"The Understudy" isn't abysmal, though it certainly is off target.

Seems at times to aspire to being an edgy look at the transgressions a would-be Broadway star will commit to land the big role. Other times, it seems unsure of what it wants to be at all.

It's all sharp, well-performed stuff until things go from darkly comic to just plain dark, derailing -- and dragging out -- the otherwise absorbing story. Still, this one's a cut above.
