Summary

The Understudy is the story of Nina Landau, an actress living in New York City in the early ’70s and trying hard to make it on Broadway. We follow her from her Broadway audition nerves to her eventual success on stage. Along the way we discover what goes on backstage during a Broadway show, how actors deal with the mistakes that occasionally occur, and how exciting it is to be at an opening night party at Sardi’s! Nina experiences thrilling triumphs as well as crushing setbacks and has a passionate love affair with her leading man.
