    The Understudy

    Presented by at The Lyric Stage Company

    January 1 - January 29, 2011


    The Understudy

    By Theresa Rebeck

    Directed by Elliot Norton Award winner Larry Coen


    When a Hollywood action star who is trying to prove himself in a serious Broadway play comes up against a new understudy with a chip on his shoulder and a tangled romantic past, the results are hilarious. Lyric favorite Theresa Rebeck (The Scene) pokes affectionate fun at the inner workings of the world of the theatre in this smart new comedy. "Funny, funny, funny." (The Boston Globe)

      There was a lot of energy that was generated by the 3 actors. They were very good, however I wasn't familiar with Franz Kafka, so I felt I was missing something.
