Jonathan Tolins' acclaimed Off-Broadway comedy Buyer & Cellar is reportedly coming to London next year.

The one-man play tells the story of Alex More, an unemployed actor who gets the unusual job of manning Barbra Streisand's personal shopping mall, which is located in her basement.

It had its world premiere in April 2013 at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre, where it played an extended run before transferring to the Off-Broadway Barrow Street Theatre, where it recently posted closing notices.

According to press material for the show, "Buyer & Cellar will open in London in Spring 2015. Full details to be announced shortly."

Drama Desk Award winner Michael Urie (Ugly Betty) originated the role of Alex and is starring in the show's current US tour.
