THE UNDERSTUDY, by Theresa Rebeck
THE STORY:  In this hilarious and apropos setting -- Franz Kafka's "newly discovered"  masterpiece in its Broadway premiere -- award-winning playwright Theresa Rebeck explores the existential vagaries of show business and life.
Charged with running the understudy rehearsal for the production, Roxanne finds her professional and personal life colliding when Harry, a journeyman actor and her ex-fiance, is cast as the understudy to Jake, a mid-tier action star yearning for legitimacy.   As Harry and Jake find their common ground, Roxanne tries to navigate the rehearsal with a stoned light board operator, an omnipresent intercom system, the producers threatening to shutter the show, and her own careening feelings about both actors and her past.  Will the show go on?  THE UNDERSTUDY is a dazzling, very funny, charming and humanistic look at people trying to do what they love.  In the end, facing wild obstacles that keep mounting, all anyone can do is dance.  The performance runs for 1 hour and 15 minutes without an intermission.
