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. The charmingly ditzy stage manager must prevent a battle royale from developing between the two rival actors which begs the question -- will the show go on? Spirited and laugh-out-loud funny, The Understudy places the backstage friction of a frenzied rehearsal center stage with vivacious satire and Kafkaesque theatrics.
"A masterpiece of comic clockwork, raucously funny!"
-- The Wall Street Journal
