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

This was a little over the top for me. I'm a great fan of theater but just couldn't connect with this production. It was very dark and I didn't find much humor. I think I chuckled once. This is just a personal feeling but it wasn't my cup of tea.
About the Ticket Supplier: Actors' Gang
The Actors’ Gang is one of Los Angeles’ most enduring theatre ensembles. Founded in 1981 by a group of renegade theatre artists, the Gang’s mission is to create bold, original works for the stage and daring reinterpretations of the classics. Our work is raw, immediate, socially minded, and crafted with the highest artistic standards.
Over the course of our first 20 years we have produced 68 plays and won over 100 awards, winning acclaim for our interpretations of Shakespeare, Bruchner, Brecht, Moliere, Aeschylus, Ibsen and Chekhov, while developing in workshop new plays that address the world today through a prism of satire, popular culture and raucous stagecraft.
Through co-productions, The Actors’ Gang presented the West Coast Premiere of Eric Bogosian’s “Suburbia” with the Namaste Theatre Company, Roger Guenver Smith’s “A Huey P. Newton Story,” Danny Hoch’s “Jails, Hospitals, Hip Hop” with Center Theatre Group, and “Medea/Macbeth/Cinderella” with The Cornerstone Theatre Company. The Actors’ Gang has toured with productions as the US representative at the Edinburgh Festival and to New York’s Public Theatre with “Carnage, A Comedy”; with “The Imaginary Invalid” to the Rushmore Festival in New York, and in 2001 saw “Bat Boy, A Musical,” developed at the Actors’ Gang, won the Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics award for best new musical Off-Broadway in New York.
