The most thankless job in theater takes center stage in Theresa Rebeck's wickedly funny play. This comic romp details the attempt of a Hollywood action star to become a serious actor by starring in a Kafka play on Broadway. There are some obvious obstacles to this plan, but the biggest has be his very angry understudy. Taking place over the course of a frantic dress rehearsal, The Understudy puts backstage drama in the spotlight, pitting the bitter understudy against the intellectually challenged action star. Toss a lovesick stage manager and a stagehand who's high as a kite into the mix and the stage is set for comic chaos. Will they pull it together before showtime? Learn More
