Coyote StageWorks: The Understudy


by Theresa Rebeck 


Directed by Chuck Yates


November 2ndthrough November 11th, 2018


A smash hit Off-Broadway, The Understudy is the hilarious comedy from Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck (Seminar, Bad Dates, Mauritius and TV’s SMASH), one of the most produced female playwrights in America.  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 rivalactors?  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!”
