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.
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.
