One-person plays either soar like an airplane making a smooth take-off or crash in a horrendous mess. That’s because the show’s weight is on the shoulders of one actor who is on stage for the entire length of a performance and has to engage and entertain the audience. And most importantly, never bore. Christopher Geary soared Saturday at Hanesbrand Theatre for Triad Stage’s production of “Buyer & Cellar,” a 2013 comedy written by Jonathan Tolins.
For a few brief minutes before the curtain rose, Calvin Morrow became the star of the show. With his B-1 U.S. Navy Band patch and Navy ribbons displayed on his blue suit, a beaming Morrow basked in cheers and applause from the Triad Stage audience. Gertrude Morrow joined the applause as her husband of 67 years stood on stage, a cane the only concession to his 93 years.
Don’t worry, the spelling of the word “cellar” in the play’s title is both correct and deliberate. The entire roughly 90 minutes of Jonathan Tolins’ 2013 comedy, “Buyer & Cellar,” takes place in a very special basement. Tolins tells the story of Alan More, a down-on-his-luck Los Angeles actor who winds up with a decidedly different job.
Fourteen months ago we moved to the North Carolina coast. Our friends ask why, with all the entertainment venues in our area, we travel four hours each way to Greensboro to see a play.
