The Understudy, a play by Theresa Rebeck

Saturday, September 19, 2015 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
An exploration of the existential vagaries (and comedy) of show business and life.
Stage manager Roxanne is barely holding the show together with a stoned lightboard
operator, an omnipresent intercom system, and an understudy who happens to also
be her ex-fiance. Can she save this show?
"...deliver[s] a clever indictment of contemporary theatre while making
the characters' personal circumstances ever more Kafkaesque: They are no more
in control of the forces of celebrity, art, money, and Broadway than they are
of their own fates." -The New Yorker

By Theresa Rebeck
