the understudy

by Kim Ryan (no login)


Lindsay's understudy, Elise Gibney, played a sort of made up orphan, "Scout". It was far more comfortable for both the director and us for Lindsay to accept the role with an understudy, since film/tv takes precedence over theatre here (unless its one of the extremely rare, short-run Equity-level productions that might hire a child). Since Elise studied and rehearsed the role, they gave her one of the shows to perform at and Lindsay went on that show as "Scout."
