ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the challenges faced by actors while performing as an understudy. It is noted that understudies are largely unsung, and by definition they are viewed as being the second best. According to actor Bob Ari, one of the major drawbacks in being an understudy is just boredom, having to hang around without ever having a chance to perform. Information about actor Brian Dennehy's understudy Jeff Steitzer is also presented.
