The Understudy  
Everyman Theatre The Understudy
 
“A razor-sharp black comedy!” —ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY “A masterpiece of comic clockwork” (Wall Street Journal) from the creator of TV’s Smash, The Understudy places the backstage tension of a frantic rehearsal in the spotlight. Meet Harry, the “real” actor who’s just a tad bitter about his lot in the theatrical world – you see, he’s just the understudy. The grossly overpaid, action movie star he’s working with doesn’t understand the play. The charmingly lovesick stage manager happens to be his ex. And the backstage technician appears to be high – oh it’s just another day in the glamorous life of being the one who didn’t quite make the cut! Will they ever pull the show together before showtime?

Sunday in the Park with George  
Signature Theatre Sunday in the Park with George
 
Signature Theatre kicks off its 25th anniversary season with Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Sunday in the Park with George. Inspired by the life of painter George Seurat, the production recreates the world of Seurat's painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte." Through the course of the story, you get to know the painter whose unique vision altered the direction of modern art in France, as his masterpiece depicts members of different social classes enjoying a day out in the park. Through story and brilliant song, Sunday in the Park with George brings the figures in the painting to life, and you learn their stories along with that of the artist who immortalized them.
