I agree with all the other comments. Standby has a terrific concept and cast. Fringe is all about showcasing new talent and boy did they do it here. Peter was absolutely fabulous! What a riot! I couldn't help but to smile each time he came on the stage. Jonathan and Cynthia were marvelous. They had amazing chemistry together. Samantha is something special. She has one of the strongest voices I have heard come to the stage in quite some time. I was truly blown away by her performance. This show, this cast, is exactly what Fringe is all about. It is definitely worth seeing. Standby has one of the most talented casts Fringe has put on stage in a while. Not to mention, great music! I look forward to seeing more of these actors in bigger productions. They deserve it. Bravo!!


I thought this show was fantastic. My wife and I were in town for the weekend and lucky to catch this rare gem. Its an uplifting tale with a great cast. The young lady who plays Samantha really stands out. She has some voice. The songs were so catchy. We've been singing "feel alive" all weekend! We absolutely loved the music! Loved the show. We've been looking on Itunes and the internet for the music. Anyone know where or if its available to download?


Really enjoyed myself at this intimate and heart catching show. Saw the original concept reading last year, and this production is only getting better. Definitely a highlight at the Fringe Festival. See it if you can score a ticket!
