Feb. 11 - Feb. 12
In the past year during this pandemic we have all missed the connection that live performances bring from audience to performer and performer to audience.
We go to the theater to connect with our humanity in the vulnerability of a story, a character, to experience life. For all of us who have lived and pushed through this last year, how will we begin to relate to others in such a connected way again?
Standby brings to light the trials and tribulations the COVID Crisis has cultivated in the world of Zoom: being confined to a space, a screen, a square has taken its toll on all of us.
Join us in celebrating the complexities this past year has brought us and “…if there’s going to be another day, well then, by damn, we have to do all we can to make it that much better."
