About the event

From L.A. Weekly: 

It's the night of the show and megastars Basil Shaw III and Chad Krause are missing in

action. The understudies must go on. Which of Basil and Chad's many plays will they do

tonight? Just shout out the location of your favorite one, any location really, and they'll

do that play.

This is the premise for The Understudies, a three-act play improvised on the spot by

comedians Danny Jacobs and Seth Brown. The night I saw their show at the Comedy

Central stage at the Hudson Theater, Feb. 29, the suggestion was “Vineyard.” After

describing the setting of an old vineyard barrel and tasting room, Jacobs and Brown

made up, on the spot, an hourlong, poignant Chekhovian drama about two brothers with

very different dreams. It was moving, structurally sound and absolutely hilarious.
