Fact: Barbra Streisand’s Malibu mansion is not only the subject of her book, My Passion for Design, but it also houses an indoor private shopping mall styled to evoke a picturesque turn-of-the-twentieth-century-street. Here, Jonathan Tolin’s play departs into the realm of “what if.” What if a struggling actor were hired as the only employee of this shopping mall? When the diva herself finally comes calling, something like friendship develops. But can a star that burns this bright ever really be touched? Like a voyeuristic fantasy-come-true, this is an irreverent and surprising exploration of fame and its consequences.
