Two men, three acts and one audience suggestion are all it takes to put an entertainment thrill-ride in motion with The Understudies. In this fully improvised comedy, understudies Danny Jacobs and Seth Brown are called upon to fill the roles of the starring no-shows on the night of the big performance. The problem is, these understudies don't know which play they are supposed to perform, so they must cleverly seek advice from the audience. With influences ranging from Tennessee Williams and Neil Simon to Arthur Miller and more, even the style of the production is up for suggestion. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Los Angeles Women's Theatre FestivalThe Los Angeles Women's Theater Festival (LAWTF) was founded by solo artist Adilah Barnes and Miriam Reed.
Adilah and Miriam were joined by solo artists of diverse disciplines (including actors, dancers, story tellers, performance artists, performance poets, sculptors and comedians).
LAWTF was inspired by the Women's Theatre Festival in Philadelphia that had created the National Women's Theatre Festival satellite in Los Angeles in 1992 at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). In 1993, LAWTF picked up the torch and continued the vision that had been planted by the Women's Theater Festival in Los Angeles.
