Julie White stars in the New York premiere of Theresa Rebeck's new play.
Comments from published critics
‘‘"Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Justin Kirk and Julie White are a thoroughly excellent trio."’’
‘‘"The full eye roll, virtually a reflex gesture for many New Yorkers, becomes a comic drama in itself in [star Julie] White’s hands—or should I say sockets? Even Ms. White’s...agile frame seems to embody perfectly a state of brittle anxiousness, like a tuning fork ever primed to be set quivering." ’’
‘‘"[Director] Scott Ellis' production [of The Understudy] is impeccably cast and paced."’’
‘‘"[Playwright] Theresa Rebeck's The Understudy is a masterpiece of comic clockwork. Pulverizingly funny!"’’
‘‘"The one-act gains considerable fizz from [director] Scott Ellis' punchy production and from the bristling interplay of its three fine actors, each of them exposing different shades of a profession that ricochets between glory and rejection."’’
