BBT brings 'Buyer and Cellar' to summer lineup with tonight's opening

Breckenridge Backstage Theatre adds another show to its summer season with tonight's opening of the award-winning comedy "Buyer and Cellar."

The production is billed as an elegant, funny and intimate experience between actor and audience, and Jonathan Tolins's off-Broadway hit is sure to have audiences rolling in the aisles and realizing why the New York Times called it "seriously funny — a remarkably sustained slice of absurdist whimsy."

Josh Rigo, currently featured as Carmen Ghia in Breckenridge Backstage Theatre's "The Producers," plays Alex, a chatty and engaging character able to poke fun at himself and the odd-job situation he finds himself in.

Rigo returns to BBT after being part of last summer's "Hairspray" at the Riverwalk Center. He also is an award-winning, up-and-coming actor whose work has been seen across the Front Range in shows from "The Last Five Years" to "Hair."

The production for "Buyer and Cellar" is helmed by BBT artistic director Christopher Willard. Lighting design is by summer production designer Jessica Buttery, while Willard handles the sound and projection design and stage management is by Lexi Holtzer.
