The Understudy is the latest comedy from Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck, one of the most produced female playwrights in America. David Kennedy directs. When a smug Hollywood action star lands a prestigious role in Franz Kafka's newly discovered play on Broadway, things couldn't be better...until he meets his understudy. Can a love-sick, charmingly ditzy stage manager prevent a battle royale from developing between the two rival actors? Will the show go on?
