An out of work actor is hired for a mysterious job at an undisclosed location – and finds himself working in Barbra Streisand’s legendary street of shops beneath her Malibu home, full of her memorabilia.
Soon he strikes up a rapport with Barbra herself. Is it real friendship, or something else?
A big hit in New York, London and Australia, Jonathan Tolins’ Buyer & Cellar is a hilarious, bitchy and exuberant fantasy about fame.
Aaron’s career began at 18 when he was cast in the BBC’s long-running drama EastEnders playing the role of Steven Beale.
Aaron’s theatre credits include Macduff in Macbeth (Salomons Estate, Tunbridge Wells); Henry V in Henry V (The Barn Theatre, Cirencester); UK Tour of Wicked as Fiyero and Johnny in Green Day’s American Idiot (Arts Theatre, London).
His TV highlights include Steven Beale in EastEnders, Doctors (BBC), Lewis in The Nephilim and Blood Army.
