor who is hired by Barbra Streisand to mind the cozy row of shops she had installed in the basement of one of the buildings in her lavish compound on the California coast. I have not yet seen the play, called Buyer and Cellar, but I’m certainly looking forward to it. Urie–famous for his role on Ugly Betty–was impressive a few years ago in Jon Marans’ The Temperamentals (a drama about the very early days of the American gay-rights movement).

The subject matter of Buyer and Cellar has brought the show some attention, and the reviews of the play I’ve seen have been quite favorable. Urie, in particular, has received complimentary notices, for playing all the roles in the play–not just the protagonist but also Streisand’s husband James Brolin, and…The Lady Herself.

“You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows…”

Bill Ayers
Bob Dylan, Subterranean Homesick Blues, 1965 + Bill Ayers, 2013 = this.

Exclusive Bill Ayers Portrait Session at MCA, Chicago for Getty Images, by Michael Roman.

April 5 update:  Is it really an “exclusive” when you barge into an already ongoing actual exclusive interview without as much as tapping the camera man / reporter (that’d be me) on the shoulder before walking into the frame asking questions?  Isn’t that against journalistic standards and practices?

Not according to William Kelly of

“I crossed paths with Ayers recently,” Kelly writes.  “It isn’t that hard to find a sixties radical in Chicago if you are looking for one.”
He granted this EXCLUSIVE impromptu interview:
KELLY: What do you think of Rahm Emanuel’s plan to close the schools?
AYERS: Rahm Emanuel in an absolute right-wing troglodyte.  Closing the schools is the worst thing he has done. Of all the terrible dreadful stuff he has done, this is absolutely the worst.”

Check out the EXCLUSIVE “impromptu” report at the 4:15 mark where Bill agrees to answer questions after first saying “Ha. Who are you?”


And now Part 2 of my exclusive.
