By Theresa Rebeck, directed by Larry Schneider
In the Carriage House at the Lyndhurst

Opening night is Friday, July 10, the show runs Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays July 11 through 26, all at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $35.00 for adults and $30.00 for seniors and children (16 and under) and are available at Lyndhurst.org or by calling 888-71-TICKETS. Group sales available at 914-303-6840.
In this bitingly witty and entertaining comedy, the lights of Broadway cast an affectionate glow on one of the most notorious roles in the theater: the understudy. The play opens with Franz Kafka’s undiscovered masterpiece making its Broadway premiere. Roxanne, the stage manager, has the daunting task of running the understudy rehearsal. Enter Harry, a journeyman actor who just happens to be Roxanne’s ex-fiancé. And then there’s Jake, a Hollywood action star craving a little legitimacy. Throw in an unreliable techie and a bunch of producers threatening to close down the show and you have one very funny comedy.
Veteran director Larry Schneider brings together a sterling cast including Carly Jayne Lillo, Peter Lillo and Michael Muldoon to deliver this delightful comedy to the wonderful Lyndhurst Carriage House Theatre. Nan Weiss and Emmy Schwartz are the indomitable stage managers.
