Re: understudy

by Natalie (no login)


When I saw Wicked a few weeks ago, I was disappointed when I saw that Elphaba would be played by the standby (the actress had hurt her ankle), but I was pleasantly surprised. While I'm sure most understudies are very well prepared, I had a bad experience with an understudy playing Belle in Beauty and the Beast, but that may have just been a fluke. Either way, I definitely felt like there was more energy surrounding an understudy, and I always feel a little excited for the actor.
