Premieres Sunday 9/8c. Watch online previews.
The company anxiously waits in the theater lobby while Derek, Julia, Tom and Eileen talk out the future of their show. They can't afford to lose any more money; SOMEONE is going on tonight as Marilyn. The question is... is it Karen or Ivy? Ivy seems like the obvious choice; she knows all the numbers and is groomed for the part. But Karen IS the understudy, and there's just something about her that tells Derek she's the right choice. When Derek has another vision of Karen as Marilyn in that same purple dress, he goes with his gut and calls in Karen with the shocking announcement! Julia and Tom put on smiles for a very nervous Karen, but later they sideline Derek, insisting that she's too green for the part. But Derek's determined and won't let anyone stand in the way of making his vision a reality.
