– Dan Kois, New York Magazine

Roundabout Theatre Company’s (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) limited engagement of The Understudy will play its final performance on Sunday, January 17th at 2:00 PM. Theresa Rebeck’s The Understudy is directed by Scott Ellis featuring Mark-Paul Gosselaar as “Jake”,  Justin Kirk as “Harry” and Julie White as “Roxanne”.

The most thankless job in theatre takes center stage in Theresa Rebeck‘s new 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.

THE UNDERSTUDY reviewed in NY Magazine

NEW YORK MAGAZINE

November 9, 2009

 

The Lady With (Almost) All the Answers

Sometimes a veneer of professionalism is the only thing masking all-out panic. Julie White, in The Understudy, gives us both at once.

 

By Dan Kois

 

Roxanne is a sensible woman. All stage managers are. She wears a comfortable purple hoodie and a headset. She knows where every chair is marked onstage and the timing of every light cue. When a phone rings during a rehearsal, she sharply calls out, “Cell phone! Cell phone!” She scolds actors for eating prop bananas during rehearsal.

 

So we rejoice when, in The Understudy, Theresa Rebeck’s backstage comedy at the Roundabout, Roxanne is thrown entirely off-kilter by the sudden appearance of her actor ex-fiancé, Harry. Usually so collected, Roxanne is transformed by Harry’s prickly charm into an irritable wreck throughout an arduous pickup rehearsal for the Broadway production of an undiscovered play by Kafka. Why should we be glad that Harry’s return turns Roxanne’s orderly world upside down? Because Roxanne is played by Julie White, theater’s most accomplished purveyor of barely restrained hysteria, and to watch White play Roxanne falling to pieces, and then pulling herself back together, is the great pleasure of The Understudy.

 

White’s loopy voice rises in panic and falls into sorrow, just as her hands nervously fly up to tie her hair into a ponytail, pull it free, and tie it up again. She’s the best of a thoroughly excellent trio, rounded out by Justin Kirk as the talented Harry, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Jake, the Hollywood action star for whom a bitter Harry is the understudy.
