Director Adam Immerwahr talks about working on The Understudy. It's a play about working on a play, specifically, a long-lost play written by Franz Kafka that is being performed on Broadway to sold out crowds, thanks to the action-movie star in the lead role. The Understudy was written by Theresa Rebeck, best known for the television series Smash - another behind the scenes story about Broadway.
