Breckenridge Backstage Theater presents The Understudy. This PG-13-rated show is performed by a cast of talented local performers!

As summarized by Breckenridge Backstage Theater:

“Franz Kafka’s undiscovered masterpiece in its Broadway premiere is the hilarious and apropos setting for Theresa Rebeck’s exploration of the existential vagaries of show business and life. Charged with running the understudy rehearsal for the production, Roxanne finds her professional and personal life colliding when Harry, a journeyman actor and her ex-fiance, is cast as the understudy to Jake, a mid-tier action star yearning for legitimacy. As Harry and Jake find their common ground, Roxanne tries to navigate the rehearsal with a stoned lightboard operator and omnipresent intercom system, the producers threatening to shutter the show and her own careening feelings about both actors and her past.”

  • Where: Breckenridge Backstage Theater: 121 S. Ridge Street, Breckenridge, CO 80424
