The most thankless job in theater takes center stage in Theresa Rebeck’s bitingly funny play about a Hollywood action star who attempts to become a serious actor by starring in a Franz Kafka play on Broadway, only to be further tested by an understudy with a huge chip on his shoulder who’s also got a complicated romantic past with the stage manager. Pulitzer Prize-nominee Rebeck, the creator and producer of the NBC show Smash, and one of the most produced female playwrights in America, wrote this off-Broadway hit that looks at all the genius, bitterness and ridiculousness underscoring a life in showbiz. Artists Repertory Theatre brings this Portland premiere to the Alder Stage.
