“Hip Hip Hooray, the Hilarious BUYER & CELLAR moves to a larger theater!” -Peter Marks, The Washington Post
TOP CRITICS PICK: New York Times, Time Out NY, New York Magazine, Entertainment Weekly
"IRRESISTIBLE, DELICIOUS and WICKEDLY FUNNY!" -The New York Times
"Hilarious! Michael Urie is MASTERFUL!" -New York Magazine
"Fantastically funny!" - New York Post
"A fantasy so delightful you wish it were true." -The New Yorker
"An irresistible play from the most peculiar of fictitious premises — an underemployed Los Angeles actor goes to work in Barbra Streisand’s Malibu basement — allowing the playwright to ruminate with delicious wit and perspicacity on the solitude of celebrity, and the melancholy that lurks beneath narcissism. In the capable hands of the director Stephen Brackett and the wickedly charming actor Michael Urie, this seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy creates the illusion of a stage filled with multiple people, all of them with their own droll point of view." -The New York Times
"Spectacular. Beyond Brilliant. This show will go down like butta'!" -Entertainment Weekly
"Fantastically Funny. Its a Funny-Girl Babs inspired Comedy." -NY Post
World premiere produced by Rattlestick Playwrights Theater.

ALL TICKETS $10 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Sixth Inspiring Year begins 2011!

"Mr. Fischoff...sings the songs while accompanying himself on the piano and sprinkles in asides about Gauguin's life, illustrating it all with large reproductions of his canvases. By the show's end he has given the uninitiated an idea of Gauguin's methods and influence and touched on the artist's decision to leave his family, his fascination with Tahiti and other pivotal biographical points.
He seems to pour all his experience into the solo version of Savage Light, not to mention the skills he honed at Juilliard: he plays some of the songs one-handed while using the other hand to hold up a painting that illustrates the lyrics he's singing."
- Neil Genzlinger, NY TIMES, February 15th, 2008

Longest running Off-Broadway musical in years.
By composer of classic hits "Lazy Day" and "98.6"
George Fischoff's new musical Gauguin/ Savage Light, soon to be entering it's 4th year, is an exciting one person performance of the journey to greatness of the immortal French artist Paul Gauguin.
Fischoff, a major hit song writer of the 60s, whose songs have been recorded by everyone from Perry Como to the Monkees and from Herb Alpert to Pearl Bailey, takes us through episodes of Gauguin's exciting life from Paris to the relationship with Van Gogh in the south of France and finally to Tahiti.
magnificent reproductions of Gauguin paintings make up the entire decor.
"Mr. Fischoff, whose writing credits include a couple of pop hits from the 1960s that those of a certain age still have stuck in their head (98.6, Lazy Day), did more or less everything here, book, lyrics, musical direction. He even plays the piano accompaniment himself, and impressively! The songs...a concept album! Some stand out, like the anthem, Land of Dreams!" - New York Times
The last time Mr. Fischoff did a one man show in New York, Clive Barnes wrote in the New York Post "Fischoff doesn't just tickle the ivories! He makes them reverberate with passion and resonate with the wrath of GOD!"
Mr. Fischoff's hope is that all who see his performance will be inspired to achieve their dreams. This musical is appropriate for all ages and will inspire everyone.
