The Understudy cover


Terminally unemployed, dating challenged Rebecca (Marin Ireland) thinks she’s scored her big break on Broadway by landing a job with the fickle Ian (Richard Kind) helping him manage the darling diva Simone (Kelli Giddish). Instead of a dream job, Rebecca finds herself scrubbing floors while careening from one disastrous relationship to the next. When Simone confronts her, she “accidentally” shoves her down a flight of stairs. Suddenly a star is born as Rebecca takes over, but then a bigger Diva is brought in, The Great Greta (Gloria Reuben). What to do? Kill your way to the top.
