Amphibian Stage Productions - Fort Worth Theatre

The Understudy
by Theresa Rebeck

July 19 – August 5, Thursday – Saturday 8 PM, Sunday 2 PM

The Understudy

The star he's working with doesn't get the play. The disgruntled stage manager happens to be his bitter ex-fiancée. The set technician is high. Just another day in the life of an understudy. The most thankless job in theatre takes center stage in Theresa Rebeck's bitingly funny look at the underbelly of the acting world. Through the course of a dress rehearsal, we glimpse all the genius, bitterness and ridiculousness that underscore a life in showbiz.
